Archetype, trope or formula? As we return to the "base under siege" style of Doctor Who storytelling, does writer Toby Whithouse do something fresh with it? And is it time for a serious talk about Clara?
The universes are collapsing: Reality Bomb has invaded 2MTL to explore just what happened when the BBC made its much-hyped-on-social-media announcement about the new Doctor Who spinoff, Class. Written by Graeme Burk; performed by Graeme Burk, Chip Sudderth, Bill Evenson and Kim Rogers; lovingly balanced and tweaked by Alex Kennard.
Our Series 9 reviews begin with a confession, a pre-credits turnaround, a comparison to "The End of Time" (That'll enrage my friends at Radio Free Skaro!), and a bit of bet-hedging!
Graeme Burk and Robert Smith? (his question mark is canon) are back to talk about The Doctors are In from ECW Press, their exhaustive yet reader-friendly guide to each of the Doctors' incarnations. Once in a while, they even agree with each other.
OK, so that was a great second trailer for Series 9, with loads and loads of Daleks.
Except for those guys introduced in "Victory of the Daleks."
Alas, the New Paradigm.
