Doctor Who – Series 1 Rewatch and Review

With the recent airing of Revolution of the Daleks, I found myself genuinely excited, in a way that I haven’t for a long time in regards to Doctor Who. Even though the episode had its faults, it did hark back to a simpler era of the show.

Maybe it was the return of John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, but I had an urge to go back and experience it all again.

Torchwood – ‘Miracle Day’ Review

One day, everyone on earth stops dying. But it soon becomes clear that this is far from the miracle that it first seemed.

It’s up to what’s left of Torchwood to solve the case – with help from a few new American friends.

Torchwood – Season 1 Review

I feel like Torchwood has kinda got a bad reputation since it aired. Billed as the “adult” version of Doctor Who, the show lived up to the description. It’s full of the sort of violence, swearing, and sex that would make The Doctor blush. And yeah, some of it’s pretty silly. And a lot of it hasn’t aged particularly well. But once you get past that, it’s a really fun science fiction show with a consistent first season – with a good number of episodes that are truly superb.

Doctor Who – “Ascension of The Cybermen” Review

The penultimate episode of season 12 of Doctor Who may have somehow left us with more questions than answers as we hurtle into next weeks finale, but it was a fantastic episode all the same.

Whether the writing team can stick the landing next week with all of these questions up in the air is something we’ll have to wait for but ‘Ascension of The Cybermen’ was a clever and thrilling episode of TV.

Doctor Who – ‘Can You Hear Me?’ Review

Team TARDIS are split up this week, as The Doc drops off the group for a return trip to Sheffield. And this episode has what you’ve come to expect from Doctor Who; science fiction nonsense, spectacle, aliens and monsters (some of the best we’ve had in a while too). But it’s far more concerned with the well-being of the companions, something the show all too rarely touches upon. And we discover that when these guys aren’t battling intergalactic threats, they’re fighting their own demons back home.
