Doctor Who Special: The Legend of the Sea Devils

The BBC first released a one-minute clip on Twitter on Saturday, 2nd April revealing the next Doctor Who ‘Special’. It’s been a while since anything Who-related has been marketed and this was an important episode for a number of reasons: First, it will be Jodie Whittaker’s penultimate appearance as our time-travelling hero.

TV: Doctor Who – Series 13, Chapter 5: Survivors of the Flux

I was able to watch it live. It went out at 6.25pm on BBC 1 and ran for 50 minutes. After last week’s mega-cliffhanger, this story could only get more complex – but in tonight’s penultimate story, at least we got some answers. (but I’m not revealing them here!) Excerpt… Synopsis… As the forces of …

TV: Doctor Who – Series 13, Chapter 2: War of the Sontarans

After an impressive start last week to the beginning of series 13 with The Halloween Apocalypse, would tonight’s episode chapter impress? The sixty-minuter (that’s a long one!) premièred at 6.15pm on BBC1 (but I wasn’t able to watch it live because we were out at Rosi’s surprise 60th Party at Ise Lodge Community Centre). Some …

TV: Doctor Who – Series 13, Episode 1: The Halloween Apocalypse

Unless you’ve been caught in a massive temporal disturbance, you won’t have missed the plugs for the latest series of Doctor Who – it was shown just before every BBC peak-time programme over the past fortnight. It’s now old news that this will be Jodie Whittaker’s final season – and for me, it can’t come …
