    That magazine cover with Ncuti Gatwa on it looks like if you asked a Gen AI to create a magazine cover with Ncuti Gatwa on it. Like, back off the Photoshop tweaks a bit the guy doesn’t need it.

        This kind of material feels genuinely aimed at the segment of the audience longing for dodgy CGI à la 2007 😆

      I really, really like Ncuti Gatwa. I think he’s a fantastic actor and I really hope he’s going to be huge…but I couldn’t fucking stomach how terrible and awkward the S1 Ep1 opener was…like, holy shit was it bad.

      We had to turn it off about 8 mm minutes in…and that was after weeks of waiting excitedly to see it.

        Yeah the opening 2-3 episodes reminded me of the movie, but it got better

    Sounds like it was all ancillary stuff, too. Various other lives and incarnations.

    Course it doesn’t mean much until we see the actual episode.

      Yeah, at the end of the day it’s a standard deleted scene - the information within it was conveyed just as easily by the Doctor explaining the situation to UNIT.

    This is heart-shattering because I would do anything to see the goofy bug people from The Web Planet make a return
