RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Extremis’ (Series 10, Episode 6)

“Yes, ‘Extremis’ was needlessly complicated. Yes, you could see Moffat’s hands all over it from the vantage point of Space. And, yes, the big reveal regarding who’s in the Vault was rather anti-climactic. Nevertheless, there were still things to like about the episode, even if it’s execution didn’t necessarily hit the mark.” Our Recap and Review of the problematic 6th episode.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Extremis’ (Series 10, Episode 6)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Oxygen’ (Series 10, Episode 5)

“Up until now, The Doctor has managed to undo almost all of the bad each weekly threat has tried to inflict on their victims.

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Thin Ice’ (Series 10, Episode 3)

Twelve not only recognises the blood on his hands, but tries to move on, even if that seems unnecessarily cold to human ears. The difficult conversation with his newest companion about the bodies that are littered around in his 2000 year lifespan further helped to flesh out Capaldi’s incarnation, and reaffirmed his alien nature, even if he looks increasingly like a benevolent Grandpa.” Our Recap and Review of a ‘punchy’ 3rd episode.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Thin Ice’ (Series 10, Episode 3)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Smile’ (Series 10, Episode 2)

“In spite of the creeping sense that the past is following him around, there really is no comparison between this Twelve, the Time Lord who quotes Bowie songs and declares himself handsome as he prances around, with the rather dour alien who used to tell everybody to shut up as soon as look at them.” Our Recap and Review of a ‘fun, but lightweight’ second episode.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Smile’ (Series 10, Episode 2)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’

“Let’s face it, The Return of Doctor Mysterio is a big ball of Christmas fluff. There have been much meatier episodes for Capaldi to sink his teeth into during his time as the Twelfth incarnation, but that didn’t necessarily make this seasonal outing any less enjoyable.” Our Recap and Review of the 2016 Christmas Special. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’
