Lie of the Land - WNAR #112

Welcome to Who New and review, a podcast from the Galactic Network

Earth has been invaded and Bill is living alone, an isolated figure surviving in occupied Britain. The Doctor is imprisoned and appears to be on the side of the enemy, flooding the airwaves with fake news. Bill and Nardole must embark on a deadly mission to rescue the Doctor and lead the resistance against the new regime, whatever the cost.
 

The Good BitsEvil fake news Doctor was genuinely creepy

The Bad BitThe fake regeneration - lame

The whoniversal bitSome of the references were nice – especially the Magpie Electronics made me whoop a little.

I really like The Lie Of The Land, from the pen of Toby Whithouse, up to the fake regeneration. Up until then, there’s certainly lots to enjoy. Peter Capaldi’s quite creepy, different take on the Doctor, when we’re given the impression that he’s been brainwashed by the Monks is a lot of fun. We get less Nardole, although not for the first time, Matt Lucas wrings plenty out of the little screen time he gets. We get a true pervading sense of doom is built.
