Escape from the Planet of the Dead?

  CARMEN: Something is coming. Riding on the wind, and shining. DOCTOR: What is it? CARMEN: Death. Death is coming.   After stealing an ancient chalice from a London museum, Lady Christina de Souza slickly escapes by jumping on a #200 bus. Co-incidentally, the Doctor, who is tracking a worm-hole, boards just before the bus […]

The enduring power of the written word

When I am not watching old episodes of […]
