In this week’s episode we finally get to review the last episode of the season for Doctor Who, The Name of the Doctor. We’ll talk about the epic ending to Series 7b.
But first, step away from the world of Doctor Who and review the new film, Star Trek Into Darkness. Mind the spoiler above if you haven’t seen it. Then we take a look at the Star Trek/Doctor Who comic crossover, Assimilation 2.
Finalizing the schedule for this next chunk still took some doing, so without further ado…

Also, some spoiler cautions for our fans as we talk about the huge blunder that was made with preorder copies of Series 7B in Blu ray.
