Classic Doctor Who – Now With 70% Less Filler

These shortened episodes make a great introduction to the Classic era of “Doctor Who.” I’ve been a fan since the mid-’70s when the show found its way to the US via PBS. The pacing of classic-era serials can be tedious, especially considering that modern stories take 45 minutes or less.

Well, it turns out there is a solution to this problem. Just head over to Humble Bundle, and you can get access to a plethora of “Doctor Who” goodies.

“The Timeless Children” – Doctor Who Series Finale Review

Could it be possible the BBC is gearing up to have more than one Doctor at a time? As the Master once said, “A cosmos without the Doctor scarcely bears thinking about.” A cosmos with two at a time, though? “The Timeless Children” introduces endless possibilities.

“Ascension Of The Cybermen” – “Doctor Who” Finale Review Part One

‘Ascension of the Cybermen’ really feels like it isn’t leaving enough room for the final episode to settle everything up. At least, not in a satisfactory way. The question of who Brendon is has too many possibilities. To solve it seems like it will take too much time away from The Doctor and The Master. Unless it’s all intertwined somehow, which really could change everything as the Master has promised. I’m interested in watching what “The Timeless Children” will bring. I’m ready for the too quick wrap-up that has plagued so many Doctor Who finales as well.

“Doctor Who – The Haunting Of Villa Diodati” Review

“Doctor Who” in recent years has tried to tackle horror to mixed results. “The Haunting Of Villa Diodati” gets right down to the creation of horror stories, introducing us to the night Mary Shelley was inspired to create “Frankenstein.” Throw in a classic “Doctor Who” villain that was inspired by Shelley’s creation, and you have […]

“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.

Praxeus

‘Praxeus’ Review

‘Praxeus’ is an ok episode, but it could have been better. It’s an episode overpacked with characters and locations that will leave you feeling a bit empty. This late in the season, there are a lot of threads floating without too many answers. Hopefully, the development of the relationship between the Doctor and her companions won’t continue to suffer. Otherwise, it might work better to have the Doctor traveling alone. At least that way, it would leave more space for character development.

Fugitive of the Judoon

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 […]
