After winning a holiday (just go with it) the gang are teleported to a scenic holiday resort – that just happens to have been built on the surface of a dead planet. It’s a mixed bag, but has a twist that makes it worth watching.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Orphan 55’ Review"
After eight episodes, the first season of The Witcher is at an end. Along the way it became the biggest show in the world, something I’m not sure anyone anticipated. But how did it wrap it all up?

Doctor Who returned in the New Year and was surprisingly good. Sure it had the usual wonkiness that is now part and parcel of the show, but it was entertaining – with a last-minute twist that took it to the next level. That meant, for the first time in ages, I was really excited for this episode. And it managed to be even better than I expected. Is the show back on top?Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Spyfall: Part Two’ Review"
With only two episodes left, The Witcher still has a few things to sort out. Ciri is still out there alone, Nilfgaard is on the attack, Geralt is reluctant to grasp his destiny, and Yen is having a crappy time of things trying to find her place in the world. Not to mention the wider political intrigue and backstabbing taking place in the royal courts across the Continent. Luckily, this episode goes a long way to tying up these disparate threads.Read more "The Witcher Episode 7 Review – ‘Before a Fall’"

Doctor Who is back with a bang! After a disappointing last season (but a fantastic Jodie Whittaker performance) the show returns with all the fantastic elements of the previous season (Whittaker, a higher budget, great scripts, brilliant music, Bradley Walsh) and seemingly sets a course to correct what the last season lacked. There’s more stuff for Yaz to do, more variety and – most importantly – more classic Who stuff.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Spyfall: Part One’ Review"
Based on “The Last Wish”, one of the best of the original short stories, this episode sees Geralt and Yennefer cross paths for the first time. And their relationship promises to be an interesting one. At the very least, this makes the timeline a lot simpler. Ciri’s plot moves forward too, as she is taken from Brokilon by a doppler impersonating her old friend Mousesack.Read more "The Witcher Episode 5 Review – ‘Bottled Appetites’"
