Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count) : Episode 4: Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror by Nina Metivier

With a name like ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror’, you know this has to be a historical setting and the feud between Tesla (actor Goran Visnjic) and Thomas Edison (actor Robert Glenister) is rampant. Please, not another alien menace. Science Fiction doesn’t depend on an alien menace, just the presence of time travellers is enough […]

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count): Episode 3: Orphan 55 by Ed Hime

Before we start, an odd thing to consider from last week’s episode. If the Doctor hadn’t survived until the end, then how could she have installed the rescue equipment into falling aeroplane to save her friends? One has to be careful with how you play with time travel paradoxes. Sorry for the slight delay. I […]

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count)  :  Episode 2: Spyfall – Part Two by Chris Chibnall

Be careful, here lies lots of SPOILERS. There is a split as the aeroplane is crashing and the Doctor goes into a mental realm where she meets Aida Lovelace (actress Sylvie Biggs) before both of them arrive in 1894 and a lot of experts from that time period. The Doctor slowly pieces things together and […]

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count): Episode 1: Spyfall – Part One by Chris Chibnall (TV review).

I doubt if anyone in the UK could have avoided seeing the ever-growing promo for the latest season of ‘Doctor Who’ in December. The most significant point being she wasn’t a doctor but ‘THE’ Doctor. Whether that means she has developed a forename will have to be wait to be seen in context over the […]

Daemos Rising by David J. Howe (book review).

In the world of ‘Doctor Who’, the story of ‘The Daemons’ in the 1970s must have ticked every box for anti-filth campaigner Mary Whitehouse on what to not show children. It’s almost on par with ‘The Wicker Man’ and shown on a Saturday tea time. ‘Daemos Rising’ is a sequel to the story which was […]

Doctor Who: The Target Storybook (book review).

Just the thing, another book to remind us we have no ‘Doctor Who’ on our screens. It’s bleak out there and with the new Doctor barely established, it feels like a massive misstep to leave it so long. After all, fans have other options. But, hey, a book that covers all thirteen incarnations plus the […]

Time And The Doctor: an article of temporal delicacy, by GF Willmetts.

There is always something odd about the travels of the Gallifreyan called the Doctor. Although in the early days, the TARDIS travelled apparently randomly in time and space and even appeared in different time periods of the Daleks own history and seemingly annihilating them completely repeatedly amongst other things. We were after all following the […]
