I’m going to try something different. I’m going to write this post as I watch the episode. Granted it’s 3:14am EST, but it just became available in my Amazon Video queue (we’re working on cutting cable). I may leave it as this. I may post a more coherent blog post later. I don’t know. Anyway,… Read More Doctor Who, “The Pyramid at the End of the World”
There were two storylines in last week’s episode of Doctor Who: the present and the past. Both had their intriguing points and their faults. Spoilers after the hopefully non-spoilery photo below.
This is an interesting look at how companions, all female so far, are written in Doctor Who. As the author of the post notes at the end, this is not perfect. But it is a start and an interesting insight into the writing of the series. In April 2014, I completed a study, with several other… Read More Companions in “New” Who
If you haven’t seen “The Husbands of River Song”, don’t keep going. Go. Find it. Watch it. It is so much fun and a wonderful episode.
I don’t understand? Are you kidding? Me? Of course I understand. I mean, do you call this a war, this funny little thing? This is not a war. I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know.

I’ve talked about everything else in The Day of the Doctor, let’s talk about the Doctor and his multiple regenerations. The first time he meets another regeneration is when Eleven jumps into the time fissure and runs into Ten. That scene was brilliant! Sizing each other up was hilarious. Seeing how skinny Ten was from… Read More The Day of the Doctor: Part 2
After the events of The Night of the Doctor, I was eagerly awaiting The Day of the Doctor. I watched it four times that night: the first time it was shown, the second time with the added commentary from Tennant and Smith, the DVR-ed first time, the DVR-ed second time. I kept noticing things each… Read More The Day of the Doctor
I realized that I had jumped the gun a bit by planning to talk about season 8. I hadn’t talked about the amazing things that came out of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. This is an amazing mini-episode that the BBC posted to YouTube as a prequel to the big show. It takes place… Read More The Night of the Doctor
I’ve been busy with a lot of things lately. But there will be a few posts soon. The recent season of Doctor Who is done and there are a lot of mixed feelings overall. But there is one thing I am sure of: I love the Twelfth Doctor! “These are attack eyebrows! You can take… Read More Sorry for the gap
The mysterious Professor River song first appears in the Series Four episode Silence in the Library. I liked her right off the bat. Her attitude, her confidence, I loved it. Then the hook was pulled out: she already knows the Doctor, but he doesn’t know her. The first time I saw this, it simply drew… Read More River Song
