VIE-CAP: Demons Of The Punjab

I keep a mental short-list of Doctor Who episodes I would watch over and over again, and “Demons Of The Punjab” will be one of them. We spend more time with Yaz and learn more about her family, including her Nani Umbreen, whose birthday meal is underway at the beginning of the episode. It’s the […]

VIE-CAP: The Ghost Monument
