But which name are you giving to the current run, and the one that follows next year? Series 7? Series 7a and b? Series 7 parts 1 and 2?
Ever since Steven Moffat took the big chair from Russell T Davies there has been some unusual approaches to naming the current run. We’ve long been advocates on Kasterborous of naming series sequentially from 1963 to date, and there really is no reason not to refer to Season 32.
After all, Season 7, back in 1970, was a key time for the show. Calling the current run Series 7 is almost begging for people to be confused.
That is, if you’re even aware of the traditional numbering system for episodes in the 1963-1989 era…
In this week’s newsletter, we check on the current state of Time Leech, recall a moment of fan insanity on Twitter and take a look at the biggest news stories in the past 7 days…

- X Copies of Time Leech Remain…
- From the Vortex: The Twittering Classes
- This Week’s PodKast
- Interview Exclusive – with a difference
Remarkably there remains just 10 issues of Time Leech! Following a personal appearance at a recent Dalek-themed event, Kasterborous editor Christian Cawley is on the cusp of selling all 100 copies – so if you want a copy you will need to get in quickly! Our Time Leech sales page should be your next destination (unless you’re planning on buying a signed-by-David-Tennant copy on eBay in November…)
In light of Steven Moffat’s resignation from the Twitter-sphere, we recall an occasion from mid-2011 when we found it necessary to comment on the fan reaction to a lack of scheduling (and, indeed, production) for Doctor Who Series 7. Ah, the benefit of hindsight! Read The Twittering Classes.
In this week’s show, Christian, Brian and James discuss The Power of Three, the works of Chris Chibnall and share a few thoughts about where Series 7a is heading…
It’s not an exclusive, but it’s an interview: Kasterborous podKaster James McLean recently chatted with the SocialBlend podcast about his forthcoming book project based on the Chris Carter TV series Millenium. Naturally, conversation also turned to Doctor Who, and you can check it out on the SocialBlend website.
