Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas

Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas
Another Christmas means another British TV tradition: The Doctor Who Christmas Special. Whereas some may watch movies like Elf or Miracle on 34th Street or Die Hard, there’s always something for the Whovians – a very special hour of Doctor Who. Usually written by Steven Moffat.

No Classics? No 50th! – The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot Review
Initially born out of a joke made by fifth Doctor Peter Davison that if he wasn’t asked to be part of the 50th anniversary special he would “jolly well make [his] own”, The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is probably one of the best things to ever happen to Doctor Who. Packed full of quotes, references, in-jokes and music from various eras of the show, and featuring perfectly-timed comic performances from Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester...
