❉ This year’s long game begins…
❉ This is proving to be a vintage year for Doctor Who.
❉ Knock Knock was so good it could have been made for the classic series.
❉ 100% good old fashioned historical Doctor Who.
❉ “I’m happy, hope you’re happy too.”
❉ “Do you think your bacon sandwich loves you back?”
❉ The Stranglers’ debut LP is forty years old and still unassailable.
❉ BILL IS BRILL! New companion actress Pearl Mackie was the star of the Doctor Who panel.
❉ The Stranglers have seen off all competition, to emerge as the living embodiment of how to do alternative rock that defies categorisation.
❉ Big Finish’s adaptation is an enjoyably authentic scientific romance, with some timely things to say about imperialism and nationalism.
