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.

Peter Capaldi’s portrayal of the Doctor has been one of my all time favourite in the shows history. Then again I love every single actor who has played the role. With his final episode looming, we need to stop and take into consideration how the end of his (and Moffat’s) era might come about. Earlier today, we got the release of another epic Series 10 trailer, which ended with quite a jaw dropping clip of Twelve beginning to regenerate. This only fuels the rumours that he will be leaving at the end of Series 10 rather than the Christmas special. I’m going to offer my thoughts on how I think Capaldi should bow out of Doctor Who in 2017. Continue reading “How Twelve Should Leave”
Okay, I’ll just make it clear right here, I absolutely adore Michelle Gomez and I could watch her as Missy every day. I found this great video of Michelle Gomez performing stand-up at The Comedy Store, and it’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen all day. If you want a laugh, give it a watch. I like to think this is what Missy gets up to in her spare time.
12 years ago today a whole new generation were introduced to the Doctor, the TARDIS and Rose Tyler. Returning for a full series for the first time in almost 16 years, Rose was watched by 10.81million viewers and proved that Doctor Who still had that amazing appeal it had at the height of it’s popularity.

It’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.
