Chris Chibnall’s New Doctor Who Short Story is a Deeper Glimpse Into Regeneration

The circumstances of the Thirteenth Doctor’s regeneration were particularly momentous because while she, like most Doctors before her, was able to regenerate just fine, moments later she was flung out of her ship above the Earth and left to fall to the planet’s surface as her TARDIS both exploded and dematerialised—“dematerialexploding” – before her eyes. This was not an ideal situation. Read More >>

Doctor Who Just Flipped Its Entire Script

Sunday night’s Doctor Who was meant to be, like much of season 12 so far, a reminder of its more familiar self of the past few years in the wake of last season’s bold experiments with the tone and scope of the show.
