This isn’t the first time The Doctor has used chess to play off against an enemy with Very Big consequences.

This thing with chess in the recent episode, how central it was to the defeat of the enemy and the stakes on the outcome reminded me of an adventure from the time of the Seventh Doctor called ‘The Curse of Fenric’.

One could maybe call it a habit even, and a pretty fantastic one at that.
