Doctor Who Magazine has announced a new “Time Team”, put together by Benjamin Cook, featuring YouTube creators such as Luke Cutforth and Gerard Groves.
The magazine’s Time Team feature began in 1999, and sees a group of fans discuss episodes of Doctor Who while watching them.
Previously, the team viewed episodes in order. The first team began with the classic episodes, and the second ventured into the modern era of the show.
This time, the team are going to be watching episodes from different eras around a specific theme, with the first being “Doctors’ first episodes”.
