Kneel Before Pod – Comic-Con 2017

San Diego Comic-Con is one of the biggest events in the nerd calendar and 2017 was a year that just kept on giving in terms of teases of great content. As nerds it is our responsibility to get in front of a microphone and talk about it. Craig and Chris bring their unique takes on…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 12

“The Doctor Falls” Doctor Who closes off the current season with an abundance of Cybermen and two versions of the Master to challenge the Doctor. The previous episode was a tough act to follow in terms of what it promised. Bringing back the Mondassian Cybermen, doubling up on versions of the Master and teasing a…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 11

“World Enough and Time” Doctor Who builds to the end of the season with a ship where time works differently in different sections. The episode begins with a really engaging cold open with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor spilling out of the TARDIS while undergoing the beginnings of a regeneration. He’s clearly distressed by it and doesn’t…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 10

“The Eaters of Light” Doctor Who heads to Roman occupied Scotland to learn the reason for the disappearance of the Roman Ninth Legion. This episode is an important one even if it doesn’t seem like it. Peter Capaldi’s time as the Doctor is coming to an end and this is the final stand alone episode…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 9

“Empress of Mars” Doctor Who heads to Mars after a message is discovered on the surface left at the time of Queen Victoria. The most recent episodes have been really full on so it was possibly for the best for the show to slow down and deliver something more stand-alone. It did feel refreshing to…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 8

“The Lie of the Land” Doctor Who closes off the arc started in “Extremis” and continued in “The Pyramid at the End of the World“. I’ve been very vocal about how weak the previous two episodes have been. Despite some strong ideas and excellent acting the overall premise has been fairly badly executed to the…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 7

“The Pyramid at the end of the World” Doctor Who continues the story started last week with a mysterious 5000 year old pyramid that appears overnight. Global threats have happened so often in the revived Doctor Who that they’ve become something of a joke. It gets to the point where the Earth has been threatened…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 6

“Extremis” Doctor Who reveals the occupant of the vault and the Doctor is recruited by the Vatican to investigate a mysterious book. The concept is a simple yet interesting one. I love the idea of a book that causes people to drop dead shortly after reading it. It’s a compelling mystery and feels like an…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 5

“Oxygen” Doctor Who heads into outer space to a space station filled with corpses where oxygen is considered a valuable commodity. This season has pretty much been defined by mysteries though as I’ve said before most Doctor Who episodes are a mystery in the beginning as there’s always a period of time before the Doctor…
