The Science Behind Who
A stalwart of any science fiction is teleportation, which in the Doctor Who universe is referred to as Transmat. Teleportation or teletransportation is the theoretical transfer of matter or energy from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them. It is a common subject in science fiction literature, film, video games, and television.
Since 1993, teleportation has become a hot topic in quantum mechanics, namely state, energy and particle teleportation. According to science however it is not possible to teleport macroscopic objects such as human beings, but there may be teleportation in the microscopic world. Three possible kinds of teleportation in quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics have been proposed: state teleportation, energy teleportation, and particle teleportation.
In 1993, Bennett et al proposed that a quantum state of a particle could be teleported to another distant particle, but the two particles do not move at all. This is called state teleportation. There are a lot of following theoretical and experimental papers published. Researchers believe that quantum teleportation is the foundation of quantum calculation and quantum communication.
In 2008, M. Hotta proposed that it may be possible to teleport energy by exploiting quantum energy fluctuations of an entangled vacuum state of a quantum field. There are some papers published but no experimental verification.
In 2016, Y. Wei proposed that particles themselves could teleport from one place to another. This is called particle teleportation. With this concept, Superconductivity can be viewed as the teleportation of some electrons in the superconductor and superfluidity as the teleportation of some of the atoms in the cellular tube. Physicists are trying to verify this concept experimentally.
And sticking with the cons – Blogter Who was lucky enough to sit down with the totally awesome Rachel Stott - Stott is a huge Capaldi fan, so she is thrilled to draw his portrait for the comics – luckily, she says, “he has good eyebrows,” which makes him a good subject.

A to Z
Monster – Lady Adrasta
Episode – The Creature from the Pit
Planet of Origin – Chloris
Lady Adrasta was the ruler of Chloris, a lush jungle world where metal in all forms was a rare and prized commodity Adrasta gained power by holding the monopoly of the planet's metal. All of this metal came from the planet's only mine, the entrance to which was a pit that was guarded fiercely by Adrasta's men. She was aided by Karela and the Huntsman, the latter controlling Adrasta's Wolfweeds. These Wolfweeds had been grown in nurseries within the palace for her use.
A Touch of Class
Following the tragic events at the Prom, a devastated Ram isolates himself from the other three as he struggles with his new reality. Desperate to hold himself together on the football pitch, when he thinks he witnesses someone getting skinned alive he's convinced he's cracking up. But when Tanya, Charlie and April are all confronted with the same thing: a horrific, monstrous, skin-peeling dragon, they know that they're under attack. The gang must pull together to fight against the monster, and try to keep Coal Hill safe.
The Good Bits
The show isn't afraid to shy away from the gore. And that's quite satisfying.
The Bad Bits
The dragon - plane and simple the dragon was shameful.
The Most Whoniversal bit
Ok so we came here without a plan!
So the boy with one leg is feeling a bit rubbish after the prom and hasn't quite got his act together, and weirdly he's a bit phobic about blood. Weird right. But it's ok as he's got a coach with a tattoo that seemingly eats people. So that's ok. What could go wrong eh? I'm glad they addressed the whole why doesn't anyone remember - and I like that they totally skipped over it in favor of the bumhole of time. I do wonder if every episode we will get Ram covered in blood. I love that Miss Quill has a touch of the Sherlock about her. Ram has quite the speech although personally I wanted to see Quill kick ass. As long as she doesn't snog any more robots. Although the hint about the governors was an excellent snippet. I wonder if it means the Chestertons
