The Thirteenth Doctor Is Here

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” – Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park Ladies and gentlemen, after a very, very long wait, we finally know who the Thirteenth Doctor … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10: Final Thoughts

“I really love the fact that we’re still getting this level of quality from Doctor Who, nine series and more than ten years since its revival. Hopefully this shows that it still has plenty of momentum and will just keep … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 12: “The Doctor Falls”

The beginning of this episode left me thinking wistfully of a time when Doctor Who cliffhangers actually followed directly on from when the previous episode ended. We finally get the Two Masters concept used in full, and it’s really great. … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 11: “World Enough and Time”

The problem with starting off your story with a flash-forward that shows the Doctor regenerating is that if you know Steven Moffat well enough, you immediately think “I bet it’s a fake-out.” I know the Doctor is supposed to regenerate … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 10: “The Eaters of Light”

I do quite like these little random statements about the world that the Doctor makes, like how crows can speak but nobody has intelligent conversations with them anymore. I also like this episode’s historical setting. It’s nice when Doctor Who … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 9: “Empress of Mars”

Ah, I always enjoy seeing NASA in anything. Too bad the Doctor and his buddies have to come along and ruin the dramatic atmosphere in Mission Control. I do like the concept of Victorian soldiers on Mars, but it’s not … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 8: “The Lie of the Land”

The Doctor’s evil grin before the opening credits is pretty scary, but his soothing broadcast where a bunch of walking mummies are portrayed as eternal friends and mentors of humanity is just…bizarre. Memory police? Rewriting history to make people believe … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 7: “The Pyramid at the End of the World”

“I wouldn’t have voted for him. He’s orange.” Managing a jab at Trump without it actually sounding political and thereby offending people – nicely done. At first, the cuts back-and-forth to the agrofuel facility are just as distracting as the … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 6: “Extremis”

Well, I wasn’t expecting Missy to turn up so quickly in this episode. And it’s Missy in the vault, too? I wasn’t expecting that reveal mid-season, either. Should have known this episode was written by Steven Moffat, with that execution … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 5: “Oxygen”

The opening for this episode certainly does a good job of setting the scene, particularly with regards to its monsters. The suit-zombies are very Resident Evil with their tilted heads and slow walks, and certainly creepy if not really scary. … Continue reading
