Doctor Who – Series 5 Rewatch and Review

I’ll admit that I was weary about David Tennant’s regeneration into Matt Smith. Smith is a phenomenal actor, but I had a few reservations about his time on the show. It was during these years that the show really blew up, becoming a big deal across the pond and cementing the reputation of the actors and creators. But as with things like this, when the goofy, nerdy thing that you like reaches the mainstream, it stops feeling like your thing. Suddenly you have to share it with the rest of the world.

But upon rewatching the first of Smith’s series as the Eleventh Doctor, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

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.

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.

Torchwood – Season 1 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.

Doctor Who – ‘Can You Hear Me?’ 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.
