Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E07 — The Bells of Saint John

 When reviewing The Bells of Saint John for the first time my take­away was that this was a solid but unex­cep­tional episode that used a lot of familiar elements. After a re-watch I think that’s still broadly true. It’s certainly not the strongest episode of the season and the Spoon­heads with their revolving head gimmick are clearly very similar to … Continue reading Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E07 — The Bells of Saint John

Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E06 — The Snowmen

Season 7’s Christmas special was the offi­cial intro­duc­tion of the new companion Clara as played by Jenna Coleman. Of course she had appeared previ­ously in the show but this is where her story really begins. And her inter­ac­tion here with Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor, just like the previous verbal spar­ring in Asylum of the Daleks is … Continue reading Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E06 — The Snowmen

Doctor Who Re-Review: The Power Of Three

When I posted my orig­inal review of The Power Of Three I called it “almost a great Doctor Who story.” Has my opinion changed with a fresh watch? It certainly starts strong with a very distinc­tive hook. The myste­rious cubes raise lots of ques­tions and there’s no imme­diate answers. And then we get some solid char­acter building scenes between Amy … Continue reading Doctor Who Re-Review: The Power Of Three

Doctor Who Re-Review: Season 7 Episode 1 — Asylum of The Daleks

When Season 7 of Doctor Who aired, I posted (gener­ally short) reviews of the episodes which made up my initial impres­sions. Now that the season is avail­able in its entirety on Hulu+ I thought it might be inter­esting to do a re-watch and see how my opin­ions have changed or not. I’m also inter­ested to see how well the … Continue reading Doctor Who Re-Review: Season 7 Episode 1 — Asylum of The Daleks

Doctor Who Cosplay : Silurian Warrior

The Silurians first appeared in Doctor Who back in 1972 in a face off with the Third Doctor. They came back a couple of times in Classic Who before their appear­ance against the 11th Doctor, for which they got a pretty major redesign. And it’s that redesign that this cosplay is based on. It’s a pretty impres­sive recre­ation too. the … Continue reading Doctor Who Cosplay : Silurian Warrior

Doctor Who Review — The Day of the Doctor

Writing an anniver­sary special is some­thing of a poison chalice at the best of times. Writing a 50th Anniver­sary special for a show that has to appeal to all ages in prime time and has a rabid fan base who have memo­rised every detail of the shows incon­sis­tent conti­nuity and will pick it to death is and all of … Continue reading Doctor Who Review — The Day of the Doctor

Mary Poppins Meets Doctor  Who

A clever play off the recent Doctor Who Christmas Special The Snowmen in which Clara was intro­duced as a nanny. What if a different nanny were to show up? Great bit of artwork by khal­lion who also has a great series of Disney Princesses meeting the TARDIS as well. http://​khal​lion​.deviantart​.com/​a​r​t​/​N​a​n​n​y​-​W​h​o​-​3​8​7​1​2​7​095 Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of eoghann​.com.

TV Review: Doctor Who S07E13 — The Name Of The Doctor

So the episode that has been hype for months. Could it possibly live to that? Could it even live up to its name? Yes. I think it could and did. It’s not perfect, but I came away over­whelm­ingly satis­fied on multiple levels. And that’s all I ever ask from a TV show. In a sense the ques­tion in the title was answered, if … Continue reading TV Review: Doctor Who S07E13 — The Name Of The Doctor

Doctor Who Cosplay — TARDIS Cosplay

So TARDIS dresses are all over the place lately. It’s almost boring. How about the TARDIS Console then? How about if it actu­ally lights up? https://​www​.face​book​.com/​p​h​o​t​o​.​p​h​p​?​f​b​i​d​=​5​8​3​3​2​4​9​3​8​3​6​7​0​8​0​&​a​m​p​;​s​e​t​=​a​.​1​1​1​2​9​5​0​3​5​5​7​0​0​7​5​.​8​9​3​0​.​1​1​0​2​9​8​9​3​5​6​6​9​6​8​5​&​a​m​p​;​t​y​p​e​=​1​&​a​m​p​;​t​h​e​a​ter Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of eoghann​.com.

TV Review: Doctor Who S07E12 — Nightmare In Silver

So here’s an episode that had built up expec­ta­tions to an almost impos­sible level. It was Neil Gaiman’s second Doctor Who episode with the first (The Doctor’s Wife) being consid­ered one of the best the show has produced since it was revived. And if that wasn’t enough pres­sure the stated goal of this episode was to … Continue reading TV Review: Doctor Who S07E12 — Night­mare In Silver

TV Review: Doctor Who S07E10 — Journey To The Center Of The TARDIS

Fans have been wanting to see some­thing beyond the console room ever since Doctor Who came back on air. And this was the episode that promised to do exactly that. The tricky bit though is providing an actual good story to go along with all that fan service. Did Journey To The Center Of The … Continue reading TV Review: Doctor Who S07E10 — Journey To The Center Of The TARDIS

TV Review: Doctor Who S07E04 — The Power of Three

This was almost a great Doctor Who story. Almost. We get some great char­acter moments between Amy and the Doctor, Amy and Rory and the Doctor and Rory’s father. All no doubt in prepa­ra­tion for the Pond’s inevitable depar­ture. The cubes them­selves and the nature of the inva­sion is unique and refresh­ingly imag­i­na­tive. A call back … Continue reading TV Review: Doctor Who S07E04 — The Power of Three
