Doctor Who – Series 3 Rewatch and Review

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.

Doctor Who – Series 2 Rewatch and Review

This series marks the first proper appearance of David Tennant’s incarnation of The Doctor.

Lovecraft Country – “Meet Me In Daegu” 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.

Elsewhere, Tic and Leti get closer than ever in the aftermath of Montrose’s terrible decision.
