Doctor Who Flux: The Sontaran War

“War of the Sontarans” Feels Like The Best Of Old And New “Who”

“Doctor Who: Flux” manages something we haven’t seen for a while on the show. The pacing is tight, and the cliffhangers are genuine shockers that leave the audience wanting more. That isn’t a complaint about the quality of the last few seasons. It’s just the difference between self-contained, for the most part, episodes and an […]

Doctor Who The Halloween Apocalypse

“The Halloween Apocalypse” Is A Mostly Strong Launch For “Doctor Who”

“The Halloween Apocalypse” manages, mainly, to deliver what you want from an opening episode of “Doctor Who.” Part one of a six-part serialized season, “The Halloween Apocalypse” lays out what we can expect coming up. However, attention to our main characters seems to be missing still, a criticism often lobbed at the Chibnall years of […]

“Doctor Who: Can You Hear Me?” Review

For a season that is promising big revelations, we haven’t had a lot to go on. You almost wonder if some of the discoveries will wait for another series. Hopefully, the next episode won’t be as forgettable as this. It would be nice to see some of the points make their return before the 2 part finale.

Fugitive Of The Judoon

‘Fugitive of the Judoon’ packs a season’s worth of jaw-dropping moments into one of the tightest hours we’ve had in a while. Arcs in the world of the show can be dicey with the payoff not being as exciting as the clues. Hopefully, Chris Chibnall is up to the task. He’s given us a lot to work with so far. It’s sure to satisfy those still longing for the explosive moment to explosive moment of the David Tennant years. It also does what ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror’ failed to do and trusts that character growth can make an interesting story.

Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror

Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror

‘Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror’ introduces the Doctor to Tesla and Thomas Edison. One of the hallmarks of ‘Doctor Who,’ besides a base under siege and running down corridors, is meeting historical characters. And really, you can’t do a show about time travel without bumping into some famous people from the past. This week it’s […]

Orphan 55

Orphan 55 Review

After all of the surprises contained in ‘Spyfall,’ I expected that ‘Orphan 55’ might be a bit slower. Instead, ‘Orphan 55’ is non-stop action, just at the price of a coherent plot-line. It gets the ideas it wants to introduce across, but the elements never come together to form a good story. The addition of […]

Doctor Who - Spyfall

‘Doctor Who – Spyfall’ Review

I chose to wait for both episodes of ‘Doctor Who – Spyfall’ to air before reviewing them. I didn’t want to engage in the speculation that comes with a cliffhanger. Based on some of the guessing flying around the internet, I think I made the right choice. So what does the start of Jodie Whittaker’s […]

The BBC Has Added Doctor Who To Its Christmas lineup

The trailer for the upcoming series 12 of ‘Doctor Who’ was a pleasant enough surprise this past weekend (you can see the teaser for that premiere here.) Now the BBC has even more good news for fans of the show. The BBC has added ‘Doctor Who’ to its Christmas lineup! Not only that, but there […]

New Years Day Doctor Who Leaves Mostly Superficial Resolution

One of the problems with the more dramatic side of ‘Doctor Who’ is it can be difficult to tell how deep to go.  Family drama can especially be difficult.  This is after all intended to be a children’s show, so you don’t want to bore them with too much detail but not enough might not get […]
