A Friday Mini-Docback Brings You HornOrSilk’s Review Of The ‘Tomb Ship’ Big Finish Audio, Six 12th Doctor Comic Cover Variants, News Of A FIVE(ish) DOCTORS REBOOT Follow-Up, And More!!
…with a mini-Docback touching on a few cool points from WHOness this week, as well as another fine Big Finish Audio review from HornOrSilk. News on the WHO front has been a tad slow lately - in my experience it tends to ebb and flow considerably. One would imagine, however, that it'll pick up a bit as we careen towards S8’s premiere.
And, yes, we’ll have the weekly episodic Docbacks back as always when S8 ramps up. Whether or not they’ll be pre-reviewed as previously? Is anyone’s guess at this point…but stay tuned.
THE FIVE(ish) DOCTORS REBOOT SEQUEL COMING!?!?
Around DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Aniversary late last year, fifth Doctor Peter Davison mounted an amusing and impressive celebration of his own - THE FIVE(ish) DOCTORS REBOOT.
Per recent comments from eight incarnation Paul McGann, it now seems a sequel of some sorts is in the works.
According to reports from Eighth Doctor Paul McGann’s appearance at an event for Cambridge students, the Five(ish) Doctors onscreen reunion has already begun production.
…says THIS report via DenOfGeek. No other details were spilled.
Part of me is hugely excited by this - and can’t wait to see where they go with the conceit. Part of me is apprehensive, though - I’m not eager to see the warmth and joy of the progenitor diminished by a potentiality lesser follow-up.
Come what may, it’ll be a blast to discover what Davison & Co. have in store for us. More as we know more…
