Thoughts ahead of Zygon Inversion

Lots of teasers (as usual) for tonight’s Zygon Inversion, and I note it is written by Peter Harness and Steven Moffat. This probably means some series continuity as well as a wrap to last weeks Zygon Invasion. Last week’s story was (mostly) well received and some spoiler-free reviews for tonight are also positive. I have a few…

Zygon Invasion reviewed

Zygon Invasion gave us Zygons a-plenty, rock&roll Doctor, evil Clara, foreign settings and much mystery under London. Lots to reflect on, lots of elements I quite liked, some I didn’t. Not a great episode for me overall, but I much preferred it to Peter Harness’s previous story Kill the Moon: let’s pick over the pieces…

Thoughts ahead of the Zygon Invasion

Tomorrow’s Doctor Who gives the return of Osgood and The Zygon Invasion. Peter Harness wrote this (and also co-wrote next week’s Zygon Inversion) and also wrote last season’s Kill the Moon. I didn’t like Kill the Moon but am more than happy to treat Zygon Invasion on its merits. After all we get plenty to chew over…

Downtime comes to Reeltime

An announcement from Reeltime Pictures on their Time Travel TV website; they have the licence to distribute the Doctor Who spin-off Downtime. For those who don’t know (and the wiki entry is here), this story follows on from Web of Fear many years later, and pitches the Brigadier and Sarah Jane Smith against the Great Intelligence.

Full UNIT Extinction details from Big Finish

Following the early news release from the Radio Times (Osgood comes to Big Finish UNIT Extinction), Big Finish has announced full details of the main cast for the new boxset. Not only is Ingrid Oliver (picture, sans glasses, from the Big Finish FaceBook feed) back as Osgood, but other characters have been announced.

Osgood comes to Big Finish UNIT Extinction

As we might have guessed (but didn’t), Ingrid Oliver will be playing Osgood in the Big Finish UNIT Extinction boxset, available in November 2015, alongside Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart. The details were published first by the Radio Times: Doctor Who stars Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver get their own spin-off adventure. <:> Message Ends <:>

Farming with Doctor Who Legacy

As part of this week’s patch, Tiny Rebel Games’s latest update to Doctor Who Legacy brought us Anna’s Playground Part 2 and some new farming levels. The newsletter gives us updates on the next version of the app (Android problems), the ability for expert allies to wear costumes for non-expert variants and some farming levels. Next week…

UNIT: Extinction announced!

Let’s just enjoy the warm glow of today’s announcement: yes it’s a fully BBC approved new series, UNIT: Extinction with Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart! See UNIT – EXTINCTION for details. Suffice it to say Autons!

Legacy of the Brigadier

Tiny Rebel Games has released three new Season 8 levels for Doctor Who Legacy and, as promised we have Kate Stewart as the new companion. The levels cover Dark Water and Death in Heaven. Kate is a green gem character with secondary yellow and over-power green as her power. The level is great fun to play featuring wave after…

Death in Heaven reviewed

So, that’s the end of the first Capaldi season and Steven Moffat gave us the impressive (yet flawed) Death in Heaven to mark the occasion. As I guessed there has been much love and much despair amongst fandom.

It’s the power of three!

So as we wait for this week’s episode of Doctor Who entitled The Power of Three (here on iPlayer) I am not sure what to make of the trailers. Last week’s Town Called Mercy which I commented on here had mixed reactions and I wonder what people will make of this week’s story which is clearly going to lead…
