Broadchurch – Season 1

  Yes, I’m behind on coming across this series, but being able to watch the entire first season in two sittings, made for a beautiful, heart- wrenching and stunning experience. Doctor Who favourites David Tennant, and Arthur Darvill alongside Olivia Colman, Jodie Whitaker, David Bradley and Charlotte Rampling take us to a remote small town…

Doctor Who S07E05 – The Angels Take Manhattan

  ***SPOILERS BELOW*** This is the episode where we say goodbye to the Ponds. It’s also the episode that showed me why I love Moffat’s writing, because no matter what some tend to think of his stories, and this one is a corker, you’re emotionally attached to these characters. You feel for them, you worry…

Doctor Who S07E04 – The Power of Three

  This isn’t your typical Doctor Who story, and I think that’s why I like it as much as I do. Penned by Chris Chibnall this gentle, character focussed episode takes the Ponds out of the Doctor’s life, and puts him into theirs. It’s no secret that this is the penultimate episode for the Ponds,…

Doctor Who S07x03 – A Town Called Mercy

  This week’s episode of Doctor Who, written by Toby Whithouse, isn’t neccessarily a misstep, it’s just the weakest episode of Series 7, sure there have been only 3, but this one just doesn’t fire on all thrusters. The concept is fun enough, the Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) get…

Doctor Who S07x02 – Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

  Genocide, piracy, Egyptian queens, big game hunters, the Ponds, stupid robots, Harry Potter alumni, and DINOSAURS!!! This was so my kind of Doctor Who episode! Penned by Chris Chibnall this episode is just good fun! The Doctor (Matt Smith)¬†throws together a gang (“I’ve never had a gang.”) when he recieves an alert from the…
