Or a case for buying the graphic novel when it comes out!

It will have the return of P.J. Maybe after a long absence, a John Smith one-off called Survivor Type which is one of my favourites, and the tenth anniversary episode of the Megazine. It will also conclude volume 3 of the Meg with the death of Judge Castillo.

About volume 40 or so.

That's where we last saw him.

Just because it's not allowed doesn't mean it doesn't happen!

Dr Who has always had people being killed off by the baddy. He wouldn't seem quite as threatening if he was only knocking them out.

It can be controlled, if we rip out the offenders' tongues with pliers.

Thanks Andy, I'm rather encouraged by that article.

All of Daveycandlish's alternative suggestions are perfectly sensible, but my preference would be to see a new Dr Who episode that takes full advantage of the show's unique premise.

Other Earth-based SF shows like Black Mirror are perfectly good too, but that isn't really the point -- they're entirely different shows which aren't about someone who has a TARDIS that can take them anywhere and anywhen.

Anyway, maybe next week will be better.

Skip Tracer is definitely better than it used to be.

In fairness, she's from Gallifrey so English isn't her first language. Also she couldn't even remember her own name at the time, so remembering English grammar was a tall order.

No, it doesn't have to have recognisable actors to be good, it just concerns me that they used to have them and now (for the most part) they don't. It suggests the BBC doesn't care about the show as much as they used to. I hope I'm wrong.

I do like Dr Who; if I didn't I wouldn't care enough to come in here and say what I think about it. It doesn't matter to me how many times a previous new doctor has had their first episode on Earth, just because they've made the same mistake 11 times before doesn't mean it's the right thing to do this time. You can go to any planet you can imagine, at any time ever, and you go to England in 2018? Fuck that. I can watch Eastenders for that.

I'm not saying it's the first time it's ever happened. I'm just saying it's not good enough.

Am I the only one who thought it was crap? The Dr can go anywhere in the whole of time and space, and her first adventure is in England in the present day? That's bollocks!

Then in the end credits (I like the new music) there's a long list of actors almost none of whom I've ever heard of. They used to have loads of famous actors, now it's Lee Mack and Art Malik and the rest are a bunch of children. Has their budget been cut?

Jodie W was good though. Like watching David Tennant again.

Help! / Re: Rob Williams Dreddverse

As well as the stories you mentioned (I assume you're including Enceladus when you say Titan), you definitely need to read Acts of Grud in progs 2004-2006, as the current story is a direct sequel.

Also Change of Loyalties, prog 1466, might be relevant even though it's by Gordon Rennie as it introduces Kazan junior.

Other stories by Williams which may or may not turn out to be relevant are Get Sin, progs 2001-2003, Boxing Day in 2016's Prog 2011, The Fields, progs 2035-36 and Fit For Purpose, progs 2073-74, although I think the last three are Judge Pin stories so they may not come up.
