This week, we enjoy a boisterous, loud, daresay explosive hour-long adventure as our first and last piece of new televised Doctor Who content of the year. An all-too-familiar opponent makes a new appearance from a rather old point of origin, which leads to one of the Thirteenth Doctor’s best verbal exchanges of the season.

FEEDBACK:

Hey guys I love your show as always. There are a few thoughts I have and wanted to get your opinion on it as well.

I think Blackstar is actually Oliver And Felicity’s daughter. It makes sense, as she is super intelligent like Felicity and a great fighter like Oliver.

I wonder who is Emiko’s mother. My obvious thought is Ravager, considering her combat abilities and the history of Ravager and Robert, but I could be wrong. If that is the case, then why was Ravagers daughter never mentioned in season 2?

Thank you for your insight

David
