Doctor Who: Delta And The Bannermen by Malcolm Kohill (DVD review).

‘Delta And The Bannermen’ is literally a roller-coaster plot with everything in three and later four different places at once before combining in a 1950s holiday camp. Garvok (actor Don Henderson) and his Bannermen have nearly committed genocide against the Chimerons, with only its queen, Delta (actress Belinda Mayne) escaping with a package. Elsewhere, the […]

We all know that in her incarnation as the Master she had a full and quite destructive relationship with the universe. This is the contribution of […]

Doctor Who – The TV Movie by Gary Russell (book review).

How thrilling that ‘Doctor Who’ gets a TV movie. The excitement this generated in 1996 when we didn’t have Twitter to moan/speculate on it was incredible. This was the big chance to bring the Doctor back from his long holiday and then there was that wig. It would have its own Twitter account these days. […]
