This review is more to do with impressions having watched the first extended episode. What is most surprising is […]

Doctor Who, SF And Football by John Rivers (article).

On my Facebook and Twitter timelines, throughout and after the World Cup Final, an interesting thing happened. During half-time of the BBC’s Final coverage, Gary Lineker skilfully negotiated a ‘Doctor Who’ pun with all the finesse he showed in putting three past Poland in the 1986 competition’s group stages and introduced the new ‘Doctor Who’ […]

So, unsurprisingly, they end up on the trail of ‘The Crooked Man’. This is the third adventure of […]

It’s a funny old world when they run the new season 8 Who trailer during the World Cup. Does football and scifi mix? Like oil and water, my friend.

It was written by Andrew Cartmel, former ‘Doctor Who’ script editor and novelist and printed in 2005. Cartmel worked on ‘Doctor Who’ from 1986 to 1989. He was charged […]

Doctor Who: The Complete Series by Mark Campbell (book review).
