Doctor Who – Series 9: Final Thoughts

If Series 8 was about the Twelfth Doctor settling into his freshly regenerated skin and establishing who he truly was as a man, Series 9 sees him much more comfortable and just getting on with life as a wandering Time … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 12: “Hell Bent”

As I watched the introduction where the Doctor finds Clara in an American diner, I thought this would be the epilogue and the rest of the episode would be ‘how we got here’. Turmed out, it both was and wasn’t, … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 10: “Face The Raven”

(Warning: spoilers) “The Defence Department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid.” – Goose, Top Gun So, let’s start with the biggie. From what I could gather on Twitter, many people were anticipating that this would … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 9: “Sleep No More”

For a ‘scary’ episode of Doctor Who, this one certainly has a tantalising opening with comments like “You must not watch this” and “Pay close attention; your lives may depend on it.” Giving each crew member a survival rating – … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 8: “The Zygon Inversion”

As this episode began, I feared we were about to face another Forest of the Dead/Last Christmas style setup with Clara in a dream world she can’t or doesn’t want to wake up from – but no, she figures it … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 6: “The Woman Who Lived”

As we open, we already know the highwayman is Ashildr of course, and we’re just left wondering why she has a man’s voice. She has a great attitude in this scene though, and even her dialogue in the Knightmare voice … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 5: “The Girl Who Died”

The dramatic already-in-the-adventure beginning may not have occurred with every Moffat episode, but certainly enough for us to be adjusted to it – and the Doctor and Clara’s casual treatment of it afterwards feels typical as well. So the theme … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 4: “Before The Flood”

As in Listen, the Twelfth Doctor kicks off by giving exposition to nobody in particular, though it’s still a great scene. And you start thinking how his talk of the bootstrap paradox will pay off later – and then you … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 9, Episode 3: “Under The Lake”

So early on, we can recognise the stupid business-minded character, plus the tomboy, identifiable by her sleeveless vest and cap. Clara saying “I want another adventure” seems like a bit of self-awareness again, as the audience themselves may well be wanting … Continue reading
