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”

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

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

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
