What do we know about the Chibnall Masterplan?

With The Timeless Children like it or not Doctor Who entered a new phase. In the 1980s / 90s we had aspects of the Cartmel Masterplan, then RTD reset the show to bring it back. Steven Moffat undid some of that, weaved his own ideas and now Chris Chibnall has really stirred things up. There’s…

New Seventh Doctor Comics for 2018!

Over on Amazon I’ve noticed a new Seventh Doctor novel series has been revealed, with the intriguing title of: Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor Volume 1.

Totter’s Lane 2013?
