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 3: Once, Upon Time

After last week’s four-star episode – The War of the Sontarans, tonight, another familiar foe (or is it foes?) became part of the story… We’re now exactly halfway through this series and there are still plenty of unanswered questions.

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 …

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 …
