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

Day of the Moon

Day of the Moon

We start out this episode a couple of months after the last one, with Amy, Rory, and River running through the US (I’m pretty sure Amy and Rory are still in Utah, though). Anyway, it seems like Canton Everett Delaware III is trying to chase them down and either kill them or capture them. He … Continue reading

The Impossible Astronaut

The Impossible Astronaut

And we’ve made it to Season 6. Only a season and a half left, then new episodes await! This one introduces us to a creepy new villain, the Silence. See, the Silence (which has been referred to a few times with “Silence will fall”) is a race of creatures that kind of look like the … Continue reading

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

This is a pretty epic episode, I have to admit.  According to Moffat (this is his first Christmas Special, by the way, and in my opinion his best so far), he wanted to do an episode that followed Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  And I think this does exactly that in such an epic and … Continue reading

The Big Bang

The Big Bang

We begin at the home of little Amelia, where her aunt has Amelia talking to a psychiatrist. The reason for the intervention: Amelia keeps drawing stars and claiming they exist. Except they don’t, not for a very long time. And it’s from this point that we figure out something is terribly, terribly wrong. I love … Continue reading

The Pandorica Opens

The Pandorica Opens

Ok everyone, like Amy says, this is where things get complicated. Ok, so this picture is from the next episode, the Big Bang (you have to wait a bit for that one!), but it pretty much classifies this entire episode arc. The Doctor and Amy begin by visiting the oldest writing in the world, and … Continue reading

The Lodger

The Lodger

Ok guys, enter another episode like Midnight where pretty much the whole thing involves the Doctor on his own. Well, Amy does pop in every now and again, but it’s pretty much the Doctor and Craig. Yeah, a male companion that isn’t the tagalong of a female one, it’s weird… Anyway, we start off with … Continue reading

Vincent and the Doctor

Vincent and the Doctor

This episode starts out at one of my favorite museums, the Musée D’Orsay in Paris! The Doctor and Amy are taking a look at Van Gogh’s paintings (the Doctor’s probably feeling guilty about the whole Rory thing) when the Doc sees that something’s wrong with his painting The Church at Auvers: there’s a monster in … Continue reading

Cold Blood

Cold Blood

Drum roll please: we’re back on schedule! Yes, that’s right, and only 21 days and 22 episodes away from new episodes on BBC America! And maybe even the BBC itself! Ok, too many exclamation marks, on with the show… We left off on a cliffhanger where everyone except two pissed-off humans and a Rory are … Continue reading

The Hungry Earth

The Hungry Earth

And so starts the weird episodes with the Silurians… One thing you should probably know is that the Silurians are not only an ancient race of lizard-related creatures and aren’t aliens, but they’re also classic Doctor Who “villains.” I put villains in quotes because, well, you can see yourselves whether they’re actually villains… The story … Continue reading
