Johnny Spandrell

Johnny Spandrell spent about forty years watching, reading and thinking about Doctor Who. Then he wrote it all down on his blog, Random Whoness, which former DWM editor Gary Gillatt called “stupendous” and “essential”. At this stage in his many lives, he has a pleasant, open face and frequently makes a wheezing, groaning sound. He lives on the NSW South Coast with his wife, two kids and about a thousand Doctor Who books.

The Planet Quantos

This week, we’re hanging out in a mystical London street full of Sontarans, Judoon and Cybermen, investigating a murder with Johnny Spandrell — only to find, to our horror, that the murder hasn’t happened yet. And, of course, that it’s time for Clara Oswald to Face the Raven.
