Following the cliffhanger ending of the seventh series, Doctor Who had two specials before the next series could begin. The first of these is “The Day of the Doctor”, which is still the biggest thing the show has ever done. This was followed at Christmas by “The Time of the Doctor”, which saw Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor take his final bow.Read More Doctor Who – The Specials (2013) Rewatch and Review
Series 7 of Doctor Who is often considered to be a bit messy. Like the previous series, it’s once again quite literally a series of two halves – with the first half following the Amy and Rory and the second half picking up with new companion Clara, played by Jenna Coleman. Because of this, the series often feels like two separate seasons, and not one consistent thing. And with Amy and Rory’s tragic exit at the halfway mark, combined with The Doctor’s own departure at the end of the two specials, this is a series of goodbyes. But that doesn’t mean it’s not still incredibly entertaining.Read More Doctor Who – Series 7 Rewatch and Review
Series 6 of Doctor Who is when we first discovered what new showrunner Steven Moffat would be like as a showrunner. We got a taste of his wibbly-wobbly approach to storytelling in the previous series, but this is where he really shifts into gear.

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.Read More Doctor Who – Series 5 Rewatch and Review
‘Deep Breath’ “I don’t know, but I’ll probably blame the English”. Doctor Who is back and it’s better than ever. Well, better than the last series at least. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the Matt Smith years, but by the end of his run things were getting a little stale and the episodes just didn’t […]Read More Doctor Who ‘Deep Breath’ and ‘Into the Dalek’ Review
“The Man who Regrets and The Man who Forgets.” Well that was good. The end. Seriously though, it was very good. I’m not sure how much hype there was for this, sure there was a lot online but I know the reaction to last season was mixed, at least among my friends. That being said, […]Read More Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor Review
This week’s episode was frankly a bit of a mess. It had many good elements as well as some really bad ones. BUT, first and foremost, this episode was about the return of the Cyberman. And was it a successful return? Well, sort of. I’ve never cared for Neil Gaiman. I’ve never really been interested in anything he’s written […]Read More Doctor Who – “Nightmare in Silver”
I don’t review Doctor Who but today I thought I’d make an exception. I’ve been seeing a bit of hate for the most recent episode (although reviews have been glowingly positive) but I really loved it. So let’s dive right in to the Crimson ‘orror.Read More Doctor Who – “The Crimson Horror”
