Okay, that might seem like a bleak sort of title for a Doctor Who fan. What is there to be hopeful about? It’s going to be great. Of course it’s going to be great.
However, some of that may just be the end of Series 7 talking. The last episode – followed by the 50th Anniversary Special and the Christmas Special – I have come to call the “of the Doctor” trilogy: The Name of the Doctor, The Day of the Doctor, and The Time of the Doctor.

We have been waiting and waiting for the Doctor Who season finale and now it could all be ruined in 160 characters or less.
So what does this mean for those of us without the DVD? What would we do if we were one of the ones who received the DVD? And what happened to make this travesty a reality? Continue reading
