As we celebrate the festivities, you might be wondering what’s in store over the Christmas period here at the Doctor Who Companion. Well, let’s keep you in the loop because we’ve got some cool stuff planned (even if I do say so myself).
As you’ll probably have noticed, we’re ramping up the rate at which we publish the season reviews. These have been going on since July, regularly going online twice a week. We took a brief break to catch up on news – the BBC were rude enough to schedule Series 12 early in 2020, meaning we did’t have enough space for all the content we had planned – but now, we’re full steam ahead again.
This includes reviews of all TV episodes up to the most recent series. For instance, Bar Nash-Williams has got a monopoly on regenerations, as she covers the 2009 specials, the 2013 specials, and Series 10, up to Twice Upon A Time (I’ve stuck my oar in for the latter too; you’ll have to forgive me, but I love Series 10). Frank Danes casts an eye on Jodie Whittaker’s debut season. James Baldock gets merry when assessing two Twelfth Doctor Christmas specials. Rick Lundeen waxes lyrical about Series 8. And then there’s more…!
These lead into our episodic reviews of Series 12, beginning with Spyfall in the New Year.
We’ve also got some more features lined up, and, as a rare treat, festive fiction. That project began at the weekend with Furby from the Deep, and continues throughout the coming fortnight. These tales include adventures for the Thirteenth Doctor, catch-ups with companions, and… uh, slugs! No, really.
Of course, plans are brewing for 2020, but it’s a tad early to announce anything just yet. Especially as, before we start another big project, we’ve got Series 12 to enjoy.
Stay with us, folks. The best is still to come…
