Series 3 of Doctor Who had a tough act to follow. Series 2 was on another level in terms of what we’d seen on television at the time, and this series had to step up its game. With a new companion in the fantastic Freema Agyeman, and plenty of new places to explore, the series definitely succeeds.Read More Doctor Who – Series 3 Rewatch and Review
This series marks the first proper appearance of David Tennant’s incarnation of The Doctor.
For fans of a certain age, Tennant will always be the best and most recognisable actor in the role. Eccleston perhaps didn’t stick around long enough, and for many, Matt Smith just wasn’t the same. David Tennant is The Doctor. And after watching this, his first series, you can see why he became the fan favourite.Read More Doctor Who – Series 2 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.Read More Doctor Who – Series 1 Rewatch and Review
“Everyone is a monster to someone. Since you are so convinced that I am yours. I will be it.” When Black Sails first aired back in 2014, comparisons were immediately made to Game of Thrones. And on the face of it, that comparison is fair – especially in the fact that both shows are overflowing with sex, violence, […]Read More Black Sails – Season 1 and 2 Review
HBO’s fantastically ambitious pulp series comes to an end in a messy but exciting finale full of ends and new beginnings.Read More Lovecraft Country – ‘Full Circle’ Review
The real-life 1921 massacre in Tulsa took centre stage in this week’s episode. Thanks to the recently discovered time machine – and newly-returned Hippolyta’s knowledge – Tic, Leti, and Montrose journey back to Tulsa to retrieve the book of names on the night it is destroyed.Read More Lovecraft Country – ‘Rewind 1921’ Review
The Walking Dead is back! Finally! Unfortunately, once this episode ends it’s taken away from us for another long stretch. This episode isn’t the start of a new season as one might expect at this time of year, instead it’s the long delayed season 10 finale – 6 months later than planned.Read More The Walking Dead – ‘A Certain Doom’ Review
On the hottest day of the summer, the characters of Lovecraft Country face the creepiest monster yet as all the secrets and plotting of the past seven episodes come together in preparation for the end. And hanging over it all is the recent brutal murder of Emmett Till and the shockwave that this horrible crime sends through the Black community.Read More Lovecraft Country – ‘Jig-A-Bobo’ Review
Episode six of Lovecraft Country takes us to South Korea on the eve of war. ‘Meet Me In Daegu” is interesting for a lot of reasons, but for me the most striking thing is that this episode uses nothing from the book on which the series is based. The other episodes have made some pretty significant departures from the source material, but this episode is the first one to move away from it completely. The book and its loose pulp story probably mean that no one is going to be too upset by the detour, and it allows the show to do some really crazy thing.Read More Lovecraft Country – “Meet Me In Daegu” Review
The show takes another step up this week as it delves into full-on (and horrific) body horror. Ruby makes a deal with the devil in order to live the life of a successful white woman, and she comes out of ‘Strange Case’ as an entirely different person – though it has nothing to do with her skin colour. Elsewhere, Tic and Leti get closer than ever in the aftermath of Montrose’s terrible decision.Read More Lovecraft Country – ‘Strange Case’ Review
