Colin Neal

Colin Neal’s earliest memory is of Lalla Ward in a quarry trapped inside a clear plastic cylinder. When he mentioned this to her at a convention, she replied, “Oh, you never forget your first companion, darling”. His favourite Classic seasons are the Key to Time and The Trial of a Time Lord; his favourite New Who episodes are The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End. He has quite a fondness for Clara and Ace, he once ate some of Nicola Bryant’s lemon meringue pie, and he was not quick enough to find celery after spotting Peter Davison that one time in Marks and Spencer.

The Goldilocks Zone

This week, Nathan, Brendan, Simon and Colin are trapped in a room with only forty-five minutes to decide whether Kill the Moon is terrible or a towering work of genius. It goes quite well, surprisingly.
