Doctor Who SERIES 10 Episode 6 – Extremis REVIEW

The tenth season of the post 2005 Doctor Who continues with another experimental episode by Steven Moffat, and I must admit it’s one of his best. After a string of back to basics episodes of Doctor Who that felt very much like a good reboot, this one is far more complex and deserves to be so now that viewers are eased back in and Bill has finally been fully established as a presence on the show. Read on for my review of “Extremis”  Continue reading “Doctor Who SERIES 10 Episode 6 – Extremis REVIEW”

Doctor Who SERIES 10 Episode 5 – Oxygen REVIEW

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 SERIES 10 Episode 1 – THE PILOT Review

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.

How Twelve Should Leave

134195.fd380b0e-37f7-4191-9d60-1c738f5a5c6dPeter 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”

Michelle Gomez Stand-Up

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.
