Doctor Who: Attack Of The Cybermen by Paula Moore (DVD TV series review).

I often wondered when ‘Doctor Who’ was turned into 2 * 45 minute episodes that producer John Nathan-Turner was trying to stay a step or two ahead of inquisitive fans by doing something unexpected. The biggest step was giving more storytime per episode because there were fewer recaps which confirms my suspicions in the first […]

There are two plot threads to follow in the sixth regeneration of the Doctor (now actor Colin Baker) as he has become rather unstable with panic attacks and nearly strangling Peri Brown (actress Nicola Bryant). He does find a new set of tasteless contrasting coloured clothes along the way. This time, unlike his previous regenerations […]

Doctor Who: Resurrection Of The Daleks by Eric Saward (DVD review).

Let’s cut to the chase, as the title above should remind you what’s in this ‘Doctor Who’ story. The TARDIS encounters some interference in the time corridor and end up travelling parallel to it to 1986 Earth and London’s warehouse district. There, the Doctor (actor Peter Davison), Tegan (actress Janet Fielding) and Turlough (actor Mark […]

Doctor Who: Scratchman by Tom Baker (book review).

Inside the cover of ‘Scratchman’, it adds James Goss as the co-author of this book years in the making. As my additional press release material tells me, the idea was originally a hot project in the years Tom Baker was playing the Doctor and it has finally come to fruition in the year of his […]

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 […]
