Whilst the new story, featuring Matt Smith, is obviously welcomed, you have to wonder why they are giving away stories like 'Slipback', and the odd 'Exploration Earth'. Is the idea to put people off buying audio dramas? Why don't they give away some good stories instead of these left-over oddities?
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
