Here’s one I’d been saving—not The Horns of Nimon, I’m just using a screenshot from it, but Wave of Destruction, a nice new Doctor Who audio play from January this year, the first in a Big Finish series that reunites Tom Baker and Lalla Ward as the Doctor and Romana, respectively, for the first time in over thirty…
Madame Vastra’s favourite squeeze Jenny Flint has been resurrected as a deadly duo in the new Welsh language film Y Llyfrgell - The Library Suicides.
I know we have sophisticated sexy aphrodisiacs like Häagen-Dazs these days, and there is nothing more erotic than the Girl of Steel licking a vanilla scoop or two, but weren’t ice creams and lollies more fun in the bad old days? You can’t beat a good old fashioned Lemonade Sparkle. Can you?
Which Who are you? Radio Times has a short quiz that lets you uncover The Doctor you were destined to play. I’ve just had a crack at it and find myself exposed as the Fourth Doctor. You are a terrible influence Tom, it’s all your fault.
Science-Fiction as a TV genre has always been one to indulge in healthy debates and thought exercises on topics that effect all of us and our futures, whether it be the fundamental threat of advanced Artificial Intelligence in Person of Interest or looking at the sort of society we want to become in the various forms…
Rover might be able to stamp down on drake-faced spies like No 6, but the super technology used in the bouncing security system seems unable to stop an infestation of rare and strange creatures.
Panini have just reprinted one of Marvel’s best Doctor Who comics. It’s a cracker - and with so much that is right about it, the serial is also the one where everything went wrong!
I’m a bit late with this, but BBC Radio 4 Extra are broadcasting a few Big Finish 6th Doctor stories atm, starting two weeks ago with ‘The Crimes of Thomas Brewster’, followed by Ep1 of Industrial Evolution last Saturday, Ep2 next Saturday & Ep1 of The Curse of Davros on the 25th. I don’t know if there are anymore…
A new interview with Steven Moffat has revealed that they had offered the role of the twelfth Doctor to a Black actor but that things “didn’t work out”. The interview goes on to reveal that Moffat, whose tenure has been marked by complaints around his lack of diversity when it comes to casting choices, that he wants…
In latest news from Radio Times it appears that Chibnall, who will be taking the reigns from Moffat in 2018, is already planning big changes to how the show is made, primarily through the rumoured adoption of the ‘writers room’ system seen in the US where the core writing team is made up of a number of full-time…
Personally, I had no doubt that Capaldi would be making an appearance in the first episode of the new Doctor Who spin-off, considering this synopsis recently released by the BBC:
Peter Davison and Hannah Murray are part of the cast of Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully, a BBC Radio4 comedy about the small-scale invasion of Earth, or at least the Buckinghamshire village of Cresdon Greenby, by the Geonin and their smooth-talking leader, Uljabaan.
The BBC have finally revealed the new companion and that is Bill, played by relative unknown Pearl Mackie. So far it appears she is being heavily based on Donna as her first appearance shows her to be a quite gobby person who can’t be quiet.
The BBC has announced that the latest groupie to follow the Doctor will be revealed during half-time at this Saturday’s FA Cup Semi-Final. This is most likely an attempt by the BBC to drum up interest in the show but seems to be odd timing given how the series itself won’t air until next year.
Women who kick ass, or are bad ass, have been coming more to the forefront of science fiction and fantasy in recent years. In books, movies, television, and comics we are seeing more of them. That is fantastic. However, I feel like they might be casting a shadow on great female characters whose strength is not…

For events in the most recent episode of Doctor Who, Charlie Jane Anders has put the blame squarely on the Doctor’s shoulders. I respectfully disagree. We’ll be covering the newest episode (as well some classics) to look at what happened, how it happened, and where the blame lies, if any. Spoilers below.
