Season 8, Episode 10 + Season Update

After running the 12th episode of our eighth season Saturday evening, it occurred to me that it would be very difficult to run my planned season finale next time without sacrificing the current, ongoing storyline - or, depending on how you look at it, to wrap up the current, ongoing storyline while still finishing the season with a suitably conclusive "season finale". This is mainly due to the impact of Penelope's regeneration (at the end of episode 8) on the character's personal arc as well as on the pacing of the season itself.

So, to cut a long story short, we've decided to add one or perhaps two episodes to the current season, to make sure that it does not end with a premature, rushed or "unfinished" feel. The oncoming episode 13 will not be the season finale, but the third part of a trilogy of linked scenarios (I'll post their blurbs once we've played the whole triptych) - then we'll move to the season finale proper (one or two episodes, I've not made up my mind yet). In the meantime, here is the blurb of episode 10, a direct follow-up to the post-regeneration episode 100...

Episode 10: Forgotten Faces
At last, the newly-regenerated Penelope is back on Avalon, catching up with the Doctor and quite a few other people. But when the Time Lady decides to delve into the pages of the Book of Time in search of the forgotten story of Omega, she finds herself transported to the edge of the antimatter dimension to meet the entity that once was her ancestor…
