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

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 3: “Thin Ice”

I’m still waiting for Bill to really stand out as a character from other companions, but I do still like how she’s progressing with each adventure: from looking astounded upon arrival at the Frost Fair, and telling the Doctor, “I’m … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 2: “Smile”

Personally, if I were writing for Doctor Who, I wouldn’t name my monster after a well-known English football player. Hey, that’s Rani’s mum from The Sarah Jane Adventures! This episode reinforces what an utterly worthless character Nardole is, given that … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 1: “The Pilot”

Finally, a new series of Doctor Who has begun! I’d almost forgotten the feeling. The Doctor has a picture of Susan on his desk! I’d have been happier if they didn’t keep focussing on it though. So why does the … Continue reading

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2015 – “The Husbands of River Song”

Merry Christmas, everybody! This year, I found myself getting a few presents that I wasn’t expecting¬†but was particularly happy to actually have when I unwrapped them, such as a tool kit, and a Dad’s Army DVD boxset. It’s nice when … Continue reading

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
