There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

Just when being a Doctor Who fan couldn’t get any better, Big Finish takes it up another notch!

Now…which classic villains do you think Moffat/Capaldi will bring back this year to haunt us? Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Sillurians. Who’s next?

We all know by now. No need to visit the spoiler thread, the major series arc is immensely tied up in the robotic crab from Paradise Towers returning. In fact, both the TARDIS and Clara were actually the crab the whole time!

Can we just make Peter Capaldi the new showrunner? It'd be like a Player/Manager in US batball.

Alternatively, give it to Colin! He's written stories before and I'm fairly certain that he at the very least knows what not to do.

The corrections on that article are embarrassingly goony.
