• Doctor Who

    OK where to start with this one?  There was goodness a-plenty here but at the same time, some jarring elements that just didn’t fit.  Overall however this was a fitting if somewhat depressing end to the season.  While the future of Clara is somewhat up in the air, Peter Capaldi’s Doctor has definitely cemented him […]

    Heaven Sent – Doctor Who (S09E11)

    A somewhat different episode to the one that I was expecting, Heaven Sent worked – although it wasn’t without its flaws.  One thing I’ve come to expect from Capaldi at this point is the ability to pontificate at great length.  He’s demonstrated it quite ably in some of more recent episodes of the show (The […]

    Battletech – A Return to the Inner Sphere

    It’s been a long time since I originally read and played in the Battletech universe. However, with a recent membership in Scribd after I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited membership I joyfully came across this series once again. If you’re a fan of reading and audiobooks, I highly recommend Scribd as while I liked Kindle Unlimited, […]

    Hell Bent

    Hell Bent – Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 12 An interesting name is one of the first things that jumps out at you in this episode that follows the almost perfect Heaven Sent.  Personally, I didn’t like this one as much as the previous episode and perhaps surprisingly given how the previous Christmas episodes have […]

    Sympathy for the Devil – Supernatural (S5E1)

    Sorry about this – my writing hasn’t kept up with my watching, (!) but I’ll get all of Season 4 up on the site eventually including an end of season recap.  Season 5, however, needs to be told too and I wouldn’t want you to be kept waiting so without further ado, let’s get into […]

    The Zygon Inversion – S9E8 – Doctor Who

    The second part of the Zygon storyline was definitely better than the first.  Perhaps most importantly it had one of THE most epic monologues by Peter Capaldi!   Like so much this season, the strength of this two-parter is the performances. Ingrid Oliver, Jemma Redgrave’s Kate of course, but always Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman. […]

    Doctor Who – The Girl Who Died

    Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are well and truly up to speed again in Doctor Who Series 9, and with the sheer fun and portentous finale of Episode 5: The Girl Who Died, they’ve only added to the brilliance of the series. This time around they find themselves in the company of Maisie Williams off of Game Of […]

    The Magician’s Apprentice – Doctor Who S09E01

    Loved it, loved it, loved it!  Many girlish squeals of joy also! 🙂  Now that we’ve got that out of the way, lets get down to it shall we?  There was just so much to enjoy and love in this episode I know that I’m going to miss something however I’ll try to cover the […]

    “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester” – S4E07

    Some of the best episodes of Supernatural are the Halloween ones … in a similar vein to the classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer they absolutely roll out all the stops on these episodes … after all they are quite appropriate to the holiday and this one is no exception. By the way, in case you […]

  • Doctor Who

    As a ‘last hurrah’ before Clara stops travelling with The Doctor, he takes her on board a retrofitted spaceship homage to The Orient Express, arriving just after elderly passenger Mrs. Pitt died upon hallucinating a Mummy in the last 66 seconds of her life. The Doctor works with ship engineer Perkins to investigate her death […]

    Dr. Who – Last Christmas (S8 Christmas Special)

    It’s a long story … well no, not really, its actually not that long at all so stick with me.  Santa Claus is real – well you already knew that right? … well, maybe he’s real and maybe not.  OK, I know – pretty wishy/washy, but what do you expect … it is Doctor Who […]
