Doctor Who, S8 Ep6 — The Caretaker

Doctor Who, S8 Ep6 — The Caretaker

There comes a time in every Doctor Whocompanion’s journey when real life collides with life with The Doctor. If there is a significant other on the outside of the TARDIS, he (and in New Who, it’s always a he) is inevitably looked down on by The Doctor as not nearly good enough. Poor Rory suffered an unreasonable amount to prove his love for Amy; Mickey was replaced — ultimately replaced by a…

Doctor Who, S8 Ep5 — Time Heist

Doctor Who, S8 Ep5 — Time Heist

There was something familiar about last week’s Doctor Whoepisode, “Listen,” but I didn’t mention it because it wasn’t that much of a big deal. Now, with 8.5, “Time Heist,” I’m getting a similar familiar feeling — and the familiarity goes back to the exact same Series 7 episode, “Hide.” With “Hide,” there was a mysterious character from the distant future who turned out to be the descendant of…

Doctor Who, S8 Ep 1 — Deep Breath

After months of anticipation, a World Tour, and a nearly endless marathon of Doctor Who episodes, Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor debut, “Deep Breath,” has finally been broadcast to fans around the world.

dws8e1dinoIt was a big deal. Unfortunately, big, landmark Doctor Whoepisodes have a tendency to be a bit overwrought, and, as “Deep Breath” began, it looked like this one might take the cake, as the TARDIS…

In the Flesh S2 Ep6

In the Flesh S2 Ep6

If In the Flesh doesn’t get a third series, there’s no justice in television. With the sixth and final episode of series 2, the story isn’t over by a long shot, and it left us hanging as the apparently-dead body of a major character was exhumed, reminding us that, in the In the Flesh universe, we have no idea when physical death begins and ends.

On the upside, at least for the fandom, series two…

In the Flesh S2 Ep5

In the Flesh S2 Ep5

In the Flesh continues to show that it is the best show currently on television, never afraid to make viewers question its characters or allow characters to make difficult decisions.

After a very relationship and romance-focused episode last week, In the Flesh 2.5 grows ever darker (with a small ray of light), as the show eases toward the big finale of the 6 episode season (which, hopefully, will…

In the Flesh S2 Ep4

In the Flesh S2 Ep4

In the Flesh has always been more about interpersonal relationships than zombie uprisings, dystopia, and violence. I confess, coming into Season 2, I was a little worried that the Undead Prophet storyline, and more of a focus on political extremism, both from with the ULA the Victus party, would lessen the impact of the characters and their relationships.

I needn’t have worried. In the Fleshis…
