Doctor Who 10×9 Review: Empress of Mars

I must say something in advance: I love Mark Gatiss’s episodes, so I can’t be partial here. I know his scripts can be divisive, but I found ‘Empress of Mars’ to be true to the Doctor Who spirit and highly enjoyable. I’m not the only one to think this, am I? Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×02 Review: Time of Spies

I am a sucker for stories set in the World Wars, and there is something alluring about time travel shows or films that visit this period. Should something be changed? Would that alter the course of events? Should we kill Hitler? Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×8 Review: The Lie of the Land

Doctor Who always makes us viewers ponder existence, the effects of our actions and the very nature of humanity. It succeeds like no other show, and the resolution to the Orc Monk invasion gave us just that. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×01 Review: Time by Northwest

It might be hard to believe, but after a year of arduous negotiations, El Ministerio del Tiempo is finally back to our small screens! It comes with some casualties (Rodolfo Sancho, The Ministry’s Files), but let’s just be thankful it’s back, and we can complain about the rest afterwards. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×7 Review: The Pyramid at the End of the World

Like I’ve been saying for weeks, it seems as if Moffat has been collecting plenty of good ideas, hoarding them somewhere in his office, to then use them all at once for Capaldi’s final season. And what a season both of them are giving us. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×6 Review: Extremis

I will admit it: I was wrong. For weeks, I have been proclaiming that I was sure John Simm’s Master was inside the vault, and this sixth episode has confirmed that the person inside was, in fact, Missy -although she is also the Master, so I was sort of right, anyway. This early reveal definitely helps this series get more action, instead of dragging that mystery all the way to the finale. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×5 Review: Oxygen

Am I the only one who thinks Peter Capaldi should stay for at least one more season? He is killing it this year, and he deserves to shine after two series that may not have allowed him to do so -totally not blaming him, but a few scripts that didn’t do any favours to the show. Continue reading

Praise for Better Call Saul’s ‘Chicanery’

It is difficult for a show that already excels every week to have a truly outstanding episode. It happens to Better Call Saul the same way it happened to its predecessor, Breaking Bad. Always great episodes, always flawless, but oh boy, when a top one came along, it made the show even better. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×4 Review: Knock Knock

One of the key aspects of Doctor Who, besides, you know, aliens and such, is mystery. But not any kind of mystery: I’m talking about that spooky plotline that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end (remember Blink?), and that is pretty much what happens on “Knock Knock.” Continue reading
