Doctor Who 11×09 Review: It Takes You Away

There are times, when I am watching a TV show, or a film, or even reading a book, that I am not immediately hooked, but there is a twist halfway that is so gripping I have to see it through. Is it worth it, to endure the not-so-great to get to the juicy bits? Who knows, but that was definitely my case with this penultimate episode of the season. Continue reading

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

Doctor Who 11×07 Review: Kerblam!

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

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

Doctor Who 11×03 Review: Rosa

My favourite Doctor Who stories are those set in the past. We explore something we know, or we think we know, and then we get a timey wimey twist. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×02 Review: The Ghost Monument

I love me some cliffhangers. They leave me in suspense, and since Doctor Who is one of the few shows I get to watch on a weekly basis, instead of binge-watched, the wait is delightful. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×01 Review: ‘The Woman Who Fell To Earth’

Farewell, Scotsman; hello, Yorkshirewoman. An event we have been anticipating since the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor (some because they love watching the show, others because they wanted to complain about the new choice, whatever the outcome), the first adventure of number 13 (14, but we know how it works) feels as big as a movie and as charming as your regular ol’ Doc. Also, I loved everyone’s accent. Continue reading
