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.

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…

New series 12 trailer

It’s November 23 and a new trailer for Doctor Who Series 12 on YouTube. Cybermen (or at least one of), Judoon, Paris / Lenny Henry / Stephen Fry and even something a lot like the Racnoss. I’m tempted to say it looks rather good and not too long now (fingers crossed). Nearly Christmas/ New Year!…
