Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Before I get to any more lucid thoughts – was it just me or did the two water zombies marching around look a lot like Ray Liotta and Mark Kermode? So the long awaited second Doctor Who special The Waters of Mars was on tonight.   It was good fun.  From the trailer I’d expected a […]

Doctor Who: Journey's End

Saturday, July 5th, 2008

Not a bad episode but not I expect going to go on my all time favourites list. Too many yeah and so what moments towards the end. Still they didn’t push the great big reset everyone on Earth’s memory button this time.

Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

And just in case the banner isn’t big enought – tonights post may include spoilers about Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth if you have yet to see it. On a basic level I enjoyed it. It had good elements: lots of returning characters, a dramatic plot, several dramatic cliffhangers, a couple or three interesting guest […]

The Inevitable Doctor Who Post Late

Monday, June 16th, 2008

I didn’t get round to posting about Saturday’s Doctor Who and with no connection last night I couldn’t do it then either. So here rather late are my brief thoughts on Midnight. Not a bad little story getting Donna out of the way was a good idea. It had an air of the cheap story […]

Doctor Who: Forest of the Dead

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

I’d been struggling for a way to say how glad I was they didn’t fluff part two of the Doctor Who story last night. Then I saw this post simply titled Dr. Who. Sometimes you just don’t need to say any more than that.

Doctor Who: Silence in the Library

Sunday, June 1st, 2008

After a couple of e-mails about some of my recent posts I’m going to flag any posts with potential spoilers in with the graphic above. To clarify what I’m going to treat as a spoiler – basicly I’ll use it whenever I mention anything that might spoil watching something for someone who hasn’t already seen […]

Doctor Who: The Sontaran Stratagem

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

Tonight The Sontaran Stratagem didn’t make UNITs 3 extras in berets and a couple of Land Rovers and so far the Sontaran havn’t been reinvented as the sixth member of the Village People. So the BBC found its cheque book. So all over the UK Doctor Who fans are crossing their fingers that this will […]

Doctor Who: Planet of the Ood and other Time Travelling Adventures

Saturday, April 19th, 2008

Another Saturday night, another episode of Doctor Who using one of the classic Doctor Who styles: Doctor and assistant run around chased by guards while the story unfolds. Fortunately there were none of the shaky sets that used to come with those stories in the old days and even better none of the bad green […]

Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

So a nicely put together time travelling episode that not only managed the emotional plot development and remained reasonably logical throughout. Along with a hint of the shows darker side although given a get out of jail free card to do something nasty because the alternative was worse. The time constraints of the single episode […]

Doctor Who: Partners in Crime

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

Good to see Dr Who back with a story that didn’t completely lose the plot at the end and where the pacing worked right through the story. The CG was pretty good although some of the green screen work could still do with a bit more effort or maybe relying on it a little less […]
