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

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 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 […]

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!

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 […]

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: 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 […]
