Turns out the new Doctor Who companion Varada Sethu will not replace the 'current' one but be in addition to her in the 2025 series. And I say 'current' in quotes because that 2024 series also still has to start for real (in May).

They say she played previously in Hard Sun, which I saw six years ago, so now I've got to try to remember what character that was.

Her showreel is good though. Also helped me remember who she was in Hard Sun. I liked her, I quoted her character back when I was still doing that on Tumblr (now on @randomlinesfromtvandfilm ):

She was also in Doctor Foster in a small role, but I remember liking that one.



Today's Doctor Who took a while to get interesting, then it really did. Don't be put off by the bad cgi, though.

found it pretty enjoyable. I think that people are spoiled with a Next Great Thing every week... Sometimes what you need a good old simple plot well developed


If like me you use an app like Series Guide to track the tv episodes you've watched and which you still have to catch, you may like to know that the people at tmdb, trakt, etc, unlike imdb, are listing the Doctor Who series that started today as a new show rather than series 14 of the 'original reboot': https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/239770 . So you have to add a new show to track, then find today's episode under specials (because they count next year's series 15 as number 1).

No spoilers but I really liked this episode.

Today is the day of the new Doctor Who, this evening on BBC1.

And later this evening Doctor Who: Unleased will also be on BBC1, for those who are blocked from watching BBC3 where I believe it is first shown. This is the behind the scenes thing.


What's with the suggestion that the new Doctor Who will not be on broadcast television but only streaming? The official account makes it sound that way, mentioning only iPlayer and Disney+. Will this be the end of my collection?

They've edited all their posts now to include BBC1, phew.

This is the trailer for three Doctor Who episodes that will be released in or around November 2023. So frustrating that still no date is mentioned, I'm sure I'm going to totally miss it when it finally appears on tv and they announce the release date five seconds before.

it’s either going to start on the 23rd November, or finish on it, or be shown around that weekend.

I’m sure the date will be announced in advance. Do you remember the “Save The Day” campaign for the 50th anniversary?

in reply to Gidi Kroon

not sure if the 3 episodes will be shown on consecutive days or weeks, that’s the only mystery at the moment
