December 26, 2017

**SPOILER WARNING!** The following contains spoilers regarding the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Twice Upon a Time”. And with that, the sprawling, often brilliant but mostly wildly inconsistent [Steven] Moffat run on Doctor Who is over!  …Oh, right.

Film Review: Paddington 2 (UK, 2017) guarantees to put a smile on your face

December 14, 2017

I don’t know how the first Paddington film became as good as it is. Considering that the trailers made it look awful and the late cast changes in regards to who provides the voice of the titular bear, I was actually expecting the worst. But to everyone’s shock, it turned out to be one of […]

Exclusive: British actor Samuel Anderson talks the differences between theatre and TV production and working on Doctor Who

July 3, 2016

It’s not very often that a new supporting actor on Doctor Who manages to make enough of an impression to be voted the best male guest star in the series for that year.

June 24, 2016

Fans of Doctor Who will recognise Ingrid Oliver as Petronella Osgood, though if you’re a fan of British comedy you may have caught Oliver in a number of other productions over the last decade.

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 12 “Hell Bent” (UK, 2015)

December 12, 2015

After last weeks goosebump-inducing episode “Heaven Sent”, this weeks episode “Hell Bent” had a lot to live up to. It had to deliver a compelling conclusion to the season, solve all this hybrid nonsense, and would finally reintroduce the eagerly awaited Gallifery whose disappearance has been teased for several seasons now. With so much to cover, it […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 11 “Heaven Sent”

November 30, 2015

Last weeks episode “Face The Raven” saw the departure of long-term companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and the return of the angry and uncompromising Doctor that I’ve missed so much. This weeks episode “Heaven Sent” is set only mere seconds from where we left off last week, the opening sequence detailing that the Doctor has […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 10 “Face The Raven” (UK, 2015)

November 24, 2015

Clara Oswald’s death is something that has been foreshadowed incessantly throughout this season. We’ve caught glimpses into the Doctor understanding that he will inevitably outlive his best friend; we’ve understood that Clara has become dangerously similar to the Doctor; and in the opening chords of this weeks episode “Face The Raven”, it seems that Clara […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 9 “Sleep No More” (UK, 2015)

November 16, 2015

I think I’ve missed something this entire season; when everyone praised “The Witch’s Familiar” as being one of the best episodes in Doctor Who history, I gave it one star. This week, fans are amassed with disappointment after “Sleep No More” – it seems that I’m the only person in all of time space who loved the […]

DVD Review: Doctor Who Series 9: Part 1 (UK, 2015)

November 12, 2015

I must confess, I geek out a little when there’s Doctor Who DVD’s about; I’ve got every boxset from New-Who (though I’m still working on collecting all the classics). Every Christmas I would receive the latest season, using my holidays to productively nestle in and watch the entire season…twice. Doctor Who Series 9: Part 1 comes a little […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 8 “The Zygon Inversion” (UK, 2015)

November 9, 2015

“Since when is Doctor Who political?”, says my Tom Baker adoring mother after seeing the credits roll for “The Zygon Inversion”. Bewildered and a little confused as any long-term fan of the show would be, my mum encapsulates a stark change in the landscape of Doctor Who – that it has the power to transcend […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 7 “The Zygon Invasion” (UK, 2015)

November 2, 2015

The last time we were treated to an appearance by the Zygons was in the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, titled “The Day of the Doctor”. Foregrounding the episode in recounting that episode, “The Zygon Invasion” had much to live up to. If you don’t recall, “The Day of the Doctor” explored how the Doctor(s) […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 6 “The Woman Who Lived” (UK, 2015)

October 27, 2015

Another week; another shitty monster. This week marks the third conclusion to Doctor Who’s consecutive two-parter trend, and just like the others, reiterates that it seems that the show may have lost its spark. Last week, we were left with a huge cliffhanger in “The Girl Who Died”; the Doctor left Ashildr (Maisie Williams) immortal, which, through cause and […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 5 “The Girl Who Died” (UK, 2015)

October 19, 2015

Upon first seeing that picture of Maisie Williams in the TARDIS, I was overwhelmed with excitement; ‘the clash of the fandoms’, I call it – Game of Thrones meets Doctor Who. Combined with my high expectations of her ridiculous acting ability and my dissatisfaction of the past few Who episodes, I had mixed expectations for the fifth […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 4 “Before The Flood” (UK, 2015)

October 13, 2015

“Before The Flood”, the fourth episode of season 9, opened with something that I haven’t quite seen in Doctor Who before – the Doctor talking directly to the audience, breaking the fourth wall. The entire first sequence consisted of Peter Capaldi explaining the Bootstrap Paradox. It was fun, unpredictable, and really got you thinking; if a time traveler goes […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 3 “Under The Lake” (UK, 2015)

October 5, 2015

There are some formulas that, despite it’s fifty-something year reign, Doctor Who can’t seem to shake. The premise for “Under The Lake” is one that we’ve seen time and time again – The Doctor exploring the mystery of a derelict and isolated facility (see “The Impossible Planet” and “Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead”). Yet, despite its repetitive […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 2 “The Witch’s Familiar” (UK, 2015)

September 29, 2015

After last weeks huge season opener, “The Witch’s Familiar” had a lot to answer for – we needed to know what the Doctor decided to do regarding boy Davros, how Missy and Clara would come back from the dead (because they have to), and what would come of Skaro – the planet of the Daleks […]

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 9 Episode 1 “The Magician’s Apprentice” (UK, 2015)

September 20, 2015

It seems that the Doctor Who Gods read my article on the things I really want to happen this season, gifting me with more Missy, a two-parter, a dark tone, and the mother of all nods to past seasons – bringing into question something that the Fourth Doctor said many moons ago – who created Davros?

TV Review: Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 9 “Flatline” (UK, 2014)

October 20, 2014

If there is one thing Doctor Who has become stellar at over the years, it’s throwing a spanner into the works, just when the audience is comfortable and thinks they know what is happening. “Flatline” is that point for Season 8. While it takes the ‘Doctor Lite’ format and shows off Clara more than ever as a strong and […]

October 14, 2014

So here we are at the midway point of the eighth season of revived Who. And what a ride it’s been. I’m not sure about anyone else but I feel like Capaldi’s first season as The Doctor has flown by and Jenna? Who’d have thought Clara would have developed into the character we’ve seen her become, especially in the last […]
