The Whoniverse is coming, and there is nothing you are able to do to cease it. With former showrunner Russell T. Davies again on the helm Physician Who— and with an even bigger price range and a Disney+ distribution deal — the spinoff period has returned.
What might (as a giant lover of Torchwood right here – we do not depend that final season) to be a superb factor. However the first particulars we get are a bit unusual. In accordance DeadlineBBC sources confirmed that “one among these spin-offs will likely be based mostly on the army analysis group UNIT and can characteristic [Jemma] Redgrave as Kate Stewart.
Kate Stewart is one of the best. However a soldier WHO the spin-off is bizarre.
Sure, it is a analysis unit, however UNIT usually features as safety, as troopers, and as an authority that may do issues like, you realize, have secret prisons. They usually serve a story operate within the collection, a means for the Physician to interface with Earth authorities and get backup (and there was that one time he was caught right here working with them). However do we want a whole present targeted on them? When Clara and I are nonetheless there in their very own TARDIS? When there’s a lengthy listing of companions whose personal life must be filled with journey?
Davies talked about spinoffs, plural, so the rest may very well be within the works. And at the least it is not all a present in regards to the Daleks.
No additional particulars on the schedule for the UNIT spin-off have been introduced. Subsequent up within the Whoniverse is that this yr’s Christmas particular, which can characteristic Ncuti Gatwa (above) because the Fifteenth Physician.
