Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 7: Kerblam! by Pete McTighe.

Is it me or do other people have no concept of time and space when it comes to contacting let alone delivering to the time-travelling Doctor? Be careful, you might be buying spoilers. The TARDIS gets some shaking up as it receives a delivery from the Kerblam warehouse. It’s a bit late and missed a […]

Doctor Who: The Good Doctor by Juno Dawson (book review).

A singularly appropriate story about mistaken identity heralds the dawn of ‘The Good Doctor’, who now just happens to be a woman. After a great ending where the Doctor and her friends negotiate a tricky ceasefire between the human settlers and the indigenous species of Lobos, they are jubilant. But Ryan has forgotten his phone […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count) : Episode 6: Demons Of The Punjab by Vinay Patel

With the spotlight on Yaz this time, the Doctor takes her and her friends to 1947 India. It does make me wonder when it comes to Graham’s turn that we won’t be going for a bus ride. This is also the first episode without Chris Chibnall in the writers’ credits. From here there be spoilers […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 5: The Tsuranga Conundrum by Chris Chibnall.

I’m beginning to wonder when Chris Chibnall is going to let any of his team of writers do a story solo, let alone a joint credit with half the season gone. Anyway, this time we have another purely Science Fiction tale. Be careful, as there maybe spoilers. Looking through some space junk, the Doctor and […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 4: Arachnids In The UK by Chris Chibnall.

Years ago, it would take forever, temporally speaking, for the Doctor to get his companions back home again. These days, with the Doctor able to control the TARDIS, she can do it in a couple episodes. Back to Yorkshire for Yaz to see her family and see what is going on. The others want to […]

Doctor Who: TARDIS Type 40 Instruction Manual by Richard Atkinson and Mike Tucker, illustrated by Bavin Rymill (book review).

The title ‘Doctor Who: TARDIS Type 40 Instruction Manual’ should give away what this book is about. Written by Richard Atkinson and Mike Tucker, the illustrations by Bavin Rymill cover areas where the photographs don’t cover. There’s also enough measurements for you to build your own control consoles, depending which Doctor’s version you prefer. The […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count) : Episode 3: Rosa by Malorie Blackman & Chris Chibnall.

Not being able to avoid all the advanced promo on the box or newspapers, the third episode ‘Rosa’ has the Doctor and her friends arriving back on Earth, just a little earlier than they should be in 1955 and in the USA rather than the UK. They are also in Montgomery, Alabama in the Deep […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 2: The Ghost Monument by Chris Chibnall.

‘Come to Daddy…I mean, come to Mummy.’   Loved the new opening credits. Shorter but still to the point. You’re going to have to be very careful because there are so many spoilers here, so rather than did dig right into them. I’ll pass some general comments first so you can use them to ponder […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 1: The Woman Who Fell To Earth by Chris Chibnall

A new Doctor. New companions. None of the old enemies. A new writing team. A new day. Why should anyone get the jitters? As usual, I’ve kept away from most of the hype. I prefer to let the stories be the judge than go in with any false assumptions. About the only thing I’ve pondered […]
