Doctor Who – Series 9 Rewatch and Review

After finding his footing in the previous series, Peter Capaldi returns to the role of the Doctor with a slightly different approach. The grumpy, harsh Scottish man has gone, and we’re left with a Time Lord who’s more akin to a fun, spacefaring uncle. He’s a bit wackier, his outfits reflect this, and he seems to be having more fun.

Jenna Coleman’s Clara is also back for the ride, though she is destined not to survive the series.

Doctor Who – Series 8 Rewatch and Review

So Matt Smith is gone and in his place we have an old, angry Scottish bloke. It’s a real heel turn for the character of the Doctor and really helps to keep things fresh, and it doesn’t hurt that Peter Capaldi appears to have been born to play this role.

But that doesn’t mean it’s not still incredibly entertaining.

In this episode the Doctor makes a joke after shooting someone, stating ‘We’re on Gallifrey! “Death” is Time Lord for “man flu”.’ Well it seems this is the thinking of Steven Moffat when it comes to his characters too. We all […]

Doctor Who ‘Heaven Sent’ Review

“Clara said; don’t take revenge. You should know I don’t always listen.”  Well as experimental episodes go, this was certainly a step up from Sleep No More, and I was one of the rare few who liked that episode. Capaldi’s Doctor all by himself, alone in a big spooky castle with only a monster for company. You’d […]
