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 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 11: “Heaven Sent”
