There’s a moment in “Kerblam!” where Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor does something she’s never done before, but her past selves have. She barges into a scene and demands answers, lest the villain of the week face her wrath.

In little over a year, we’ll be seeing the third and final chapter of Star Wars’ latest trilogy, Episode IX, hit cinemas. Unsurprisingly, we barely know a thing about it yet, other than it exists and some people we know and love are in it. But that just gives us more reason to make a list of hopes about what we’ll see when the JJ. Abrams-directed film drops. Read More >>

Stan Lee’s Spider-Man PS4 Cameo Is So Quintessentially Stan Lee

Stan Lee loved a good cameo. The legendary comics icon, who died yesterday at 95, got to sneak into so many movies based on heroes he’d helped bring to life over the past two decades – and even into some based on ones he didn’t. But maybe the one that best encapsulates Stan Lee as a creative is one of his most recent. Read More >>

Yaz Finally Steps Into the Spotlight for a Poignant Doctor Who

One of the many changes brought to Doctor Who this year is more companions than a dimensionally transcendental phone box knows what to do with. Much of the season so far has left one new traveller – Mandip Gill’s Yasmin Khan – taking a backseat. But “Demons of the Punjab” finally let her shine. Read More >>

The Most Important Line in Star Wars Is an Ode to the Peril of Living in the Past

“May the Force be with you.” “No, I am your father.” “It’s a trap!” Star Wars is full of iconic notable quotables. But what has become my favourite line in the entire saga is a line from The Last Jedi that speaks to a wider existential debate about where the franchise is at right now: “Let the past die.

Despite being a programme about change, there’s always a certain amount of trepidation in Doctor Who when any amount of it happens, whether it’s just a new monster or a whole new Doctor.
