With no new Doctor Who until New Year’s Day in the form of “Resolution”, how will the Three Who Rule cope with their withdrawal pangs? Why, by celebrating the arrival of the Number of the Beast, Episode 666, with a commentary for the Series 2 episodes “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”, two of the most devil-centric episodes ever! (And also two of the best Doctor Who episodes ever!) Yes, we’re aware of the Daemons pedants, move along. Plus we have Series 11 Blu-Ray news, Series 11 soundtrack info, some tat discussion, and possibly even scarier than ol’ Scratchman himself, stats!

Director James Strong faces the eagle eye of the Miniscope this week, with a look at classics like “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”, not-so classics (but not his fault!) like “Daleks in Manhattan” and “Evolution of the Daleks”, and romps big and small like “Voyage of the Damned”, “Partners in Crime”, and “Planet of the Dead”. Plus news of “Genesis of the Daleks” cinema screenings (well, one) at the BFI, Twitch streaming Classic Who, Bell Media cancelling Innerspace like a bunch of jerks, and more!
