Episode 256 – Nevermore

ITTV LOGO NEWn this episode we review the swan song for a particular character of the show. We say goodbye, but question whether this is truly the end for a certain character. We give our impressions on the exit and look at Face the Raven on the whole and discuss the the story and its implications for the future of the series.

But first, we review the fourth novel in the on-going Lethbridge-Stewart series published by Candy Jar Books. This time it’s the Nick Walters penned Mutually Assured Domination. We give our impressions on the book which features a return of the Quarks and their ever menacing masters, the Dominators.

Also, a bit of convention new this week.

And, of course, your feedback.

And of course some news rapidly squashing some unnerving rumors that were spread in the tabloids this week concerning Series 10. We give our reactions to both sides of the issue.

Plus, the return of our Doctor Who: Legacy Tip of the Week, with a new one (or perhaps just another subtle reminder) from Shaun on making sure you log in from day to day.
