Revolution Of The Daleks

New Year’s Day!

New Daleks...

Sunday adventure hook: The Water Horse

To mark St. Andrew’s Day tomorrow:

The Water Horse

There are legends of mystical horses and other animals that will lead people astray in many cultures, such as the Kelpies in Scotland, that if mounted will take their riders to the water to drown. But while the cautionary nature of avoiding lonely water is well acknowledged, nobody has seen such a creature.

Until recently.

“Says something about us as a people that we have a myth about how you should look a gift horse in the mouth.”

Black Friday

How do you deal with an outbreak of rage in the middle of a flash sale? How do you even tell who has it?

“Everything. Must. Go.”

Doctor Who Comic

Doctor Who Comic, a new series from Titan, launching on the anniversary-adjacent Doctor Who Comics Day. DWM began as Doctor Who Weekly, so the simple title is new. And on the same day, a Time Lord Victorious series as well.

Sunday adventure hook: The Turret

In honour of the beginning of DALEKS!:

The Turret

One of the most important battles of Genghis Khan’s war with the Jin Dynasty, seemingly about to be lost due to a man-sized armoured turret armed with some kind of flame weapon.

Why is a Dalek trying to change history?

“This city will create such glorious destruction if it prospers. I would see that!”
“So you’re derailing history for an entire continent because you like fireworks?”

Time Lord Victorious Day One

The phrase first appeared in The Waters Of Mars, eleven years ago today.

Season 13

2021. Eight episodes. My hope is that this short season, understandable in the current circumstances, leads to it being All Killer No Filler.

It’s a baby.

It’s a Time Lord.

“Do they normally burp regeneration energy?”
