Found out from DWM #529 that the following have passed away which I did not know beforehand:
Mark McBride, Ian Dow, Elaine Banham and Denise Harland.

McBride had been the stuntman van driver in Mawdryn Undead Part 1.
Other stunt work included The Avengers, The Eagle Has Landed, The Spy Who Loved Me, Superman, Superman II, Curse of the Pink Panther, A View To a Kill, Willow, Batman, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Patriot Games, Son of the Pink Panther & National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

On IMDb, Mawdryn Undead is listed under his Actor credits which also includes two episodes of Blake’s 7 in Time Squad playing 2nd Alien with this episode being incorporated in the compilation video The Beginning, and in Gold playing ZVP Guard.

McBride died earlier this year.

Dow was the lighting technician across Sylvester McCoy’s three seasons as the Doctor. For a behind the scenes person I once saw Dow in The Making of Doctor Who which looked at the making of Silver Nemesis and got included for Silver Nemesis – The Extended Version VHS release.
Unfortunately I read that this documentary was not included in Silver Nemesis’ eventual DVD release due to rights issue as it was made and broadcast by the New Jersey Network.

Dow died on January 24 2018 at the age of 75.

Born in 1942, Banham was a mediator extra in Planet of the Spiders.
Other work included Orlando as the said Orlando’s mother.

Banham died on April 12 2018.

Harland was a villager extra in The Awakening.

Weird Science 4.9 Slow Times at Farber High had Gary Wallace (John Asher) saying, “Reverse the positron neuron flow” and that sounded almost like “Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow.”

Lovett Bickford has passed away.

Born on April 8 1942, Bickford had worked on Doctor Who as the assistant floor manager for The War Machines & The Moonbase and then as director of The Leisure Hive.

DWM #191 later reported in 1992 that Bickford was not allowed to direct on Doctor Who again after The Leisure Hive because he gone severely over budget.

He died on July 28 2018 at the age of 76.

Second Empire Episode 13:
It was especially thrilling at the end with the reveal of a very familiar character at that vault.
He is played by Trevor Cooper and Cooper had guested in Revelation of the Daleks which had featured the aforementioned character but he did not play that character.

41 x 1 - The Woman Who Fell To Earth:
Season 41 opener.
Full debut of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor and written by new showrunner Chris Chibnall.
As the episode started I was waiting for the opening title sequence before remembering coming across an article that revealed it would be absent for this episode.
Already knew that Graham, Ryan and Yaz were going to be the new companions but their introductory episode here revealed how each of them are connected. Graham is Ryan’s stepgranddad while Ryan and Yaz are old school friends who haven’t seen each other for a long time.
Yaz is a cop in training when she looked into an alien incident which just happened to be reported by Ryan hence their reunion.
Graham’s wife and Ryan’s nan is called Grace. Grace is also the name of the Eighth Doctor’s companion and it is not like Chibnall didn’t know that.
In fact Eighth Doctor companion Grace is a surgeon while Graham would reveal that his Grace was a nurse.
This episode takes place in Sheffield. In an unfortunate coincidence just days before I had an unpleasant experience on facebook relating to Sheffield. Best not talk about it.
After a lengthy wait, the Doctor finally shows up by literally dropping in on a train.
The Doctor puts her finger in her nose. Didn’t think I would ever see that.
The Thirteenth Doctor resting on the sofa at Ryan, Graham and Grace’s place, felt like a reminder of the Tenth Doctor resting post-regeneration in his own debut The Christmas Invasion.
The Doctor and her new friends, but not us the viewer, saw the state of the dead body thanks to the alien.
We would have seen the state of the dead body if this had been Torchwood. In fact Chibnall had written on Torchwood.
The Doctor makes her own sonic screwdriver and questions this name and later refer to it as Swiss Army sonic.
Doctor Who purists would undoubtedly have a problem with the sonic screwdriver called something other than the sonic screwdriver.
When the Thirteenth Doctor and friends met the alien it felt similar in sight to when the Eleventh Doctor in his own debut The Eleventh Hour with Amy and Rory met up with the Atraxi on that roof.
When the alien revealed and introduced himself as Tzim-Sha, the Doctor thought he said Tim Shaw.
Could not help but think of well-known Australian called Tim Shaw. Unsurprisingly Whovians showed a clip of this Tim Shaw in response to this.
On seeing Karl in the train, I didn’t think much of him so it was quite something that he was targeted by Tim Shaw.
Quite a moment when the Doctor remembers who she is as she announced that she is the Doctor.
Sad that Grace dies in the midst of the battle against Tim Shaw.
The Doctor finally changed her clothes and for the first time ever it was in a shop and new clothes that got paid for right there and then.
In the course of this episode I had wondered why Graham, Ryan and Yaz would join the Doctor in her travels so it was a surprise to see that the choice was not in their hands as the Doctor was building a teleport, with the absence of the TARDIS in this episode, and it accidentally teleported them in deep space marking the cliffhanger.

The guest star trailer that came up after the end credits was sure impressive and very surprised that among them are Josh Bowman and Chris Noth, two people I wasn’t expecting to see here.
