Doctor Who – The Specials (2008–2010) Rewatch and Review

After the end of series four it was official, David Tennant would be leaving the show, along with showrunner and mastermind behind its revival, Russell T. Davies. To give the production team enough time to prepare for the new series, 2009 didn’t have a full series of the show. Instead, we got five specials across the year, ending with David Tennant’s departure. Let’s have a look at each of these in turn.

Lost – Season 1 Rewatch and Review

It’s been almost 17 years since Lost first aired and TV has changed a hell of a lot since then. The whole TV landscape has turned upside down but has any show since Lost got us all hooked in the same way Lost did? The mysteries, the characters and their flashbacks, Michael Giacchino’s outstanding score – Lost was truly in a league of it’s own. But is Lost still as good as it once was, almost 20 years since it premiered? I’m going all the way back to the beginning to find out.

Doctor Who – Series 4 Rewatch and Review

There’s an argument for the fourth series of Doctor Who being the revival’s strongest. The show had more than found its footing by this point and this series is full of interesting episodes and ideas. On top of that, it has the biggest finale the show has ever done and possibly the best companion in Catherine Tate’s Donna Noble. 2008 was a very good year to be a Doctor Who fan.

The Stand (2020) Review

The reaction to the recent adaptation of The Stand has been mixed. On one hand, I understand the critics who said they found the show uneven, in terms of both tone and performances. But on the other, as a huge fan of the show, I’m left to wonder; what did anyone expect?

The show is bizarre and awkward at times, but so was the book. As an adaptation of one of the weirdest books of all time, The Stand does a damn good job capturing that “Stephen King feeling” that so many other adaptations fail at.

The Walking Dead – ‘Home Sweet Home’ Review

The Walking Dead is back! And in a strange turn of events, this isn’t the beginning of a new season – or the return after a mid-season break. No, this is the return of TWD for a bonus set of episodes, added on to the 16 episode run season 10 had, despite the fact that the season 10 ‘finale’ aired months ago. This unprecedented course of action is due to the unprecedented times we live in and the show runners do a great job of bringing us the zombie stories we love in the time of a pandemic. These episodes hopefully won’t feel tacked on; if this first episode is anything to go by then they certainly won’t.

Greenland (2020) Review

Greenland is the latest action vehicle from Gerard Butler. Helmed by his Angel Has Fallen director, Ric Roman Waugh, It follows Butler’s John Garrity and his family as they try to find safe haven before the end of the world. It sounds a hell of a lot like Roland Emmerich’s 2012 but surprisingly, Greenland has so much more to offer…

Doctor Who – Series 2 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.
