Breaking news! Details about the upcoming Series 11 of Doctor Who were announced by the BBC not long after our regular episode was released, so the Three Who Rule are here to report (but, really, mostly speculate) about the casting announcements and other details that were released regarding Jodie Whittaker’s first season as Doctor Who!

There’s nothing Doctor Who-ish on TV until Christmas…but there is an hour with debonair man of the 1970s, Jon Pertwee, who graces the BBC iPlayer with an hour of his many charms in the imaginatively named “An Hour with Jon Pertwee!” There’s also movement afoot in things game, textual and action dolly, with Big Finish going (even more) digital, A Parliament worth of Dalek Dollies and possibly the premature end of LEGO Dimensions. Our Second Chances this week also marks the end of the Monk Trilogy as Drew Meyer joins us to look at “The Lie of the Land!”

We have a long time to wait for new Who (not counting Peter Capaldi’s swan song this Christmas) but already rumors are swirling about how incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall will give us his vision of the good Doctor. In the meantime, we have DVDs headed our way along with an animated version of Shada, the red-headed stepchild of not-quite-lost classic Who stories. And this week’s Second Chances features author and Reality Bomb podcaster Graeme Burk, with his (and our) look at…”The Pyramid at the End of the World”!

Happy Thanksgiving (in Canada)! This week, we have new from New York Comic Con, as one Peter Capaldi charmed the good folk of the Big Apple for one final time as Doctor Who, plus we have news of cinematic screenings of “Twice Upon A Time”, explosive details about Danny Hargreaves’ future and the new season of Doctor Who, and and AND Chip, our friend from This Week in Time Travel and Two-Minute Time Lord, joins us for a look at the start of the Monk Trilogy (such as it was) and all the japery and indeed Papery in…”Extremis!”

Warren returns to the fold this week, to examine both various dribs and drabs of Doctor Who news and to debate amongst the Three Who Rule as to the worth of the new Star Trek: Discovery series. What would a podcast between three nerds be without spurious Trek talk, you ask? Well, it would be a podcast with pop culture reporter Edie Nugent taking a look at Series 10’s space-set not-zombie nail-biter, “Oxygen,” in our Second Chances series!
