    When are these supposed to finish anyway?

      There are at least 80 issues, but that only goes up to Last Christmas. I wouldn’t be surprised if they could make it 90 with Series 9 and 10 (maybe 11 by the time they’re all out), perhaps 100 if they do spin-offs and titbits like Time Crash, etc.

      They answered someone on their Facebook page this week with ’90’ – which is either a typo / mistake, OR the first sign of an extension (which I’m pretty certain there will be).

      Unless i’m mistaken, ‘orphan’ stories including Shada, Night of the Doctor, K9 and Company and Time Crash etc. were planned to go in a mop-up volume within the original 80, so that will probably happen even if there were no extension. Whether it will still happen as issue 80 or be deferred to any ‘new end point’ remains to be seen.

    I loved the imperial guard daleks in that story, they looked the most sophisticated daleks in the whole series history. It sucks so bad we never saw any of those special weapons such as the sensor arm in any future dalek stories.
    The assault dalek should have been used in the “into the dalek” story, when the daleks were trying to melt the door leading to the troops. Using their guns were a little bit silly.

    ‘Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways’ is my favourite story in this book.

      Certainly and easily the best regeneration story of the new series since 2005. Unless ‘Twice Upon A Time’ can beat it…but I doubt it.
