Doctor Who Fans and Change- A Ramble

I really wish I didn’t have to write this article. Or, if I did write this article, it would have the same title yet be constructed and feature totally different aspects of the fandom. I’m aware this is an incredibly sensitive topic in the Doctor Who fandom at the moment; and what better way to come back after a few weeks off, than with my hot take?

Why I Love Rufus Hound’s Monk

To date, we’ve had three stories from Big Finish where Rufus Hound plays the Time Lord known as the Meddling Monk, or just the Monk. We’ve had The Black HoleThe Blame Game and The Side of The Angels. In June, we’ll be getting a Fourth Doctor Short Trip entitled How To Win Planets And Influence People, which I can’t wait for. Why? Because we’re getting more of Hound’s Monk! I’ve reviewed two stories featuring this incarnation of the meddling Time Lord, and they’ve both received perfect scores (in fact The Side of The Angels scored better than perfect) but why is this?

The Future Of Big Finish’s Monthly Range

Big Finish

Big Finish. Chances are, if you read my site, you at least know of Big Finish; they’re the purveyors of fine audio drama such as Doctor Who. To date, Big Finish has got dozens of ranges under their Doctor Who umbrella; the most prominent being their Monthly Range (also known as the Main Range).

Now, I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and this is how I think it would work best.

How Should The Twelfth Doctor Regenerate?

12-regeneration

Here are a few ideas as to what should be the cause of the Twelfth Doctor’s demise…

161 Sleeps To Go!

Time
We’re over half way through the year, and, at the time of writing this, there’s 161 sleeps until Christmas Day, meaning 161 sleeps until Doctor Who (We assume it’s being shown on Christmas Day, because if not, I say we riot) and I have to say that I’m proud of the Doctor Who fanbase for keeping moderately sane in this year long ‘hiatus’. If you’re like me, you’re probably having withdrawal symptoms round about now, so I thought I’d give you my Top 10 Classic Episodes, Top 10 New-Who Episodes, Top 10 Big Finish stories and Top 10 Spin-Offs to try and help you pass some time.
