Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Crikey that's difficult! I was convinced the answer was simply Doctor Who. Then I read the solution. Good luck!

    Good Lord, it's like Round Britain Quiz and Kit Williams' Masquerade fell in love and had an evil baby!

    An article in the Guardian from a year ago that I've been meaning to link to. (Sadly, by all accounts the BBCs Father Brown series is little more than a daytime tv Midsummer Murders.)
    Obviously wrong to say only McCoy's performance fits the description (or that McCoy was the nemesis of the series). Troughton's performance does. Actually, I'd say only Pertwee, the Bakers, and Tennant have no leanings in that direction. I'd say it's the sort of critical remark observation that gets right to the heart of the matter, despite one wanting to disagree with it completely.

    Well don't I feel stupid. (I noticed some Doctor Whoey resonances, but attributed it to my own apophenia.)

    Your apophenia is never in error at Mystery Hunt.

    Which team are you on? I was hunting with Team Unseen, and felt pretty pleased that I solved two meta puzzles this year. Oh, and I solved the Doctor Who/Simpsons cross-over puzzle single-handedly.

    Oh! Simpsons! Fantastic! /goes to solve.

    Oh, and I'm still in the room for Left as an Exercise for the Reader.

    Alas, I am sitting on the other side of the Atlantic – otherwise I would indeed have dropped by. I only get to Hunt remotely, and although I miss all the onsite shenanigans, it's still good fun and one of the highlights of my year. One day I am going to come over for it, but probably not soon.
