    At least they're upfront that the next season is crap ;) It's all backflowing up now!

    Hot damn! A Halloween premiere! Here's hoping the premiere has some classic Who horror elements to it.

    Yeah, the BBC's severe disconnect with modern television marketing is the main issue here. I'd like to think they finally get a clue but I'm not holding my breath.

    Apparently the mention of "creatures called Ravagers" means there's a connection to the first Ninth Doctor Adventures box set from Big Finish, which is both interesting and weird.

    Anyone else getting slight kitchen sink vibes from this? As in, throwing a whole lot at us in the hope at least some of it sticks? And surely they could have come up with a more interesting and tantalising name than 'The Flux', which just...doesn't inspire. Or maybe I'm just being a little cynical. Hopefully we get a full trailer, with more substance, and that sparks something.

    That poster and the title is giving me Loki finale/Spider-Man: No Way Home vibes.

    Must be a strictly British idiom and a really old one at that because I've never heard it used in that context. So, did movie audiences in the UK giggle like schoolkids when Doc Brown discussed his "flux capacitor"? :shrug:

    Not strictly British; it was a catch-all term for diarrhea and dysentery in the pre-modern USA as well.

    No they didn't. Almost no one will have ever heard it used as anything other than meaning a state of change unless they're studying history. Or welding something.

    Or gastric reflux. Never heard it in connection with the runs.

    So Flux is the title of this season? Kinda weird the way they have it on the poster. Is this 'Doctor Who: Flux'?

    Wouldn't be the first time a season of Doctor Who had its own title, albeit the first time since the show returned in 2005. The Key to Time and Trial of a Time Lord, as well as season 8 often referred to as The Master Season. Plus, the various trilogies (N-Space, Black Guardian, maybe another one I'm forgetting?).

    Yes.
    All six episodes of Series 13 are one single story, most likely divided into Parts 1-6 in the style of old-school Doctor Who serials.

    I doubt that. I'm willing to bet each episode will have their own title while the season has its own umbrella title. Just like The Key to Time and Trial of a Timelord.

    We'll see, but my interpretation of what we know about Series 13 leads me to believe that it's going to be essentially a single 6-part Serial (to use Classic Who terminology).

    Incidentally, Trial of a Time Lord is a better comparison than The Key to Time because, like ToaTL, Flux has a single Story Code whereas the six stories that compromised TKtT each had their own individual Story Codes.

    The ad for Flux shows a rainbow and all I can think of is Arthur Dent tossing a rainbow of yarn in the Hitchhikers film. Flux, indeed.

    I am sure I am not alone in recognising it as meaning shit right away.
    Also, hey look! The 21st Century is getting sits very own Trial Of a Timelord moment.
    JNT had to keep signing on to prevent the show being cancelled too…

    Le sigh.
