A fun vampire romp that is sure to please audiences, the cast is stacked with recognisable faces and names, Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Eve Myles (Torchwood), Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Dexter Fletcher (Band of Brothers)…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) – Turn Left, and The Stolen Earth

Turn Left, written by Russell T. Davies is the Doctor-lite episode of the season, and first debuted on 21 June, 2008. Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) finds herself in a bit of an alternative history. The Doctor (Tennant) is dead after the events of The Runaway Bride. She begins to encounter former companion Rose Tyler (Billie…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) – Utopia, and The Sound of Drums

We begin the race to the season finale this week with Utopia. Written by Russell T. Davies and airing on 16 June, 2017, the more I reflect on this one, the more I think it merely serves as just an extended prologue for the two-part finale. The Doctor (Tennant), Martha (Freema Agyeman) and Captain Jack…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) – Fear Her and Army of Ghosts

The Doctor (Tennant) and Rose (Billie Piper) find themselves in a rather unusual adventure during the 2012 Olympics. Fear Her was written by Matthew Graham and first aired on 24 June, 2006. Arriving in an English neighbourhood, the Doctor realises something strange is going on, when children seem to be disappearing up and down the…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) РThe Satan Pit and Love & Monsters 

The Doctor (Tennant) dives into The Satan pit to confront a timeless evil, while Rose (Billie Piper) and the crew of the Sanctuary Base attempt to elude the possessed Ood. Written by Matt Jones, and airing on 10 June, 2006, the conclusion to the story is surprisingly solid considering how close it dances to the…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) – New Earth and Tooth and Claw

The Doctor (Tennant) and Rose (Billie Piper) begin their adventures together, as they travel to New Earth. Written by Russell T. Davies, Rose started her travels with Ten on 15 April, 2006. Tennant owns the role right from the off. He’s fun, excitable, and clever. To show that the Doctor was still the same character,…

Doctor Who (Christoper Eccleston) – The Unquiet Dead and Aliens of London

The Doctor (Eccleston) and Rose (Billie Piper) travel back to Cardiff (an in-joke because that is where the series shoots), 1869. There they quickly find themselves embroiled in alien mystery, and chatting with Charles Dickens (Simon Callow) in The Unquiet Dead. Written by Mark Gatiss, with an original airdate of 9 April, 2005, this episode…

Toronto After Dark – Inbred – Alex Chandon

Inbred, the second feature of last night’s double feature at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, was a crowd-pleasing over the top gory and bloody film that was a delightful take on the oft-revisited hillbilly cannibal genre. I was initially put in mind of the unnerving Torchwood¬†episode, Countrycide, but soon enough found myself sinking right…

Fan Expo 2012

Here it is August 2012! And it’s almost Fan Expo time, my favorite time of year! The Mind Reels, just shy of it’s 1 year birthday, coming up in October (can you believe it?!) has been invited to attend this year’s Fan Expo and cover it as Media. Sue and I are delighted. I’ve gone…
