What was that sound? Why, yes, it was a million Doctor Who fans having an orgasm, thanks to a prequel to the The Day of the Doctor having just popped up on the iPlayer and YouTube. And isn’t it fun, laden with a gazillion continuity references and more. Without wishing to give the game away, not only do you get not one but two Doctors (and maybe not the ones you were expecting), there are references to the Time War, Brain of Morbius as well as the Big Finish audio plays.
What do you think of it?
I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
