An Adventure in Space and Time (2013) – Terry McDonough

  Even as I write this, the airing of the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who ticks closer, and I cannot wait, knowing I get to see David Tennant, Matt Smith and John Hurt on the screen as various incarnations of the Doctor, as well as the return of Billie Piper as Rose (in some…

Doctor Who S07E13 – The Name of The Doctor

  Steven Moffat pens the 7th series finale, and I’m a little divided on it. A lot of it almost seemed overly sentimental, as if it were trying to pull at heartstrings, and that kind of bothers me. It’s all well and good if you earn it, but I’m sadly of the mind that they…

Doctor Who S07E13 – Nightmare In Silver

  If I had known last week during the teaser ad that Neil Gaiman was penning this week’s episode then all my worries would have been allayed. I just saw kids in the TARDIS and I was a little worried. I shouldn’t have. Everything in this episode seems to work on full thrusters, and so…

All bundled up in a script…

Doctor Who S07E11 – Journey To The Center of The TARDIS

  I’m sorry to say it. After the goodwill last week’s episode built up, this one just kind of squandered it again. I just couldn’t get into this episode, I liked the glimpses we got of other rooms in the TARDIS, but over all, I just felt let down. And I have to tell you……

Doctor Who S07E10 – Hide

  I realize I’m a week behind on this one, but hey, I was on vacation and covering a film festival! But what an ep! The cloister bell rings, there’s a knock 4 times, there’s ghosts and monsters, some fun banter, and a little more investigation into the mysterious companion. Neil Cross penned this episode,…
