Doctor Who Series 10 Review: World Enough And Time

Friendship drives the Doctor into the rashest decision of his life. Trapped on a giant spaceship, caught in the event horizon of a black hole, he witnesses the death of someone he is pledged to protect. Is there any way he can redeem his mistake? Are events already out of control? For once, time is the Time Lord’s enemy…

When the Cybermen returned to Doctor Who in 2006 Russell T. Davies neatly sidestepped their rather convoluted history by creating a new race of the silver warriors on a parallel Earth, affectionately known as Pete’s World. It was a bold but necessary move short of a complete reboot. The Cybermen had [...]

Review: The Unofficial Doctor Who Songbook

Changing the lyrics of a song has been an effective hook for some of the most memorable adverts over the years: ‘What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a hexbug?’ It’s also been a superb form of parody with the likes of Weird Al re-immortalising old and new hits, turning “Happy” to “Tacky” and “Beat It” to “Eat it”. But for the most part it’s all just a bit of harmless fun, channelling the inner poet inside us all.

Doctor Who Series 10, Episode 10: The Eaters Of Light Review

A long time ago, the ninth legion of the Roman army vanished into the mists of Scotland. Bill has a theory about what happened, and the Doctor has a time machine. But when they arrive in ancient Aberdeenshire, what they find is a far greater threat than any army. In a cairn, on a hillside, is a doorway leading to the end of the world…

The Eaters of Light is a deceptively simple tale, but thanks to a hefty dollop of poetic imagination it’s one which like all the best Doctor Who episodes works on multiple levels. On the surface this is another series 10 throwback to the original 1963-89 run. The plot is structured [...]

Series 10, Episode 9 Empress of Mars Review

The Doctor, Bill and Nardole arrive on Mars, and find themselves in an impossible conflict between Ice Warriors… and Victorian soldiers. As the Martian hive awakens around them, the Doctor faces a unique dilemma – this time the humans, not the Ice Warriors are the invaders. When Earth is invading Mars, whose side is he on?

Considering that it’s so rare to find Jon Pertwee anywhere near the top of a favourite Doctor’s poll, the sheer number of references to the Third Doctor’s run since the show returned in 2005 is truly remarkable. In fact, if we were to carry out some kind of [...]
