The Chibnall Era is swiftly coming to an end, and now we know who's going to be taking over...the show, at least. Russell T Davies is coming back, and we're excited here at the Nerva Beacon! We also take a look at 1985's Vengeance on Varos, a Sixth Doctor adventure that ultimately got the show into hot water...well, hot acid, at the very least.
