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”

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 – 2014 Christmas Special: “Last Christmas”

Doctor Who – Series 8, Episode 12: “Death in Heaven”

(Warning: spoilers) The Good * I really liked Jenna Coleman’s acting when Clara is pretending to be the Doctor – she even got the rambling down perfectly, reminding me most of the Tenth Doctor. One wonders how much of that … Continue reading

Doctor Who – Series 8, Episode 11: “Dark Water”

OK. Quite a lot to say about that one. (Warning: spoilers, and pretty big ones this time round) * The opening with Danny’s death felt a bit too sudden, considering how important a character he’s become – though I suppose … Continue reading
