When Torchwood came back for its second series, it had it all figured out. The adult elements had been fine-tuned, the stories were more confident, and there was a real sense of self-awareness about the whole thing. For the most part, it’s really excellent science fiction.Read more "Torchwood – Season 2 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.Read more "Torchwood – Season 1 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.Read more "Doctor Who – “Ascension of The Cybermen” Review"
After the high concept shenanigans of last week’s episode, this week’s episode of Doctor Who was a seemingly straight forward affair; part ghost story, part famous-historical-figure episode.
As the episode went on, however, it became clear that maybe it wasn’t as straight forward as it first seemed.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘The Haunting of Villa Diodati’ 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.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Can You Hear Me?’ Review"
The universe-shattering events of last week take a backseat, as The Doc tries to once again save the human race from a problem that they’ve kinda got themselves into.
We should’ve been more careful with those micro plastics, guys.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Praxeus’ Review"
