    Doctor Who’s New Companion Revealed

    The good Doctor himself, Doctor Who has been through innumerable casting changes. Since the sci-fi series has been on the air since 1963, we’ve seen a revolving door of actors take the role of the Time Lord. While the development of a new Doctor is always one of the most followed casting announcements, there is […]

    The Husbands of River Song

    I managed to get to the Christmas Special awhile back, but unfortunately I simply didn’t have the time available to give you my thoughts. Was it perfect? No, no it wasn’t … the early parts of the episode were especially clunky and overdone, but boy oh boy did it end well! A beautifully poignant swan […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Doctor Who – Face the Raven (S9E10) – The Death of Clara!!

    Bang & Kaboom … a major shift in direction here and while it’s one we all saw coming, it’s still somewhat troubling in this excellent episode written by Sarah Dollard.  Clara played the Doctor a little too well, made a decision that was true to her character, and died as a result of that decision. […]

    Doctor Who – Sleep No More (S9E9)

    Continuing on from the interesting / intriguing / excellent but dumb Zygon episodes (Zygon Invasion falls into the dumb camp and Inversion into the excellent one with one of the best monologues from a Doctor in a long time) we come to another one that’s just a bit weird really.   “Sleep No More” is […]

  • Doctor Who
    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 Zygon Invasion (S9E7)

    It’s probably easy to explain our slight ambivalence to Episode 7: The Zygon Invasion with the knowledge that the Zygons are our least favourite of the Doctor’s intergalactic enemies. Not only do they look a bit rubbish, but they’re also a million miles away from having the same momentous impact as other big hitting baddies […]

    Doctor Who – The Woman Who Lived (S09E06)

    Really sorry for being so far behind in my Doctor Who reviews but will do my best to catch up quickly!  A continuation to the Girl Who Died, we find out quickly that Ashildr is no longer the innocent girl we left in the Viking village.  Much like that episode, though, the story here plays […]

  • Doctor Who
    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 […]

    Before the Flood

    This season is all about the two parters and continuations and this episode is no exception.  Continuing on from the less than excellent Under the Lake, we’ve got part two – Before the Flood.  Now this one has some definite elements that are quite interesting.  Ones that absolutely make you think, and perhaps the first […]

    Dr. Who – Under the Lake

    Sorry for the delay on these – been a busy time! Right lets get started, shall we?  I’m not too sure what it is with the Doctor and monsters related to water – I mean it’s almost like he’s TRYING to scare us isn’t it! 🙂  Let’s be honest – this episode and its partner […]

    The Witches Familiar – Doctor Who (S9E2)

    Lets start with the positive on this episode as it must be said, there were some misses, but still quite a bit to like and while this episode was not as good as The Magician’s Apprentice, it still moved forward in a fairly quick and interesting fashion. While we all knew that Missy and Clara […]

    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 […]
