Claridán (Javier Collado) and Violante (Lucía Quintana)

Lope de Vega was one of the most womanizing and at the same time most romantic figures of Spanish culture. It’s not a surprise that he was one of the most important members of what is known as the Siglo de Oro (Spanish Golden Age), Continue reading

Classic Who Retrospective: The Dalek Invasion of Earth

The Dalek Invasion of Earth (2)

This won’t be a surprising statement, but I must say that, regardless of the length of the serial or whatever flaws it might have, The Dalek Invasion of Earth is worth it for two simple reasons: the scene in which the Doctor bids farewell to Susan and well, the Daleks crossing Westminster Bridge!

Classic Who Retrospective: Planet of Giants

doctor-who-planet-of-giants_610

Well, that was nice. I can safely say that Planet of Giants is one of those serials I wouldn’t mind watching several times. It was well paced (especially towards the end) and it gave us a plot that other shows wouldn’t have been able to pull off, not even nowadays. Continue reading

Classic Who Retrospective: The Sensorites

p00v2b44All right, I’m just going to be brave and say it: I didn’t really like The Sensorites. Oh, but let me explain. Had this six-part serial been comprised into a two or even three-parter, it would have been okay. But this dragged the story for too long, including unnecessary scenes and expanding others that did NOT need so much screen time. For crying out loud, episode 4 has Ian lying half death the entire time and episode 5 doesn’t even feature Barbara! I’m surprised it didn’t take me longer to finish The Sensorites. Continue reading

My Favourite Scenes: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

It is probably too ambitious to call this My Favourite Scenes, mainly because I have more than a thousand to choose from, and if I decided to write about all of them, I would never see the end of it. So every now and then I will just write about the first scene that comes to mind that I remember fondly, for one reason or another. Continue reading
