Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 11 Review: Dark Water

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 11 Review: Dark Water
Showrunner Steven Moffat once again takes the writing reins for a two-part Doctor Who finale, and its first part certainly knows how to kick things off. Dark Water is the first in this dual-episode finale for Series 8, and from the first scene it’s already quite the mindbend. Needless to say, this episode is one fraught with spoilers, right from the word go that’s the case. By the first few minutes you’re hooked and confused, which...

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 10 Review: In the Forest of the Night
A great Doctor Who episode can always do with a good mystery, and this week’s is no exception. When you have a seasoned writer like Frank Cottrell Boyce take the reins of writing an episode of Doctor Who, you know you’re in for an interesting tale.

Even from its title alone, it promises genuine excitement, but is this week’s episode actually any good? Well, yes and no. It’s not a total letdown, but the ride is certainly fun. “Time Heist” begins in a similar way to many other recent episodes:... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 4 Review: Listen

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 4 Review: Listen
Steven Moffat returns to sole writing duties this week on Doctor Who with the first real “scary” episode in Peter Capaldi’s run as The Doctor, and it’s pretty much a Steven Moffat episode you’d expect. Listen is an episode that opens with a wonderful shot of The Doctor sitting on top of the TARDIS and stringing a story along with some damn fine construction, but with a few flaws here and there. The Doctor begins the episode...
