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. This year is no different. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is different this December 25th, but it’s still the tenth in the string of Doctor Who Christmas Specials... 

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

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. In the Forest of the Night is a rather interesting tale that’s spun this week, with a mystery in contemporary London that baffles The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Clara (Jenna Coleman), and... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 8 Review: Mummy on the Orient Express

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 8 Review: Mummy on the Orient Express
Agatha Christie is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who, so an episode called “Mummy of the Orient Express” isn’t an entirely new concept, but one that’s always welcome. Unlike the Agatha Christie-herself involved episode “The Unicorn and the Wasp”, it is mainly the title that’s inspired by the writer, alongside an air of mystery and a few tropes of Christie’s writing shining through. It’s pretty... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 7 Review: Kill The Moon

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 7 Review: Kill The Moon
Doctor Who takes a yet another turn at the terrifying this week with Kill The Moon, the seventh episode in this rather stellar Eighth Season for the most part. As Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor shines, this week’s episode feels a bit more like a Doctor-lite episode, which isn’t a bad thing in the slightest. This is because it means we get more development of Jenna Coleman as companion Clara, who has definitely been in need of more... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 6 Review: The Caretaker

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 6 Review: The Caretaker
Sometimes The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) doesn’t go into the far reaches of space and time, sometimes he stays in the relative present with his companion (Jenna Coleman as Clara) and together they deal with a much more personal threat to his comrades. The Caretaker is one of those episodes. With Clara constantly having to juggle life with the Doctor and her other life working at Coal Hill school and dating fellow teacher Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson),...
