In the final week before Season 10 of Doctor Who begins, we take a look the various cult books which have been arriving at The Whoseum for our delectation. This leads to much wistful sighing over memories over comics from the 1970s, especially 2000AD. We also look at some promising hints about Pearl Mackie’s companion character.

Then the Diddly Dum Whoseum hosts its first ever game of Just a Minute.
