Rewriting History: Captain America & Doctor Who Revisionism Compared

The Witch's Familiar

Doctor Who revisionism permeates the show’s long history. It’s hardly a surprise as the series passes through the hands of producers and showrunners and is watched by a changing audience. It’s barely different to Marvel comics changing the origins of its characters, or learning about the origins of the movie-version of James Bond.

In a lull between kommentaries (we’ve a new one for you next week) Brian, James and Christian discuss recent Marvel movies, the Doctor’s place in the Marvel comics universe, Captain America’s Hydra revisionism and how the producers of Doctor Who could do the same thing with the Doctor — or have they already?

PLUS: Christian and Brian talk 1980s action figures.
