“I think we’d better pit our wits against them and defeat them” – #WhoReviews: Classic Series 2

Picture2

I’m going to be honest, this series was a chore to get through. The series’ 39 episodes took me more than a year to watch because I genuinely couldn’t be bothered. I know it was the 60’s, and I do try my best to appreciate and review the show for what it is, but it’s hard to find the motivation to sit through a story arc when the production quality is just so bad.

“Our destiny is in the stars, so let’s go and search for it” – #WhoReviews: Classic Series 1

Picture4

I knew this was going to be rubbish. Television has come a long way in 50 years, and Doctor Who was really at the start of it all. I knew I would have to take all this into account.

‘Kill the Moon’ (S08E07) just finished airing and I couldn’t stop myself from rushing to my computer to type up a big gushy post about it because MOTHER OF GOD that was the best episode in years.

The Doctor can’t always be whimsically getting into fisticuffs with a fictional character in Sherwood Forest or saving London from gassy aliens in human meat suits. We come for the awesome, stay for the feels, but a lot of the time, I feel anyway, we endure the whimsy. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s cringe, I’m sure a lot of us can agree like that.

#WhoReviews – What everyone is saying about the Season 8 Premiere

Picture19

First of all…FINALLY! Though it has only been eight months since the last episode of Doctor Who (which, for Whovians, is not a long time at all) but the anticipation has really been something. New series, new Doctor, and for the first time in a long time, we didn’t really have much of an idea where the show was headed. A lot of loose ends were tied up last year: River Song’s story seems to have (nearly) come to a close, we know who Clara is, we know a lot more about the Doctor (though still not why his name is such a guarded secret!) and all about Trenzalore & the true fate of Gallifrey. That reminds me, I should add a spoiler warning to this post.
