Peter Capaldi saves Doctor Who, and Christmas

Peter Capaldi saves Doctor Who, and Christmas

Season 8 of Doctor Who has officially ended, we know things now that we did not know before.  We found out what kind of Doctor Peter Capaldi is, and what he is capable of.  We know what is happening to Clara, and we found out who Missy is/was.  I am going to be packing a […]

In The Forest Of The Night The Doctor finds his home

In The Forest Of The Night The Doctor finds his home

In the last episode before the two-part season finale and the confrontation with Missy that the entire season has been building toward, The Doctor lands in a very meaningful way.  I’ll get this right off, because I am not going to write anything about the first part of the two part episode next week, I […]

Flatline was anything but flat

Flatline was anything but flat

Flatline was interesting, one of the marginalized or Doctorless episodes.  Throughout most of the episode, The Doctor is trapped in the TARDIS, leaving Clara to do all the legwork.  The plot imposed enough restrictions on what The Doctor could do that the outcome was genuinely in question at one point.  The story itself is one […]

Mummy on the Orient Express is having such a good time

Mummy on the Orient Express is having such a good time

Mummy on the Orient Express might as well have been written for Tom Baker’s Doctor, and performed by Colin Baker.  It is best modern example, since the last one, of the classic glory days of the series, which have arguably come again.  The argument for the new golden age of Doctor Who is actually quite […]

Kill The Moon has Capaldi showing off his Doctor Who roots

Kill The Moon has Capaldi showing off his Doctor Who roots

Kill The Moon was a perfect mid-season episode.  The tonal shift was palpable, and there were some significant character revelations will resonate through the rest of the season.  There is a lot of good, a lot of cheese, and a lot to discuss.  This episode was surprising, full of easter eggs, and screams for a repeat viewing.  Here […]

Doctor Who: The Caretaker: Yes, Peter Capaldi is getting better.

Doctor Who: The Caretaker: Yes, Peter Capaldi is getting better.

Just in case you didn’t really know, what The Doctor really thinks of humans The Caretaker will show you.  The Time Lord that believes humans are thick enough to fall for his ultimate disguise, a new jacket, and the alias “John Smith” (but you can call him, The Doctor).  Never mind the fact that it […]

Doctor Who: Time Heist is a lighthearted bank robbery adventure

Doctor Who: Time Heist is a lighthearted bank robbery adventure

The Doctor turns bank robber in Time Heist, but as things are when The Doctor is involved, nothing is ever as simple as it seems, so things were in this adventure.  Two new temporary companions proved to be a welcome addition as Clara seems to have been mostly written out of this episode, in spite […]

Listen to The Doctor, What’s Wrong With Being Scared?

Listen to The Doctor, What’s Wrong With Being Scared?

Listen is an episode brilliantly constructed, but only if you do as the title suggests.  Listen very close, there is so much to hear, and just maybe you will discover what is underneath your bed.  Written by Steven Moffat, who tosses words around the page as if they were toy building blocks.  There is so […]

Robot of Sherwood was playful and nostalgic

Robot of Sherwood was playful and nostalgic

Doctor Who: Robot Of Sherwood was a little disappointing because the script appears fantastic, but appeared absentmindedly directed.  This is one episode I had to watch twice to be sure that I was not simply misunderstanding the episode (thanks to a long convention weekend) on my part.  After my second viewing, I feel more confident […]

Doctor Who: Into The Dalek was revealing and fun

Doctor Who: Into The Dalek was revealing and fun

Clara sent The Doctor for coffee, and along the way, he got a bit distracted.  Peter Capaldi continues his journey, or we could say this is where he begins the journey, to discover who he is as The Doctor.  It is still a bit amazing to me that the title character of this show is […]

Peter Capaldi is Brilliant as The Doctor in Doctor Who: Deep Breath

Peter Capaldi is Brilliant as The Doctor in Doctor Who: Deep Breath

Last night was the season 8 premiere of Doctor Who, and the premiere of Peter Capaldi as The Doctor.  What a premiere it was, while I would love to say it was perfect, I cannot.  Don’t let that fool you, I thought Capaldi was magnificent, the tone was appropriately foreboding and unsure, and the Doctor’s […]
