Doctor Who 11×08 Review: The Witchfinders

I have mentioned here before that I love Doctor Who episodes that are set in the past. It brings historical characters we only know from books and it shapes them, makes them human, not just a name. But to be honest, I never expected to find James I so enjoyable. But that is inevitable if he is being played by Alan Cumming. Continue reading

Welcome, once more, to the show that proves that the bad guy is never the alien or the machine, but the human behind it. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×06 Review: Demons of the Punjab

A bit late with this review, and yet, I wanted to write it before the next episode comes in and I forget all about doing this one. This new Doctor is growing on me, but I didn’t expect to like her episodes so much. They get better and better, and my favourite part is that, well, it’s a return to the Doctor’s origins. You know, the historian type who wants you to learn about our world’s past. And succeed they do, don’t you think? Continue reading

Outlander 4×02 ‘Do No Harm’: Live Recap

As is usual in Outlander, terrible things happen in ‘Do No Harm’ and everyone is miserable, because the Frasers never have more than five minutes of happiness before someone tries to murder, rape or execute one of the characters. The 18th century is grim. But let’s go! Continue reading

Outlander 4×01 ‘America The Beautiful’: Live Recap

I have come to realise that the only show other than Doctor Who that I am currently watching is Outlander. Seeing as I have nothing else to review, I thought I would take advantage of this other time-travelling show and start writing about it now that it has only just begun again. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×05 Review: The Tsuranga Conundrum

Welcome to the fifth adventure of Thirteen, the episode whose title sounds like we are watching The Big Bang Theory. If I have to be honest, this is so far my least favourite of the five, but it is also the one with my favourite monster, the ultra-cute, Lord Nibbler-like Pting. Even the name sounds adorable. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×04 Review: Arachnids in the UK

I must admit that standalone episodes that are about a monster we’ve never heard of before are never my cup of tea, but hats off to Chris Chibnall, because the freshness of his writing made me enjoy this episode thoroughly. And I hate spiders. Continue reading
