Desert Island Doctors

I just can’t get excited about the forthcoming departure of Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall. Instead I wrote a piece about Doctor Who actors who have been on Desert Island Discs for Cultbox. Desert Island Doctors — Who actors’ favourite music revealed. Enjoy! <– Message Ends —>

Revolution of the Daleks collective review on the DWC

Back in the day (January) a group of Doctor Who Companion writers pooled their thoughts on Revolution of the Daleks. Curiously, I wrote my review before seeing the show, just as an experiment. I wasn’t far off; that tells me something about the show / my power of prediction / prejudging reviews / the meaning…

Celestial Toyroom #514 in mailboxes now

The DWAS free to members Celestial Toyroom #514 is out now, and whatever your views of recent series, the cover is superb (and a little psychedelic IMHO). Full details here. Do read JR Southall’s article on the show’s future. >>> Message Ends <<<

Revolution of the Daleks review on Cultbox

I reviewed Revolution of the Daleks on Cultbox. I broadly enjoyed it even if it felt more like a big end of series wrap-up than a special seasonal tale. Loose ends tidied up (a bit), colour-by-numbers Dalek story and a reduction in numbers on board the TARDIS (immediately changed by John Bishop!) I may have…

Not very excited for Revolution of the Daleks

If you come here often, you’ll have spotted I’ve been a bit quiet recently. I’ve also not had much to say about Revolution of the Daleks, despite the trailer. I’m also not that moved by fan speculation / returning villains / Daleks. I’ve a strong sense of seen it all before or just not that…

A new look for Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor?

Apologies for the trivial nature of this post, but it was bugging me. I like the new poster for Revolution of the Daleks, but something was different. Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor looks different (and in my mind more imposing). I figured it out — hair brushed back behind the ears! New head shape and a…

Jack’s back for the Revolution of the Daleks

So, on Monday we learned Jack Harkness will be back (again) in Doctor Who Revolution of the Daleks. I find myself unsurprised and I think it’s rather neat in some ways. I’ll explain why below…

My 2020 Vision of Doctor Who published in TARDIS

Now copies of the reborn TARDIS magazine from the DWAS are popping through people’s doors, I can talk about the article I wrote. Called 2020 Vision: Living in Exciting Times it’s an unashamedly positive look at the health of Doctor Who and looking forward to the show’s continued evolution.

Celestial Toyroom 505 now out!

If you’re a DWAS member, and subject to local variation in postal deliveries, you may already have or be about to get the latest Celestial Toyroom through your letterbox. Inside are the usual range of reviews, articles, an interview with Mandip herself and reaction to the Timeless Children revelations. Details on the DWAS site here….

The DWC talks Timeless Children – in depth

The collective talents had so much to say about The Timeless Children it had to be published in several parts. What’s more the site was taken off line for its own regeneration ahead of publication. Suffice it to say opinion is ‘mixed’ and ‘critical’. Even my own snippet in the group review is sarcastic and…

Things She Thought While Falling

Today, as well as Jodie Whittaker’s message we had a (very) short story from Chris Chibnall. He tells us just what the Thirteenth Doctor thought as she fell to Earth after regenerating. It’s on the BBC Doctor Who site: A new very short story by Chris Chibnall. <<+ Message Ends +>>
