Torchwood 1.4 Cyberwoman

My rewatch of Torchwood has finally drifted into series 1 episode 4, Cyberwoman by Chris Chibnall. I was unsure about it on transmission and I’m still unsure. I will try to explain why.

Tom Baker and the Return of the Cybermen

Big Finish is to create another Doctor Who Lost Story and this time it’s Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor in Return of the Cybermen. Some details are available and more are promised in the April Doctor Who Magazine. We don’t even have artwork yet, hence the weird version of Revenge of the Cybermen.

The DWC writers collective view on Ascension of the Cybermen

If you get to the end of this stark (and largely negative) assessment of Ascension of the Cybermen you’ll see my comment about trying to stay positive. Maybe it will all be wonderful, but a lot of plates are in play for The Timeless Children. Until tonight, here are our views on last week: HERE’S…

More Musings on the Timeless Children

It’s nearly the end of series 12 of Doctor Who so plenty of speculation required. I’ve already put together some Thoughts ahead of the Timeless Children and there’s so much at play here I need to record some more. I’ve also speculated on the fate of the companions. Now I’ve rewatched the (short) YouTube trailer,…

Thoughts ahead of The Timeless Children

The BBC has posted some gallery shots for The Timeless Children so it must be time for rampant speculation. If there’s one thing I’ve seen a lot of since Ascension of the Cybermen it’s speculation. I’m still positive, I do think Chris Chibnall has all the plates spinning not to crash down in an unholy…

Ascension of the Cybermen review

In many ways this review is a cheat. It’s not a real review and it’s conclusions are very much subject to change. In fact, as was made clear at the end, everything will change. The truth is Ascension of the Cybermen was intriguing and tantalising, but in the end incomplete. Everything pivots on The Timeless…

Thoughts ahead of Ascension of the Cybermen

Only a few more days until Ascension of the Cybermen the first part of the series 12 finale. We have a limited synopsis and some nice pictures in the gallery. We expect surprises and action and, of course, Cybermen. What else might we expect?

Is the Master back in The Timeless Children?

Following the BBC’s reveal of partial details for The Timeless Children, the final episode of series 12 of Doctor Who it seems the Master will be returning! If you want the reason why, check out the CultBox post: Doctor Who ‘The Timeless Children’ synopsis. We should also expect lots of details on the Chibnall Masterplan!…

Ascension of the Cybermen gallery

The BBC has released a decent sized gallery for Ascension of the Cybermen and in my eyes it has a steampunk aesthetic. I’ve seen comments about Ryan in a strange alien machine looking like he’s strapped in for cyber-conversion. Given someone else is also shown in a similar (the same?) device, I think it might…

Creating the Lone Cyberman

For a change the BBC has put a longer video on YouTube for Haunting of Villa Diodati – it’s about the Lone Cyberman: Creating the Lone Cyberman | The Haunting of Villa Diodati | Doctor Who: Series 12 it’s not up to Behind the Scenes length, but worth a watch if you’ve 5 minutes and…
