Witch's brew

Lovely but somewhat baffling Hallowe’en Google Doodle. And Easter Eggs instead of candy.

As noted before, Doctor Who has never quite done a Hallowe’en special. Too close to the anniversary, and the show prefers to spring horror stories on its viewers without warning....

But it’s had plenty of witches over the years. Good and evil, human and alien, genuine believers and tricksters. Wizards too, possibly including the Seventh Doctor, and warlocks and sorcerers. And plenty of people learning secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know, despite the show’s overall moral that knowing is better than not.
