RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Doctor Falls’ (Series 10, Episode 12)

“There were undoubtedly niggling problems with this finale, but overall it was a strong, penultimate outing for Capaldi’s Doctor. Yet again the warmth of the performances papered over the cracks, creating an episode that didn’t shy away from packing an emotional punch, which is exactly what you’d want as Twelve’s time draws to a close.” Our Recap and Review of the gut-wrenching Series 10 finale. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Doctor Falls’ (Series 10, Episode 12)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘World Enough and Time’ (Series 10, Episode 11)

“We were finally gifted with a truly terrifying situation that actually felt like it had high stakes, something we haven’t necessarily had for a while. The sense of that was made all the more acute by the fact that Bill is a character you can readily identify with.” Our Recap and Review of the terrifying first part of the finale. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘World Enough and Time’ (Series 10, Episode 11)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Eaters of Light’ (Series 10, Episode 10)

“Yet again, ‘The Eaters of Light’ was another paint by the numbers offering. That’s not to say that there wasn’t a good deal of merit to the episode. There absolutely was, as Matt Lucas finally got material befitting his comedic timing, and Who veteran, Rona Munro, delivered some cracking lines of dialogue.” Our Recap and Review of the generic tenth episode. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Eaters of Light’ (Series 10, Episode 10)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Empress of Mars’ (Series 10, Episode 9)

“Yes, ‘Empress of Mars’ was an improvement on last week’s offering. You could even go so far as to say it was fifty minutes of ridiculous fun, which it was. That does nothing, nevertheless, to lessen the fact that this episode was essentially filler.” Our Recap and Review of the predictable 9th episode.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘Empress of Mars’ (Series 10, Episode 9)

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

“Gone are the days when Ten and Eleven could barely acknowledge the number of casualties they caused on Gallifrey. 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)

Entrances & Exits: Our Hopes for Series 10 of Doctor Who and Beyond

“Series 9 is done and dusted. The Christmas Special has long been put away with the rest of the decorations, and now we’ve been left wondering where to next for Capaldi’s incarnation of the intrepid time traveller. So here we are we are thrashing around a few ideas about what we’d like to see in Series 10, and expressing our hopes for the show in general as it looks to be about to be on the cusp of a major transition period.” We discuss the things we’d like to see next series, and look at the long-term prospects for the show.… Read More Entrances & Exits: Our Hopes for Series 10 of Doctor Who and Beyond
