What is Doctor Who: The Tsuranga Conundrum?

Standard

The Doctor might be able to travel through time and explore the past via the tardis but if we want to do so it involves far more work and toil; searching through the lonely earth, climbing through the briar and bramble for the past that once felt the touch of the kings and the breath of the wind as it now sits with the ghosts of the men who can never sing again and thus the Doctor and team tardis will this week be becoming detectorists in……………….

This isn’t going to be a post about whether this is good or bad just about the guy who put the bullet in the gun, placed an apple on little Timmy’s head and said to the local children “bet you can’t hit that apple” before running and hiding in his office to play with his action figures…………………
