Short Trips: The Darkened Earth review

I had a listen to John Pritchard’s Doctor Who Short Trips: The Darkened Earth and put some thoughts together for CultBox (Doctor Who: Short Trips – The Darkened Earth review).

From the cover we see Sylvester will be talking Seventh Doctor, and the Radio Times on DWM 486 mention Moffat talking about where Missy might sit in the Master’s timeline (before Simm?)…
