The Doctor’s New Coat

It’s back and it’s about time. Will we ever stop using that phrase in Paul McGann articles? Probably not, although this time we’re referring to his coat rather than the actor himself.

Introducing: Dragonfire

I reacted in the required way, did all the usual things, gasped, smiled, placed it pride of place on the bookshelf and told my wife it’s what I really wanted – but was it?
