On the ninety-fifth edition of Reality Bomb, we’re talking about all things Flux: the uber-serialized nature of it, the characters, how the Doctor’s new backstory works in it… all the things. It’s a deep dive into the special serial that made up Series 13 with Kayti Burt, Evan Teng and KatyBeth Schmid. We also talk with author Paul Hayes about his new book The Long Game: the Inside Story of How the BBC Brought Back Doctor Who and the obstacles the show faced in coming back to TV in the late ’90s including a Doctor Who film in development hell, confusion about the rights to the series and indifference within BBC culture to science fiction. And writer and renaissance man Graham Kibble-White emerges from a maze that looks like a 1980s hotel to bring The God Complex to the Gallery of the Underrated. Plus Priya Deonarain offers an editorial on what she thought about Flux when all was said and done. All this plus an experiment to give people Flux in its purest form!
