Time for Concern

I watched the second of this year’s Doctor Who Specials; darker and scarier than the one at Easter. I was left with a fear that I cannot vanquish, but not because of the events of the story. After the episode we were shown a trailer for the forthcoming Christmas episode and given its title; “The End of Time”. The classic series does not have a good record with stories that include the word “time”; four of the seven stories that do are among the very worse. I give you “Time Monster”, “Timeflight”, “Timelash”, and “Time and the Rani”. The opening promise of “Invasion of Time” is dealt a terrible blow by the last two episodes, so only “The Time Meddler”, and “The Time Warrior” emerge unscathed from the show’s curse of time titles. I hope that the Christmas episode goes with the minority
