In the latest episode of Doctor Who, bubble wrap, which you’ve likely popped with copious amounts of glee, has been rendered a fearsome, transparent temptation of doom.
In the sixth episode of Series 11 “Kerblam!,” the Doctor, Graham, Yaz, and Ryan visit the warehouse of Kerblam, the galaxy’s largest retailer (and a subtle dig at Amazon).
