Immediately, the electric cable shot out, lashing towards her, but Louie dived at his aunt and brought her crashing to the ground with his best rugby tackle. The lethal-looking cable sliced through the space where she had stood less than a second before..."

Miscellanious News

Tid-Bits... has The name of The Doctor by SOIL. The Doctor’s name, in high Gallifreyan.

Review's Roundup...

TARDIS Eruditorum has A Trickster Or a Warrior (The Ribos Operation), To Fight a Bigger War (The Pirate Planet) and Into Submission With My Charm (The Stones of Blood).

The Edwardian Adventurer has Doctor Who Story Number 046 – The Invasion. After dodging a missile, The TARDIS materializes in a compound owned by International Electromatics, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer. The Doctor decides it is time to visit Professor Travers, but soon becoming involved in a military investigation into the operations of Industrial Electromatics and its mysterious owner Tobias Vaughn....

Doctor Who News - Reviews has Doctor Who: Series 6 Soundtrack. One of the results of 2011’s split-season of Doctor Who was that there were double the number of “event” episodes – that is, season-openers and season finales. Murray Gold draws attention to this in his liner notes: “There were four musically challenging stories (first and last episodes always need a certain amount of extra impact).” I for one am very glad that Murray rose to this challenge wholeheartedly, because it has led to an outstanding album packed with a broad range of moods and genres (yet still following a single story arc), and one that will be a favourite of mine for a long time....

Siskoid's Blog of Geekery has 29: The Bride of Sacrifice. In response to the previous episode's ultimatum, Barbara does the unexpected and saves Ian by holding a knife to Tlotoxl's throat. Unexpected for the Aztecs who were expecting a miracle, and even more unexpected for the TARDISeers and the audience, because Barbara has truly gone native. Though she's trying to end their barbarity, she's actually becoming more like them....

TEGAN has Dr. Who (The Early Years) - Part 57 "The King's Demons". The Doctor is finally free of the Black Guardian trying to have him killed and Turlough is relieved. But when the Tardis arrives in the year 1215, Tegan wonders if it's another Black Guardian trap. The Doctor assures her it isn't. What is odd though, is the Tardis arrives in the middle of a joust, witnessed by all. In attendance is King John, who warmly welcomes the Tardis crew, calling them his demons. He has them sit with him during the rest of the joust. The Doctor takes it in stride, but assumes something is wrong....
