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)

RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Husbands of River Song’

“It’s hard to think of a more fitting and beautiful end to a love story that constantly saw the two main players being pulled through Time and Space in different directions, particularly as the conclusion to their relationship finally sought to give them some room to breathe away from the next mortal peril/alien invasion.” We take a look at the funny and poignant 2015 Christmas Special.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Doctor Who – ‘The Husbands of River Song’
