Doctor Who Festive Special: ‘Revolution of the Daleks’

7.24pm: Just before the Strictly Come Dancing results show last night the BBC showed the trailer for this year’s Doctor Who festive special. Actually, it caught a few of us out, as the rumour was that it was going to be on after the show, just before the latest episode of His Dark Materials. I …

TV: The Crown (Series 4)

After much hype and anticipation, at just after 10.30am, the mighty Netflix marketing machine swung into action announcing that The Crown (Series 4) was available to binge-watch! 😃 It was a very powerful opening episode, and we narrowly avoided the temptation of binge-watching the whole series based on how good this single episode was!

The penultimate episode for this series – and it’s a two-parter!

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 …
