I might as well start this review by saying I absolutely loved this episode. My favourite episode of series 10 so far and proves to me once again why Jamie Mathieson is one of my favourite writers for New Who (along with Sarah Dollard, Toby Whithouse and Peter Harness). This is also one of my favourite Capaldi episodes that’s been written so, to conclude, it’s getting a perfect score! If you want to find out why I loved it so much then read on!  Continue reading “Doctor Who SERIES 10 Episode 5 – Oxygen REVIEW”

Doctor Who SERIES 10 Episode 4 – Knock, Knock REVIEW

Let me get one thing straight, I love Doctor Who – obvi, because I’m writing this blog, duh! I also love horror, massive fan and coincidentally I wrote my undergraduate dissertation of horror in Doctor Who. However, one thing which I love so much, and has as much of a place in my hearts as a show about an alien time traveller, is a show called Scooby-Doo, Where are You? and mash these three things I love together and you get a throughly enjoyable episode in what is building up to be Peter Capaldi’s strongest season. (PS, by the way, also a small bit of a Little Mix fan – appreciated the inclusion).

Doctor Who finally came back to our TV screens last night, April 15th, and what a fun adventure we were given. It was really great to see the show in such a stripped back, simple form, especially with Pearl Mackie as the amazingly likeable Bill Potts. Just a heads up, this review will contain spoilers.

Defending the Capaldi Era

maxresdefault.jpgIt’s common knowledge that the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who has been met with a mixed reaction. Portions of the fandom love it and feel it was the direction the show needed to go in following the 50th anniversary, whereas others feel it was too vastly different from what had come before with Tennant and Smith that they were instantly put off. Then there are the unfortunate people stuck in the middle who can see the potential his era has but often feel that the writing doesn’t match his calibre of acting. I sometimes fall in the middle. This article is going to be a defense of certain aspects his era i.e. characters, and I will address some of the criticism which have been aimed towards his time in the TARDIS and hopefully get people to see it from a different angle, and perhaps make people think of giving it another chance.
