Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count): Episode 8: The Haunting Of Villa Diodati by Maxine Alderton.

As revealed in the end of last week’s episode, the Doctor and friends are going to gatecrash the Byron/Shelley party in June 1816 at Villa Diodati, Lake Geneva where Mary Shelley wrote ‘The Modern Prometheus’. Will it be re-written or will they contribute to the plot? Tales Of The Dead is Lord Byron’s contribution to […]

Everything seems to revolve around Aleppo, Syria, 1380. The year gets mentioned a couple times to remind you where you are. Woman thief, Rakaya (actress Clare-Hope Ashitey) warns of danger from creatures that arrive when they sleep. They didn’t believe her. The TARDIS arrives in Sheffield and the Doctor gives her friends a day off […]

Just a few thoughts about last week’s episode. Showrunner Chris Chibnall says the Martin Doctor is not from another dimension but an actual regeneration of the Doctor. Speculation on the Net thinks she belongs to the previous 13 regenerations as she didn’t recognise the sonic screwdriver. Apart from the 13 regenerations is sacrosanct to Time […]

Doctor Who: Series 12 (or 37 depending on how you count) : Episode 5: Fugitive Of The Judoon by Vinay Patel and Chris Chibnall

Before I start, this episode should be regarded as a part one and everything below is total SPOILER but with none of the answers. I would recommend if you haven’t seen this episode first come back and read later. Me, I’m going to make some sense of it all. There are two mixing plots, a […]

It’s All In The Viewing Figures: a brief article by: GF Willmetts.

It was reported in British newspapers that the ‘Doctor Who’ story from 19 January 2020, ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night Of Terror’, had the lowest recorded viewing figures of 4 million people. This was attributed by the BBC to its subject matter and ‘relevancy’ issues. I’m less sure about that and I don’t think it’s necessarily a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Here’s the first trailer for the next season of Doctor Who (season 12), and it looks like it’s going back to the tried and tested formula of science fiction and classic monsters … well, at least, Cybermen, Judoon and the Racnoss. Who’da thunk it!
