Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 10 – “The Timeless Children”

It’s the season finalé and there are a lot of unanswered questions! Hopefully, they’ll all be dealt with in tonight’s extended episode of 65 minutes! 🙄 The Interweb on fire… Predictably, the Interweb has been on fire this week, full of theories, counter-theories, rumours and counter-rumours about how it’s all going to turn out! But, …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 9 – “Ascension of the Cybermen”

The penultimate episode for this series – and it’s a two-parter! There’s been plenty of anticipation online for this one, so it was a bit of a bummer that I wasn’t able to watch it live – I’m writing this, the day after, having successfully avoided any spoilers online. SYNOPSIS: It’s the aftermath of the …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 8 – “The Haunting of Villa Diodati”

Another pre-credit sequence – after last week’s, that’s two in a row! 👍 SYNOPSIS:Lake Geneva, 1816. Lord Byron and the Shelleys prepare for a night telling ghost stories, but their villa proves to have ghostly presences all its own. This episode was written by (newcomer to Who) Maxine Alderton. A great story tonight with an …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 7 – “Can You Hear Me?”

I found last week’s episode – Praxeus, had a lot of potential, but its oh-so-predictable ending and the not-so-subtle message about the environment spoilt it (although most of the critics seemed to disagree with me, so it shows how much I know!). So, with only two more episodes to air this season, there’s a lot …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 6 – “Praxeus”

Well, it seems that series 12 is now on a roll! After last week’s shock revelations and a story that pleased the critics, fans and super-fans alike (all three? truly a rare event in itself!), this episode is going to have to work really hard! SYNOPSIS:What connects a missing astronaut in the Indian Ocean, birds …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 5 – “Fugitive of the Judoon”

We’re exactly halfway through this series, and after last week’s very satisfying episode, I wonder if this week’s will be as good? SYNOPSIS: The Judoon have marched their way into modern Gloucester on the hunt for a fugitive. Who are they pursuing and why is the Doctor involved? Reserve your space behind the settee for …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 4 – “Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror”

After an enjoyable (and thought-provoking) couple of opening episodes to this new series, last week’s was, for me, a real ‘yawn-fest’ 😴. I’m hoping therefore, tonight’s story is going to get Who back on track… 🤔 SYNOPSIS: It’s 1903, and someone (or something) is sabotaging Nikola Tesla’s generator plant at Niagara Falls. And in a …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 3 – “Orphan 55”

First class CGI together with the scariest monsters since the ‘Weeping Angels’, all supported by a plot line that moved at pace! Every actor gave it their all, and the production qualities were akin to a movie. 😊 So, I’m not sure why this episode bored me rigid! I guess it all felt a bit …

Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 2 – “Spyfall (Part 2)”

After last week’s surprisingly good series opener together with its I-didn’t-see-that-coming-twist and subsequent cliffhanger, I was really looking forward to this episode. Pity then, we were away on holiday in Israel! 😮 Still, we’re not going to let a little thing like that get in the way are we? No sireee! Step forward Express VPN …
