You could be forgiven for thinking, taking only the Tweet from the BBC as your reference, that Doctor Who has been reinvented as an American super hero in tight underpants and a mask. Perhaps they are trying to jump on the bandwagon which is Marvel Comics and the success of their super hero films, well, mostly. Not that they need to; Doctor Who has been a success with its television audience for several decades, and will likely remain so for several more. But why, then, a Tweet over Doctor Who with just a superhero in front of a US city nightscape?

Of course we don’t want spoilers before watching such a masterpiece, but suggesting that the Doctor has made such a massive change in his appearance, in one of his many rejuvenations or reincarnation could bring many Whovians – as they are apparently called – to the barricades.

Luckily The Independent is there to rescue the day for the BBC, and bring those rather shy characters – the Doctor and his assistants – back into the light and their well-earned place alongside the superhero of our youthful dreams.
Whichever world it is this time has been saved, again.
