This week's issue of The Stage entertainment industry newspaper contains a feature where 1970s Doctor Whoproducer Philip Hinchcliffe analyses the recent new series episode "Planet of the Ood", and compares the state of the programme now to how it was when he produced it.

The Stage's website has published a preview article for the feature, highlighting some of Hinchcliffe's comments. "It's flipping the familiar sci-fi idea of a people enslaved," he tells the paper. "Here the humans are the masters and the aliens, the slaves. It's a good, clear concept. Obviously it’s been concertinaed and compressed to fit 45 minutes, but it’s still a powerful central story.

The print issue is available across the UK from tomorrow.
