The moment has been prepared for...

...and Doctor Flu regenerates in this week's issue of The Beano! That should clear his head. It's the final episode of the time travelling spoof. 

The other mini-strip I have in today's issue is Rasher, and this week he daydreams of being Bat-Pig

The Beano, - on sale now (with a free gift too) for only £2. Still the cheapest comic on the stands! (And if you prefer the digital edition from The Beano app it's even cheaper, - £1.49, - which also includes the free gift.)

That's one advantage of this week's free gift being a book. They can't include toys or sweets in the digital edition, but they can with that. And it makes a pleasant change that they didn't jack up the price on the print edition like they often have in the past.

As for Doctor Flu, was that ending inspired by lines from Castrovalva and The Parting of the Ways, where the Doctor says he doesn't know what he's going to get when he regenerates? And does Doctor Flu's companion have a name? It was never mentioned.

Yes, that's right James. You obviously know your Doctor Who.

I didn't get around to giving his assistant a name but it was loosely based on Clara.
