    Alternatively, it means ‘we’re too chicken┬áto go for anything other than a white, male vanilla Doc but we’ll make up for it in other ways, honest guv’.

    But agree that CC should be given every benefit of the doubt in the meantime. I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised and noshing down on some humble pie next year….

    @nick

    re. a full-series story. Even if Chibnall wrote them all, which I suspect is an impossible task for a Who showrunner, I still don’t think it would work. Unlike Moffat’s stories under RTD, which were pretty tight, Chibnall’s stories have always seemed to contain one or two fundamental flaws in my view. The danger is that his attention to…[Read more]

    @missrori — I think if the Monks Trilogy proved anything it’s that a whole-series storyline would be an absolutely terrible idea.

    But I agree that there are many reasons for the show’s diminished profile at the moment and few of them are the fault of the current production team. It’s odd that the RT seem to be running two versions of essentially…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip — I wonder if what SM is doing this series is essentially revisiting the Doctor/Master dynamic from Curse of Fatal Death, only this time seriously (or at least with fewer bellylaughs)….

    On another note, it’s Glasgow Comic Con at the end of the month. Any of the Scottish contingent planning on going?

    @mudlark — glad to hear you’re OK after your episode

    @nick and @bluesqueakpip — I think Corbyn’s been doing very well at widening his appeal over the last few months. There’s no sign that he won’t be able to continue doing this I reckon. His immediate challenge is the tricky job of forming a shadow cabinet that looks like a Government in…[Read more]

    Not a bad episode at all and possibly Gatiss’s best, certainly his best since The Unquiet Dead. I agree with @arbutus et al that it very much had a BG feel — you can get much more BG than a tunnel-based romp with lumbering monsters and a factional dispute. Even the set design for much of the stories this year seems to be deliberately retro,…[Read more]

    No doubt most will have seen this already. Contains some strong language obvs…

    Agree with pretty much all of the above. Some kind of Norway-like situation seems likely, which won’t placate the hardcore kipper wing of the Tory party and will end up toppling May. But I don’t think she’ll get anywhere near that stage anyway. True, there are no obvious unity candidates to lead the party but Boris is reckless and ambitious enough…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave — yes, the power-sharing arrangements are still in a state of flux and had been put on hold for the general election. And yes, some form of formal alliance between the Tories and the DUP does skew the nature of the talks somewhat. Certainly I don’t imagine Sinn Fein will be at all happy about it — and I wouldn’t be at all…[Read more]

    @wolfweed — that video is excellent but begs the question why didn’t he get more votes? He certainly deserved them.

    @mudlark — yes, the DUP is the worst of all possible worlds. Reminiscent of when the Cybermen suggested a pact with the Daleks in Doomsday and will undoubtedly go the same way, even if it takes a little longer. As someone on…[Read more]
