Galaxy Forum

Your views on everything going on in the hectic world of Doctor Who…

After a one-issue absence,Galaxy Forum is back! Let`s begin with your thoughts on the most recent episode; The Return of Doctor Mysterio…

A SUPER SPECIAL?

JAMES SLOAN EMAIL

I’m a comic fan and was not sure how the latest Christmas Special would play out. But clearly writer Steven Moffat is also a comic fan, as the episode was a fun nod to all the traits of the traditional superhero: the powers, the secret identity…

Peter Capaldi was on fine form as the Doctor cunning, manic and almost reckless. He had great people to play against. Justin Chatwin as Grant had the whole everyman/superhero thing down pat and Charity Wakefield as Lucy was spot on channelling her inner Lois Lane.

As for Matt Lucas: at face value, Nardole was a comic turn… and yet there were times when he appeared to be much more. Certainly, he seems to be the most equal companion in a long time, what with the Doctor trusting him to fly the TARDIS and go on errands. There is clearly more to him than meets the eye…

PAUL REYNARD EMAIL

It was such a festive treat to have a sushi-fed Peter Capaldi bounding onto our seasonal screens! With the action very much kept in America, there was a much more epic feel to the story. The idiosyncratic Nardole was a whimsical foil for the good Doctor. Strange how he displayed a more serious, possibly sinister, side to his character towards the end of the story

Would the Doctor be even more powerful here if he were frightened of Dr Sim?
