“Rose went out of its way to dazzle mainstream and casual viewers – thatʼs the sort of viewers who would normally be found watching Celebrity Goat-Defrauding On Ice or wistful nostalgic costume dramas set in either the 1960s or 1860s (it doesnʼt seem to matter), and wouldnʼt know The Caves Of Androzani if it came up and walloped them in the face with a Doctor Who Dymo Labeller – and it dazzled them beyond anyoneʼs expectations.

Expect Utopia-praising, Slitheen-bashing, Tate-defending and, erm, Ritz Cheese Sandwich-mentioning by the Medusa Cascade-ful.
