Episode 326 – Flaming Penguin

It’s here! It’s finally arrived. We survived the “wilderness year”, (okay, yes we got an episode at Christmas, and yes it’s not fair to call it a wilderness year because that cheapens the period of drought from 1989 until 2005), but Doctor Who is finally back on our television screens!

This, our Easter Saturday episode covers the Doctor and Nardole and the introduction of new companion Bill in The Pilot.

We offer our opinions on the story, and be aware, this is a SPOILER FILLED EPISODE of the podcast.

Also some recent news and speculation.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

Doctor Who Comics Crossover Event for Summer!

Today Titan comics announced a massive crossover even for Doctor Who Comics Day celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen!

The 5 issue bi-weekly adventure is titled ‘Supremacy of the Cybermen’ and stars the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), and Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), and their comic companions – Gabby, Cindy, Alice, Rose (Billie Piper) and Captain Jack (John Barrowman)!

Here’s how Titan comics describe the plot:

“Exiled from Gallifrey at the very end of time, Rassilon, fallen leader of the Time Lords, has been captured by the last of the Cybermen. Now, the Cybermen have access to time travel. With it, every defeat becomes a victory. Every foe is now dead — or Cyberized.”

Written by George Mann & Cavan Scott with art by Alessandro Vitti the first issue drops Wednesday, July 6th, just ahead of Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday July 9th and will feature 5 variant covers.

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the show’s iconic cyborgs, the Cybermen. The Cybermen first appeared in the story ‘The Tenth Planet’ in 1966, and have been featured in Doctor Who numerous times since, including being brought back in the “new series” in the 2006 two-part, ‘Rise of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Age of Steel.’
