The Doctor Who TARDISblend 64: The Crimson Horror
  |  

The latest Doctor Who begins in Victorian Yorkshire, as a mysterious plot is underway by the strangely obsessed Winifried Gillyflower (Diana Rigg) that many be connected to odd deaths that have become known as The Crimson Horror. Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart), and Strax (Dan Starkey) are called upon to investigate the mystery, only to find that the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) are somehow involved.

During TARDISblend 64, we take a look at what is probably the first "split plot" for Doctor Who, with the first half being Doctor-Lite, and the other not so much. We also discuss the interesting presentation of the flashback sequences in this episode, and begin highlighting some of the references to Classic Doctor Who through this season.

Later, we continue talking some of the strange rumors associated with the 50th Anniversary, including one spoilerific rumor that if it becomes true, Greg says he will continue the TARDISblend after the 50th Anniversary!

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

While “A Good Man Goes to War” poses many of these unanswered questions, there’s also a surprising amount of clarity. Before we dive into some of these queries, let’s take a look at the bulk of the episode.
