The countdown is on with one week to a new Doctor and a new era, and the media frenzy continues unabated with Jodie Whittaker playing an entirely non-canon Theremin on the Graham Norton Show, talking on BBC Radio6, giving us the first(ish) glimpse at her Doctor with a 53 second clip, and frankly a staggering amount of news that can’t possibly be summed up with these pithy remarks. We also have a quick visit from Paul Cornell to discuss his last-ever Doctor Who week available now in a new Titan Comics Humble Bundle, and last week’s Series 11 panel from Edmonton Expo, with Earp Chirpers and Whovians Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra, Variant Edmonton comic book purveyor (and Doctor Whoocher) Danica LeBlanc…and Steven.

rfs550With New York Comic-Con upon us, the Doctor Who news is (at last) coming fast and furious with two(!) trailers for Class out in the wild and a panel featuring Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas, Brian Minchin and new companion Pearl Mackie at the con teasing what’s in store for the Christmas special and beyond! And with Chris off in the UK foraging for beer and scotch eggs, it was up to friend of the show Chip Sudderth to ably assume the third chair to cogitate upon matters Who with the Two Who Rule. We also have a report from Kim and Sage of Head Over Feels direct from NYCC! It’s a cornucopia of news on this, the most Canadian of Thanksgivings.

rfs543Rumours, mumblesuch and nonsense dominated the news week, from Power of the Daleks teases that weren’t to the chance (slim to in actual fact…none) that Doctor Who would shoot soon in Warren’s own homestead of Vancouver. All poppycock! But you can count on the veracity and verisimilitude of the Three Who Rule as they tackle another exciting set of…Fluid Links!
