After last week's disappointment, I'm thrilled that 'Demons of the Punjab' was a delight. Yes, the scifi element felt to me a little forced, but it did have its good points too!

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT DOCTOR WHO
- Doctor Who first aired in the UK on 23rd November 1963. The current series premiered on 26th March 2005.
- Thirteen Doctors to date (and John Hurt as the War Doctor): William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christoher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi, and Jodie Whittaker.
- The Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. The Time Lords fought the daleks (from planet Skaro) in the Last Great Time War. He has since then bumped into the daleks, including their leader Davros, on several occasions - they just cannot be vanquished! (But isn't Dalek Sec awfully cute?)
- It's not just the daleks that the Doctor meets on his travels. He flies around in his police public call box ("The angels have the phonebox," remember!), better known as the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), and always seems to come face to face with creatures that are out to cause trouble. Since there are too many to name, I will recommend the episodes with my personal favourite creatures, including being such as the sycorax, the slitheen, the sontaran, the time zombies, the vashta nerada, the carrionites, and the gelth.
- The Doctor has teamed up with some aliens too (excluding himself, of course - his kind is not alien to him!). K9 is a firm favourite of many (who wouldn't want to travel with a robot dog?), and we can't forget about Captain Jack Harkness too, played by the very perfect John Barrowman.
- Companions from the current series include Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), Bill (Pearl Mackie), and Nardole (Matt Lucas).
- The series includes story arcs, such as 'Bad Wolf', Harold Saxon/The Master, and Amy Pond was 'the girl who waited', which in itself opened up a whole tangled web. Then there was 'the impossible girl' with Clara 'Oswin' Oswald, and her subsequent encounters with Ashildr/Me (Maisie Williams) - anybody else's head spin a little bit trying to keep up with that one?
- Then there's River Song (Alex Kingston). I love River. I don't care how complex and confusing her timeline can be since it runs in reverse to the Doctor's. I love her. Yes I do.
- Spinoffs include Torchwood (Eve Myles is love) and the Sarah Jane Adventures (starring Elisabeth Sladen), and soon we'll have Class too. Oh, and there was Doctor Who Confidential (still sad about the loss of that one!) and Totally Doctor Who.
- Series directors include, among others, Graeme Harper, Euros Lyn, Douglas Mackinnon, and James Strong.
- Series writers include Sydney Newman, Steven Moffat, Russel T. Davies, Terry Nation, Gerry Davis, Kit Pedlar, and Robert Holmes.
- Series producers include Moffat, Davies, Julie Gardner, Phil Collinson, and Chris Chibnall.
- Music: Murray Gold.
- Cinematographers include Ernest Vincze, Rory Taylor, and Stephan Pehrsson.
