The Parting of the Ways

The Parting of the Ways

What happened last? Oh, right, Daleks… Anyway, in the conclusion to the last episode Bad Wolf, the Doctor says he’ll save Rose and the World. He might try to do that, but I think Captain Jack is more concerned with kissing everyone on the planet… ; ; What happened there? Well, the Doctor and Rose … Continue reading

Bad Wolf

Bad Wolf

We’ve finally made it, guys!  To Bad Wolf, that is.  It’s been a very long, slow lead-up to this (and to be honest, I was glad when it was over), but it’s finally here!  And now the repeating meme is over.  Well, almost… Anyway, our heroes somehow all appear separately on sets of game shows. … Continue reading

Boom Town

Boom Town

Welcome back to Cardiff! Where nothing happens. Except now… You see, Cardiff has a new Mayor, and she’s making lots of changes. For instance, she’s demolishing a castle and building a nuclear power plant! I’m not from England, or Europe, or anywhere else with castles, but that doesn’t seem very nice. Good thing the Doctor’s … Continue reading

The Doctor Dances

The Doctor Dances

And on to the shocking conclusion of the two part story arc with Jack Harkness!  Ok, not so shocking, but I love this occasional companion.  Anyway, when we left our heroes (and Jack), they were all cornered by these human-like gas masked things. Good thing the Doctor is quick on his feet, since he ordered … Continue reading

The Empty Child

The Empty Child

Today is Jack Harkness day! It’s a little unofficial holiday I’ve just made up to celebrate the first appearance of John Barrowman as Jack Harkness.  Because he’s awesome.  And American on the show, although in real life he also has a Scottish accent.  For example…  And the Tenth Doctor is also Scottish, which will blow … Continue reading

Father’s Day

Father’s Day

Rose, Rose, Rose…  Why do you have to go and make time paradoxes? Yeah, in the Doctor’s world, a time paradox is way more than a state of being, it’s a monster.  Because, why not?  In the episode,  we start out with Rose wanting to see her dad before he died, because her mom always … Continue reading

The Long Game

The Long Game

Welcome to the fourth great and bountiful empire of the human race, population 96 billion! We’re around the year 200,000, based on the architecture, and judging from the engines on a spaceship.  There’s also a food court with food carts and people have holes in their foreheads… It’s Satellite Five!  And something’s amiss, but the Doctor … Continue reading

Dalek

Dalek

Exterminate!  Exterminate! In this episode we get to meet the most vicious of the Doctor’s adversaries, at least in the original series: the Dalek.  As a metal machine that looks like an oversized garbage can, it does not appear at first to be very intimidating.  And I must say, not the scariest villain of the … Continue reading

World War Three

World War Three

…and we’re back to the invasion of London by aliens!  When we last left our heroes, the Slitheen were exposing themselves and probably going to kill everyone who knew the secret.  Well, this reveal is short-lived because the aliens decide to kill everyone in the meeting with their nametags (makes you think about whether you should … Continue reading

Aliens of London

I apologize in advance that today’s episode ends on a cliffhanger. I mean, I’ve seen the episodes before, so I know what happens, but any of you who haven’t seen this set of episodes… Well, sucks to be you! Just kidding! Except we end the episode with the Doctor outnumbered and surrounded, the prone minister … Continue reading
