    Well I didn't expect Barrowman to get dropped from Big Finish! Still heartbroken about Noel Clarke.
    Putting zero blame on the other cast for not speaking out. Would rather work with John than Noel.
    Anyway, if Jack was intended for this year then wow that's going to be some last minute rewrites on the lockdown developed stories!
    Zero evidence Captain Jack in this series, unlike the evidence they've been accused of etc.

    And I look forward to rolling my eyes when Barrowman bought up again during S13 broadcast!

    Clarke is a sexual predator who like his counterparts Bill Cosby and Clarence Thomas is trying to use the Oppressed Black Man image to protect himself. Being from an oppressed group doesn't stop one from being a cr-phole human being.

    If anyone's trying to stop you watching Torchwood it's... the people who made Torchwood.

    Well if anyone is still interested. Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill, Chris Chibnall and John Bishop will release their Comic-Con interview about the new series at 6pm tonight.
    No idea if there'll be a trailer release.
    But it's something to do on a Sunday evening.
    Doesn't it seem like Christmas was just yesterday?

    I thought we were going to get that continuously after The Woman Who Fell To Earth cliffhanger.
    Didn't quite turn out that way. I've enjoyed the last two series. If it takes it further then wonderful!
    I'm thinking of later Lost In Space episodes ending with "To Be Continued....Next Week".
    Except it'll probably be more Who cliffhangers.
    Either way, this year is going really fast, don't you feel?

    Cliffhanger? what is this "cliffhanger" of which you speak?

    *sudden flash of realisation*

    Don't tell me the lead singer of the Shadows is going to be in Doctor Who?!

    Well the speculation could begin from that! Personally, I'd rather just enjoy the remaining episodes we have left because. Sigh... Just when switching on as well! Why do they do this? They didn't with RTD and Tennant!

    I see that J Michael Straczynski has declared an interest in the showrunner's job, over on Twitter. A talented, experienced genre writer with plenty of experience building a tv series from scratch... he's got no chance of getting the job, then!

    Well aside from Doctor Who bring made, I really feel the next few years we'll see the end of the BBC as we know it. It will be good not seeing pensioners going to prison for not paying the licence fee. But what could replace it?
    And I'll take (not directed at you MacNimon or anyone on here) "woke" Doctor Who over "apolitical but really Tory propaganda" Doctor Who!
    Anyway, that's a bit in the future. We've got a new series and three specials to look forward to.

    Regardless of whether new episodes are considered "woke" or political or anything else, it really isn't too important as long as they tell good, enjoyable, well-acted and well made memorable stories which can be enjoyed by a wide range of people. The jury's out on how well they've succeeded doing that over the past decade or so...

    Let's just hope that they concentrate on making good tv rather than making 'relevant' tv!

    Doesn't the absolute best TV still remain good TV decades later? eg. Fawlty Towers. So good we're still watching it nearly 50 years later (like some serial purporting to be the origins of a famous Doctor Who monster which I could mention...) The main message of The Germans, even in its edited form, still manages to be "relevant" now as then, because the message is done with more subtlety than recent Who ever could. The rest of the run is good without the need to be socio-politically relevant, and still remains relevant because it was billed as comedy, and it still makes people laugh.

    The case rests. Now you can send me to Pseuds' Corner!
