The survivors of the Flux face danger and death across time and space, with the end of the universe in sight. But what did YOU think of it?


Survivors of the Flux was Doctor Who at its most epic, with perhaps never bigger stakes. And like most of this year’s episodes, it seems to have gone very well with fans. Peter Anghelides (@anghelides), Phil Scully (@philscully), and Jack Newman (@Janksy_) were just some of the fans singling Survivors of the Flux out for its mix of huge scope and human emotion.



Even people who haven’t always thought the Thirteenth Doctor era so far had hit these highs, like Jacob (@zBxDoctor), are thinking Flux is something special.


This series has certainly seen Chris Chibnall blend in more comedic notes than before, to the show’s benefit. Take the gossipy hermit, for instance, who immediately won a fanbase of his own, like @DoccyWhoLover


The cliffhangers this year have been a real strength of Doctor Who: Flux, with artist Sophie Cowdrey (@sophiecowdrey) just two of those so near the edge of the seat, they’ve almost fallen off.


Although as cliffhanger resolutions go, the Doctor cheekily wrapping her knuckles on a Weeping Angel’s face might be one of the defining images of her era. And, really, who hasn’t wanted to do that?



Meanwhile, another Doctor Who cover artist, Lee Binding (@LeeBinding), decided the most exciting thing about this episode was Dan’s new facial fuzz.


Of course, we always knew there’d be big cheers from fans at the return of UNIT and Kate Stewart, with Brad (@MrBradPreston) leading the charge.

But there was an extra surprise with a vocal cameo by a certain Corporal Lethbridge-Stewart, as caught by James Johnson (@ThePrydonian)


Of course, the very idea of his being a Corporal in UNIT in 1967, never mind UNIT already existing before he was Colonel in Web of Fear had some fans’ heads melting, like Dubliam (@Dubliam2003) and Big Finish writer Lisa McMullin (@lisamcmullin) (Enh, maybe we’ll pretend that this is the Flux messing up history…)

Doctor Who: Flux continues next Sunday at 6.20pm on BBC One, and on BBC America and AMC+ in the US, with Chapter Six: The Vanquishers

In the final epic chapter in the story of the Flux, all hope is lost. The forces of darkness are in control. But when the monsters have won, who can you count upon to save the universe?



  1. Dr’s parents…..Vinder and Bel looking for each other in a timey wimey side story? Just a thought.
