How is Doctor Who Series 11 looking to you? It’s not perfect, but we’re pretty sure The Witchfinders could be the most memorable episode yet, if only for Alan Cumming’s audaciously fruity turn as King James I.

Christian Cawley, Gareth Kavanagh and James McLean takes turns at the dunking stool to find out who will be burned at the steak for heresy…

Fancy some Arachnids in the UK talk? Want to recall the Pting in The Tsuranga Conundrum? You’ve come to the right place as Christian Cawley and James McLean revisit the past two episodes of Doctor Who Series 11 and.

There’s even time to consider the state of the show at this halfway stage of the run.

Perhaps the theme tune ticked you off… or the odd roll call of future guest stars.
