Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count) Episode 11: Resolution by Chris Chibnall.

After the announcement that they had run out of ideas for Christmas episodes, ‘Doctor Who’ moves to the New Year. I always felt it far too much of a coincidence when the Doctor continually bumps into something yuletide this time of year. It isn’t like she has other planets in time and space to be […]

Doctor Who series 12 to return 2020 with Jodie Whittaker.

Geoff’s review of the last episode is just in, quickly followed by this news, that Doctor Who series 12 will return in 2020 with Jodie Whittaker. A bit of a long wait. The viewing numbers the BBC also announced from the first eight episodes of series 11 show Doctor Who averaged a 4-screen consolidated audience […]

Has anyone else thought that this season has rushed by? OK, then it’s not just me. The Team TARDIS arrive in the far future, 3407 years after they left the Earth present, although the Doctor doesn’t tell them that. Be careful as there has to be spoilers. They arrive on a disabled starship and the […]

Doctor Who: Molten Heart by Una McCormack (book review).

Another unseen adventure that might form the core of the tales of Team TARDIS, ‘Molten Heart’ is a great story that presents the four travellers as a team who show great maturity as they deal with the very unexpected. From the opening, where we observe the travellers in the TARDIS, to the introduction the beautiful […]

Doctor Who: Combat Magicks by Steve Cole (book review).

  When the TARDIS bumps into an obstruction above the Earth, it makes an unexpected landing in Roman times. In ‘Combat Magicks’, the Doctor still seems to be getting to grips with the controls, which has been a recurring theme of the series. The team have arrived in Gaul and it’s about to witness the […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 9: It Takes You Away by Ed Hime.

Is this really the penultimate episode of the latest season? My, how time flies, even places, because this time they are in current day Norway. Don’t step on the spoilers and watch out for the carnivorous moths. The Team TARDIS investigate what appears to be an apparently deserted house in the middle of a Norwegian […]

Doctor Who: Series 11 (or 36 depending on how you count): Episode 8: The Witchfinders by Joy Wilkinson.

With the latest episode of ‘Doctor Who’, this must be a record in recent series to have 3 stories set on historical Earth and this is the earliest yet with the Team TARDIS appearing in the 17th century. Also back in Lancashire, home territory for all of them except the Doctor, although she can speak […]

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 […]
