Whether you like it or not, we’re now halfway through this series of Doctor Who, and it’s time for the stakes to get higher; we now know who’s in the vault (or at least, who the Doctor thinks is in the vault), there’s a massive alien invasion waiting to strike, and oh yeah, the Doctor’s still blind. While you bite your nails waiting for next week’s instalment, here are our viewing notes with all the vaguely interesting things we noticed about this week’s episode.

So many spoilers, as we go looking for references in Doctor Who series 10, Oxygen...

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 10, up to and including Oxygen.

See related  Vib-Ribbon to return?

Space zombies, near-death experiences and what we can only hope is a temporary change for the Doctor… In Oxygen, writer Jamie Mathieson has quite literally played a blinder. And for the more observant among us, there were a handful of pop culture references and callbacks to earlier stories. Here’s our weekly round-up of the ones we noticed, along with the odd bit of wild speculation and things we just found interesting.

Oh, and look out for an extra article on Monday which takes a closer look at a few bits of graphic design this series - including the answer to a question which has been plaguing some of us for a couple of weeks now. »

Torchwood is getting a fifth series, in audio form

Big Finish's Torchwood: Aliens Among Us will follow on from Miracle Day. Russell T Davies is involved...

Torchwood: Miracle Day is getting a follow-up, but not in the way you would've originally expected. Instead of heading back to the small screen, Captain Jack Harkness' next adventure will take place in the audio drama medium, thanks to the fine folks at Big Finish. 

Russell T Davies is overseeing this new audio endeavour, which has been given the title Torchwood - Series 5: Aliens Among Us.

"In this series, Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood in Cardiff, home of the original Torchwood Three", the official synopsis tells us (via CultBox).

"But it’s in a very different Cardiff. Something terrible’s happened to the city. With every day getting darker, will Torchwood need to adopt a whole new approach?"

Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 3 Review – ‘Thin Ice’

28 April 2017 3:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 3: Thin Ice

Directed by: Bill Anderson

Written by: Sarah Dollard

Doctor – “I’m two-thousand years old and I have never had the time for the luxury of outrage.”

Doctor Who has been rather good at bringing a number of things to our screens – history, morality, ethical questioning, life and death and humour & sadness.  Through both Classic and NuWho these core elements course through the show and within this latest episode “Thin Ice” from Sarah Dollard, who previously wrote “Face the Raven” back in Series 9, each is brought to the screen.

At the end of “Smile” both Bill (Pearl Mackie) and the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) arrived in Regency England, though to be more specific the Tardis materialised upon a frozen River Thames within London.  With Bill erring the issue of the slave trade currently still existing, the Doctor manages to convince her to join him at the Frozen Fair. »

‘Class’ Review: ‘Doctor Who’ Spinoff Is Well Worth Powering Through Its Growing Pains

14 April 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

An exchange between two of the teen protagonists in BBC America’s “Doctor Who” spinoff “Class” takes place a little over halfway through the season and exemplifies some of the series’ unique strengths:

Ram, trying to explain his Sikh religion: “We believe the important thing in your life is to do good action. But if you do the good action, somewhere in the process there’s got to be God, even if you don’t have faith or believe that there’s some dude out there looking after you. Isn’t doing a good thing, one human to another, the closest we’re going to get to God?”

April: “And what about the bad things we do, one human to another?”

It’s the type of philosophical discussion that one might have in quieter contemplative moments, but since this is the world of “Doctor Who,” it instead occurs on a shadowy alien world, »

‘Doctor Who’ is Getting an Openly Gay Companion

3 April 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In other news, why is this news?

In the past month or so, we’ve heard about Power Rangers’ Trini the Yellow Ranger, the “first queer big screen superhero”, and Disney’s first “exclusively gay moment” (verdict is still out on what that even means) in the live-action Beauty and the Beast remake. Last week Doctor Who joined the party by announcing that the Twelfth Doctor’s latest companion, Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), is openly gay — a first for the series.

The new season of Doctor Who, which will premiere on April 15, will be the tenth since the show was revived in 2005 under head writer and executive producer Russell T. Davies and the thirty-sixth season overall. This season will notably be the last for current showrunner Steven Moffat.

Crowdfund This: Blood Shed, Evil & Laughs & Buildings & Blood

14 March 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

We at ScreenAnarchy, and I expect many of our readers, are big fans of James Moran, screenwriter of Severance, Cockneys vs Zombies, Tower Block, and episodes of Doctor Who and Torchwood. He's also directed some fantastic shorts, such as Crazy for You and Ghosting. Now, he is joining forces with his equally talented partner Cat Davies (writer/director of shorts Keen-Wah and Connie), and they are bringing us a new horror-comedy, Blood Shed! Jack loves a bargain. And he loves sheds. When he buys suspiciously cheap second-hand parts online to build his very own dream shed, he and long-suffering wife Helen find they’ve got more than they bargained for: a killer shed with an appetite for blood. As the body count rises, and the shed’s ferocious...
