    Is there any word on whether they have got licensing sorted out, so they can go past book #80 (i.e. Series 9/10 – stories 254 to 276, up to the 2017 Christmas Special)? Or even (in principle at least) Series 11 onwards with Jodie Whitaker?

      If you are a subscriber and got the latest two this month, then turn to page 85 in Volume 4 which is the William Hartnell volume and it reveals that 2017’s Thin ice is in volume 85

    ‘The King’s Demons’ is a fun little two parter I quite like.

    ‘The Five Doctors’ is easily my favourite story in this book. ‘Terminus’ however is one of my least favourite stories of all time! It’s not that it’s badly written, but the direction is flat, the incidental music is awful and tuneless, plus the costumes and hair styles looked dated back in 1983!

      It’s a pity ‘Terminus’ is so poor. As the other two stories in the ‘Black Guardian Trilogy’ are brilliant. ‘Mawdyn Undead’ is a classic, whilst ‘Enlightenment’ is an underrated gem.
