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 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 1: “The Pilot”

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”

Ah, that sad moment when only Peter Capaldi’s name appears in the opening credits, lingering a little longer than usual. So we have an episode where the Doctor is not just without a companion, but without any other character besides … Continue reading
