Closing Time

Closing Time

We’re getting down to the end of our reruns – Doctor Who comes back tonight!  So, let’s say hi to Craig Owens for the last time. This was the guy from before who had a two story house that ended up being only one, with an alien upstairs.  The power of his love for his … Continue reading

The God Complex

The God Complex

So, I don’t know how much others liked this episode, and most of it is pretty bizarre and has a lot of feelings about religion in general, but I love how it all takes place in this super retro hotel. And no one questions that, not really. Okay, maybe for a second at the beginning … Continue reading

The Girl Who Waited

The Girl Who Waited

So, I’ve said a lot of times that other episodes are my favorite, and it’s true. A Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas special, hands down. Blink is a phenomenal episode and the one with the scariest villains of all time (they can’t move when you look at them – how you can make a … Continue reading

Night Terrors

And our day of Who begins, not with a bang but with a whimper. Or more accurately, with a whisper.  We meet George, a scared little kid who seems to have “monsters” in his cupboard.  And his cry for help for someone to help with the monsters ends up on the Doctor’s psychic paper, so … Continue reading

Let’s Kill Hitler

Let’s Kill Hitler

After the last episode, the Doctor goes off and leaves the Ponds for a bit, so they get his attention by creating a crop circle. I love that it says “Doctor”… Anyway, Eleven shows up and they catch up a tiny bit before hearing sirens in the background. Turns out Amy and Rory’s childhood friend, … Continue reading

A Good Man Goes to War

Demons run when a good man goes to war… Remember last time how Amy was about to give birth? Unsurprisingly, the Doctor and Rory are using every means possible to find her and rescue her and now this baby too. The Doctor calls in some favors: we meet up with Vastra, a silurian that the … Continue reading

The Almost People

The Almost People

When we last left our heroes, we met a second Doctor! Or rather a Doctor ganger… One of the side effects of getting electrocuted by the solar storm was that his DNA was transferred to the Flesh and now there’s a Doctor ganger, 100% like the real Doctor, except for his shoes. Well, he was … Continue reading

The Rebel Flesh

Program Note:  Since we’re getting down to the wire, and still have a few episodes to go, I’ve decided I’m going to do a Doctor Who marathon of sorts.  This Sunday, March 24th, I’ll be churning out more Doctor Who than normal in an attempt to get ready for the new episode of Season 7, … Continue reading

The Doctor’s Wife

The Doctor’s Wife

This episode title is kind of a misnomer… It’s not actually about the Doctor’s wife. Eventually we’ll meet her, don’t you worry! Okay, so we start off getting a message from a time lord, a box wrapped in psychic paper. The Doctor then follows it to another universe where we meet a bunch of “scavengers” … Continue reading

Curse of the Black Spot

Curse of the Black Spot

Aye maties! Today we’re all pirates! Or at least Amy, Rory, and the Doctor are. They fly the TARDIS into the hold of a pirate ship, a ship that’s been plagued by a siren that makes all the men with even the smallest cut disappear into nothing after they hear her song and touch her. … Continue reading
