The balloon's going up. Sunday after Wimbledon, we'll know who the Thirteenth Doctor is. Here are 120 seconds (more or less) of thoughts as fandom holds its breath.
OK, so Chip has a new podcast that he's spending more time on, and yet he can't wait until next Tuesday to respond to this Guardian column: "How Can Smug, Stale Doctor Who Get Back to its Glory Days?" Here we go…
