Im sorry, but if I see Patrick Troughtons face ever again, it will be too soon.

Doctor Whos latest attempt to distract us all from the, well, World in Which We Live is not a new piece of short fiction, or a tiny slice of audio-drama fun, but instead a procrastination nightmare from which I cannot escape.

Doctor Who: Thirteen is simple enough, really. A tile-sliding game in the vein of 2048, you have to match Doctors from William Hartnells first (well, I guess now hes First in a different context), all the way through to Jodie Whittakers incumbent Time Lord. Two Hartnells make a Troughton, two of which make a Pertwee, and so on and so forth. Good luck getting even the modern era of the shows Doctors however, because blimey, by Rassilons ridiculously oversized shoulderpads it seems unnaturally hard for a little time waster.

Maybe Im just better at trying to split my brain in two over the chronology of the Time War than I am at logic puzzles. Ive seen John Hurts War Doctor exactly once, but otherwise, Im drowning in seas of Bakers, Colin and Tom alike, and Troughtons, endless Troughtons, as I curse one trapped in a circle of McCoys and McGanns that Ive somehow managed to cut off from the pack. Its like when the second Doctor regenerates at the end of The War Games and is just surrounded by spinning ghosts of his own confused face.

At this point, Im with the Master: turn them all into Cybermen, blow Gallifrey to smithereens, and start all over. Should you desire to waste a bit of your own timeno TARDIS requiredyou can check out Doctor Who: Thirteen here.
