Isn't one episode of Doctor Who more than enough? ;-)

Seriously, for the ephemera, How a Mosquito Operates

Isn’t one episode of Doctor Who more than enough?

For me it is. I like the idea of the series, the premise, but not the actual programme. Every once in a while I watch an episode to see if it’s improved - and I do think Capaldi’s better than other recent incarnations - but it’s basically badly written panto with Guardianista tendencies. And the show has been strangled by its own continuity. There’s no sense of mystery. After fifty years, it needs a long rest. Or a hard reboot.

From there it's fairly easy to get to this;

...which of course is relevant.
