After last week’s misfire of an episode, I was nervous for this one. But Jodie Whittaker’s era of Doctor Who has been commended for its historical episodes, a kind of episode that the show all-too-often messes up. And with an interesting premise around Nikola Tesla and America’s gilded age, this episode has a lot going for it.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror’ Review"
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"
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"
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"
The Daleks are back! Or at least one gross super Dalek is. This New Year’s special is surprisingly solid, with great performances and a fun story. Hopefully this will end the often-dreadful Christmas specials for good.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘Resolution’ Review"
It’s finale time! And with the promise of guest star Mark Addy, this is primed to be a good episode.
Sadly, it struggles under the weight of all it’s ideas and consequently is a bit of a mess, albeit an entertaining one.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos’ Review"
I can see why so little was revealed about this episode ahead of time. Go in blind because it is a wonderfully ludicrous and bizarre bit of science fiction.Read more "Doctor Who – ‘It Takes You Away’ Review"
