Doctor Who Review: S08E08 — Mummy On The Orient Express

For the last few years Doctor Who has been fixated on high concept episodes. Big, bold ideas of the sort you could imagine people mashing together and throwing out on twitter. There's not a lot of room for subtlety in these ideas though. In fact subtlety is some­thing we aren't seeing very much of in Doctor Who currently. Even the latest title sequence is an exer­cise in hitting the viewers over the head.

Doctor Who Review: S08E07 — Kill The Moon

Well that was certainly a wild ride. The episode opens in very familiar terri­tory for this season but we soon find ourselves surrounded by classic horror tropes (flick­ering lights, flash­lights, noises, spider-like crea­tures).

Doctor Who Cosplay — 10th Doctor and Martha Jones

David Tennant's Tenth Doctor shows Martha Jones his screw­driver in this cosplay and they both find it very inter­esting indeed. What? He does! They do! Silli­ness aside, I like this cosplay it captures the char­ac­ters without being too slavish to every tiny detail. It's been well posed in a way that fits the two char­ac­ters and the photograph … Read More…

Wonderful Doctor Who / Muppets Fan Art Mashup

Eleven regen­er­a­tions of the Doctor all inter­preted as a different Muppet char­acter. And I've got to say that in almost every single case lissyleem has nailed it with a combi­na­tion that seems right for that partic­ular Doctor. The first two are even done in black and white. I'm trying to pick a favorite and it's not easy at all. … Read More…
