friend Stu and I invented a game. You can play it at home, or in work,
or whilst riding a tandem.
All you need is a brain full of knowledge about Doctor Who.
The game is called "The Chain of Morbius." You start with the

it in turns to find a link to another story.
We introduced two rules:
1 - No direct cast/crew links.
2 - No direct writer links.
So you can't link Remembrance to Robots of Death beacause
of Pamela Salem, and you can't link Planet of the Daleks with
Death to the Daleks because of Terry Nation. However you can
still use actors or writers as long as you're clever with it - such as
Terry Nation to link The Keys of Marinus to The Android Invasion
because they are they only two non-Dalek stories he wrote for Doctor
Well you can make up your own rules. I'm sure there should be a clever
way to have a points scoring system in the game too. We discussing having
