And today an animated Google Doodle for the World Cup. I won’t pretend interest here.
Of course, as I may have previously suggested, a big sporting event could be the basis for an adventure. The Fourth Doctor nearly had to save us from the Krikkitmen. The Eighth Doctor had to deal with alien team managers (while wearing a fez!) in a Gareth Roberts story in DWM.
And consider having sporty aliens turn up and demand we take part in the Known Worlds Cup. (Like the Space Olympics, it’s more trouble than it sounds.) A twist on the classic represent-your-planet threat. Superman does it, why not the Doctor? He can be a first eleven all by himself.
