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 […]

“Variant” Wants You To Trust Loki

The writers and producers of “Loki” continue to show their love affair with “Doctor Who”. First, there are the statues of the Time Keepers, who look like they would fit right in on Gallifrey. Then there’s the Theremin use in the soundtrack, which rings back to the original Delia Derbyshire theme for “Doctor Who”. Finally, […]

The Glorious Purpose Of Loki

“Glorious Purpose” has the distinct mission of giving Loki a reason to be alive still. After all, we saw him die at the hands of Thanos in 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War.” Unfortunately, the neck snap seemed permanent at the time, and indeed, after all the time meddling the Avengers did, Loki didn’t make a further […]

“As I Have Always Been” Fascinated With Time Travel

Daisy (Chloe Bennet) is our lucky looper. The Zephyr has made its way into a time storm and can’t get out. Each loop brings it closer and closer to demise. The only people who can fix the situation are Enoch (Joel Stoffer) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge). They have it hard-wired not to help so as not to give away Fitz’s location though. Meanwhile, Coulson (Clark Gregg) can retain his memory and coaches Daisy on how to get closer to solving the problem.

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.

“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 […]
