This week, most of us are delighted to be served a delicious meal of lobsters, clams, and squid, brains in white sauce, two whole suckling pigs, a ham with figs, eight steaks, and Robert Holmes at his most cynical. Welcome back, Pat, for The Two Doctors.

Fans of tropes tropes tropes tropes tropes tropes will enjoy the way that Anita hints flamboyantly at the Final Girl trope. Fans of tropes generally will definitely enjoy TV Tropes, the Internet’s repository of all of the world’s tropes, apart from Word Peril and the Exposition Coma, obviously.

Richard Marsden has recently released a second edition of his biography of Doctor Who producer John Nathan-Turner. Now called Totally Tasteless: The Life of John Nathan-Turner, it includes a new chapter chronicling the drama that accompanied the first edition’s release.
