    This has been an interesting and thought provoking arc.

    Tansy mentioned that Americans don’t really understand why the casting of Beryl Reid as a kick-arse Space Captain was such unusual casting. This is a parallel casting for you – Betty White as a Ripley in Alien

    Beryl Reid played the part of Connie Sacks in the BBC version of John Le Carrie’s Tinker, Tailor, Solider.
    This starred Alec Guinness as Smiley Patrick Stewart played his opponent Karla.

    she was a very good actress.

  3. Why do people keep saying these things about the companions (or “friends” as Chibnall prefers)? I mean about there being a lot of people “in the Tardis”? I didn’t see one single shot of a Tardis, interior or exterior, throughout that entire trailer. I’m thinking that series 11 is going to be a callback to seasons 7 and 8. And while I’m perfectly okay with that as a concept, I don’t feel good about making the first female Doctor have to do the show with those kinds of restrictions. But maybe I’m just being reactionary. Anyway, not the point. I think if we see the Tardis at all this year, it won’t be until the final episode, maybe not even until the Christmas special.
