The Beginning of TSV 56

Yep, TSV time, and this time it's issue 56. Most of the issue is pretty clearly made up of reviews. Of TV story reviews (which are more important than other reviews as where would we be without the TV series?). And there is quite a few of them.

Take a moment to consider this: of all the DW TV stories up to then, issue 56 reviews about one tenth of them. That's 10% crammed into one issue! At that rate, how are we still talking Doctor Who after all this time.

But talking we are. Or maybe rambling. Certainly, my piece The Beginning of the Beginning is fairly incoherent, take a heck of a long time to say "the Terminus ship came from the previous universe, accidentally ending that one, and the Slipback ship started the current universe". Hmm... maybe it does need more explaining than that, but I'm sure that piece doesn't make it any clearer.

Fortunately, there's a lot more than that in there, and there's the breaking news of The Lion's discovery, a big find for little ol' New Zealand... but more on that next issue... except it's already on line! (I refuse to say "on line-on"... mainly because it's very hard to work visually.)
