Doctor Who fans are full of questions. Plus water. Water and questions. And varying degrees of bile. Only one of these is important for the article you have clicked on, which is probably this one for now, and it’s the questions one.

It would take too long to examine all the queries fandom has (they vary from ‘How come Germany gets the extended cut of Silver Nemesis?’ to ‘Who wants to watch Babylon 5 with me lads?’), and so we have stuck to questions that the Capaldi era raised but failed to answer. This writer, it should be noted, is fallible and may not list all the questions that our readers may have. Ameliorate

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.

Doctor Who series 9: geeky spots in The Witch's Familiar

Spoilers! Here are our ultra-nerdy viewing notes and geeky spots from Doctor Who series 9's The Witch's Familiar...

The Witch’s Familiar may have been less frantic than The Magician’s Apprentice, but it contained just as many back-references and kisses to the past - in addition to the ones documented in last week’s article. So here are all the geeky things we were able to notice in this week’s episode…

As ever, let us know in the comments if we missed any. The article starts once you scroll past Daphne The Spoiler Squirrel...

Callbacks of the Daleks

This isn’t the first time the Doctor has wielded a Dalek gunstick. Having narrated every Dalek story to date for Davros in 1975’s Genesis Of The Daleks, the fourth Doctor then destroys the recording using a Dalek gun. Dalek gunsticks were also wielded by the Dalek-humans in David Tennant Story Evolution Of The Daleks.

"I am The Master!": Who is Doctor Who's greatest nemesis?

Missy -> Mistress -> Master. We should've really seen it coming, and to be fair, some of us did.

He's a notorious insatiable fibber, that Steven Moffat, so as soon as Doctor Who's head writer, executive producer and chief keeper of secrets declares an element from the show's past "over" and "done", it's a fair bet that said element will be rearing its head sometime soon.

Just so, Michelle Gomez was unveiled as the ninth actor to play the maniac Time Lord on Saturday night, and the first ever female to take on the part - a game-changing moment in Doctor Who history.

But if you're a series newcomer with no clue who this 'Master' is - or you're only familiar with depictions of the character post-2005 - then Digital Spy has assembled all of the pertinent information you'll need before this week's 'Death in Heaven'.

News: Alternative TV Movie Intro

  • Kasterborous
Here's a rarity - an alternative version of the intro voiceover to the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie starring Paul McGann, Daphne Ashbrook and Eric Roberts. Whereas the version we all know and love (?) is provided by Paul McGann ("It was on the planet Skaro that my old enemy the Master was finally put on trial...") the version seen here features a different soundtrack. Here, we see for the first time how Gordon Tipple's voiceover as the Master would have sounded - and even get a brief...
