Doctor Who Flux #2 liveblogging

-Oooh a big spooky floating house! What’s that doing there?

-Ah, shade at Florence Nightingale, based on what I know of her I’m not gonna complain.

-This talking energy diamond is weird, I appreciate when Doctor Who does random weird shit without explanation.

-Dan’s been around 1 episode and he’s already getting erased from time, oh dear.

-Aw hell yeah Dan’s parents! I love meeting companions’ parents!

-Russia is gone, oops. Does Doctor Who even air in Russia?

-Is Strax here? I wanna see Strax, he always cracked me up.

-“Former President of Gallifrey” nice

-I wonder if regular folks like Dan’s parents remember some of the other alien invasions that’ve happened in the Whoniverse recently. They don’t seem overly shocked at the current situation…

-Wait Yaz is still a police officer? When does she ever go to work?!

-Aww no! Civilians being lined up and executed! Sontarans look and sound so funny I forget they’re bastards.

-Oh yeah you can always count on the British military to come in and ruin everything.

-Don’t do it Dan, companions have a bad track record with ladders and cranes.

-I dig Swarm’s ridiculous aesthetic and completely OTT villainy, he seems to have wandered in from another show entirely.

-Ah, this guy is Harriet Jones no 2 I guess. (Worse, though.)

-I hope the Doctor meets Mary Seacole again too.

-Wait, did Dan leave without saying goodbye to his parents?

-Oh geez no, Yaz! However her being in the “next time” trailer considerably lessens the impact of the cliffhanger…
