Doctor Who is heading for an epic Game of Thrones moment

Doctor Who is borrowing from Game of Thrones.

Doctor Who takes risks. It’s in the series’ DNA.

After introducing the first female Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, a few years ago, the long-running British sci-fi series continued its tried-and-true combination of one-off time travel episodes, heartwarming holiday specials, and gripping season finales.

The dramatic potential of Doctor Who reached new heights at the end of Season 12, which completely reinvented the Doctor’s origin story. Now, headed into its thirteenth season (with the thirteenth Doctor), the series is trying something new: a season made up of chapters in one overarching story. Here’s why this serialized style is risky — and how the series could pull it off.

Loki theory redefines Avengers: Infinity War’s strangest moment

Was a powerful Avenger already aware of He Who Remains?

What if Sylvie and Loki aren’t the only characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have crossed paths with He Who Remains?

That pair finally came face-to-face with the powerful and eccentric Kang variant in Loki’s Season 1 finale, at which point he gave them significant reasons to let him continue controlling the timestream. He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) even went so far as to offer Loki (Tom Hiddleston) ownership of the Infinity Gauntlet, proving just how invested he was in maintaining the timeline’s stability.

One new theory supposes that He Who Remains had previously made a deal with another influential figure in the MCU, radically changing our understanding of a pivotal scene in Avengers: Infinity War.
