Superb episode next week (in my opinion; for the record, our Whovian cult editor has branded it "shockingly bad") which sees the Doc return Martha to the present day. Or, to be precise, one day after she left. But before they have a parting of the ways, the Doc is drawn into a new crisis of intrigue. Professor Richard Lazarus, a 76-year-old - for whom Martha's mother and sister work - is preparing to demonstrate something that he claims will change the future of mankind. Mavis from Corrie appears, with an orange twist, while the Doc finally gets his organ out. One other thing - Martha's family have a much deeper connection with the overriding storylines of this series than you may have suspected. Don't forget your bonus hint in the Tube Talk MySpace! Doctor Who airs Saturday evenings on BBC One
Considering the comm, I highlighted the relevant bit. Now whatever could this mean? The Joneses having a "deeper connection with the overriding storylines"? And this revealed in the episode with a Prof. Lazarus (who Martha's mum and Tish work for) and his wonky genetic experiments? That sounds like it may be more significant than just tying the Joneses to the general blood & family theme of this season and being the companion's family. Could this possibly tie into why the Doctor brings Martha on as an official companion? Oh how I'm tempted to spoiler-spec liek whoa. Is it next Saturday yet??
