Doctor Who – Season 9 Episode 4

“Before The Flood” Doctor Who opens quite unexpectedly for the second part of a two part story. Instead of picking up where the last episode left off, the Doctor spends some time breaking the 4th wall and explains what the “Bootstrap paradox” is. In case you can’t be bothered clicking the wikipedia link I’ve supplied,…

Doctor Who – Season 9 Episode 3

“Under the Lake” After a really intense, character driven set of opening episodes Doctor Who shifts gears to a more mystery/horror hybrid story that focuses more on the action than the characters. Another late review but I should be on time next week. This isn’t altogether a bad thing as the beauty of Doctor Who…

Doctor Who – Season 9 Episode 2

“The Witch’s Familiar” Doctor Who seemed to leave the characters in a dire situation last week with Clara and Missy killed by Daleks and the TARDIS destroyed but it’s the character questions that really built my anticipation for this episode. This review is pretty late but I’ve had things on. Next week will unfortunately be…

Doctor Who – Season 9 Episode 1

“The Magician’s Apprentice” Here we go again, my self imposed exile from writing about TV is over I’m starting with Doctor Who. Many long term readers of this website will know that I was less than impressed with the last season but I forge on because I want to like this show so am I…

Season 8 Episode 12 – “Death In Heaven” Where do I begin with this? I will say one thing, this episode of Doctor Who wasn’t quite as bad as last week but that’s really not saying much given the quality of that episode. Lots of spoilers will follow here but it’s hard to talk about without…

On the D/L – Doctor Who

Season 8 Episode 11 – “Dark Water” Oh Steven Moffat, it’s like you’re trolling the viewers of Doctor Who by making it hilariously bad on purpose. After an event that shakes Clara to the core, she and The Doctor go on a mission to find the afterlife and are confronted by the mysterious Missy (though…

On the D/L – Doctor Who

Season 8 Episode 10 – “In The Forest of the Night” In a plot so uniquely Doctor Who, a mysterious forest springs up in the middle of London as well as across the entire world. It happens to coincide with Clara and Danny taking some kids out on a school trip. This episode was actually a…

On the D/L – Doctor Who

Season 8 Episode 9 – “Flatline” Looks like Doctor Who has finally done it and decided to dispense with The Doctor and let Clara do pretty much all of the work when 2 Dimensional beings invade our reality and cause people to go missing as they pull them into the walls. Writer Jamie Mathieson was…
