Three Doctors, Time personified, and the undoing of pretty much every single character arc this season

Doc ducks where Tecteun stuck and tries her luck in triplicate, torn between being tormented by Smarm and Assured, reuniting with the TARDIS under Kate Stewart’s protection in Williamson’s tunnels, and with no possible justification also part-materialising on Karvanista’s ship, which she promptly rams into the Sontaran forcefield to infiltrate their new headquarters.

Yup, this final Flux event has to wrap up in an hour, so expect ever-increasing levels of tension, excitement, inattentive guards, accessible shortcuts, cosmic coinkydinks, hasty exits, cursory comeuppances, speed dates with destiny, heartstring stunts, bullet-point scripting, keyword banter, physical impossibilities, general fobbing-off of watchers, and genocides.

It’s the very last instalment of Doctor Who Flux. Listen to the whole boxset of reviews now!

Listener Minis will be added below shortly. /L

Here's what we think of N172 The Vanquishers (Flux, part 6)

We rate Doctor Who stories on a scale from 0.0 to 5.0. For context, very few are excellent enough to merit a 5.0 in our minds, and we'd take a 0.0 Doctor Who story over a lot of other, non-Whovian stuff out there.
