This week, we workshop the rules, rewards, and risks with developing a watch-along drinking game for any S11 episode. (This is what happens when we’re left without new content for too long.)
With all the best intentions (and the glowing skull of Eustace) we set out to fully enjoy this horror story from Series 15…but there are a few bumps along the way. Performances are enjoyable from both Baker and Jameson, and the supporting cast does a great job of punching up their roles to suit the story’s brooding horror. The script from Chris Boucher gives us a buffet-table of entertainment options to pick at. But is the meal satisfying once the dishes are cleared?
On a quiet Whovian news week, we test our memory of dialogue, trying to remember which character uttered a particular statement from the modern episodes. From phrases that could easily be a number of Doctor’s regenerations, to companions that seem to make very similar observations, Keir puts on his ill-fitting gamekeeper’s hat, and puts Jay and Haley to the test.
