Don’t spend too long thinking about the title, its significance is likely not that great and besides you’ll need to concentrate to catch everything that’s going on in this episode. Despite being the return of two-parters (something I am terribly happy about) there is no noticeable slowing of Doctor Who’s break-neck pace here. If anything Moffat goes … Continue reading Doctor Who Review: S09E01 — The Magician’s Apprentice
The second outing for perennial Doctor Who villains the Cybermen and Patrick Troughton’s first meeting with them is a less than thrilling affair. Even allowing for the much slower pace of a all the 60s Doctor Who there’s still something particularly stagey about this adventure. Moonbase uses the base-in-peril format that was the template for this period … Continue reading Doctor Who Review: The Moonbase
As I mentioned in my review of Dark Water, Steven Moffat doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to concluding two parters. Indeed if there’s one criticism you can always levy at him it’s that he tries to cram too many ideas into his stories. I loved Dark Water which kept the action going from … Continue reading Doctor Who Review: S08E12 — Death In Heaven
Doctor Who spans a lot of years (with gaps) which means it’s ideal for this type of thing where you type in your date of birth and it finds the episode that aired closest to your birthday. This serves no purpose what so ever except to amuse. In my case, unfortunately, it was The Time Monster Part … Continue reading What’s Your Doctor Who Birthday Episode?
This Doctor Who themed Silicon Ice Tray and Chocolate mold lets you create your own army of Daleks or populate your table with a thousand (if you’re very, very, very, very, very patient) TARDISes. Plus if you use it as an ice mold the TARDIS has a realistic dematerialzation effect! Okay, I may have made that bit up … Continue reading Doctor Who Silicone Ice/Chocolate Mold Gives You Your Own Dalek Army To Eat!
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
I’m a sucker for things like glow in the dark artwork. What can I say… I was a comics fan during the 90s! So naturally I love this poster by Matt Ferguson which is officially titled Mad Wan With A Box By day you get this stark two color image of the iconic TARDIS which is unmistakeable to any fan. But then by … Continue reading Doctor Who Fan Art — Awesome Glow In The Dark TARDIS Art

Not a lot else to say here. The headline tells you most of what you want to know. Admittedly this must be a very large dinosaur in order to be able to eat the TARDIS, but let’s not quibble. Great bit of artwork by DrSpazmo. If you like it enough you can get a print or t-shirt of it. Source: DesignedByHumans Eoghann … Continue reading The T-Rex Has The Phonebox… and it’s eating it.
There’s been a fair amount of excitement recently over hints that LEGO may be able to pursue a license for Doctor Who sets. Which is kind of cool, although I rather like the existing non-LEGO brand sets personally. There’s even a CUUSOO project that just hit the review target. I’ll be honest though… I wasn’t actually that impressed by it. This … Continue reading LEGO Doctor Who — TARDIS Bookends
The Visitation is still in Peter Davison’s first season as the Fifth Doctor, but by this point the new status quo is firmly established. This is a point in Doctor Who history when not only was I a regular watcher, but at around 10 years old, I actually still retain some memories of that original viewing. I actually haven’t … Continue reading Doctor Who Reviews: The Visitation

Doctor Who Cosplay — The TARDIS Sometimes cosplay is remarkably detailed and accurate. Sometimes it’s just very inventive. Sometimes they’re are remarkably detailed and inventive. Like this TARDIS costume which contains really all the core design elements (note the lantern which is similar to the light on top of the TARDIS).

What Is Blue, Made of Cardboard And Costs Over $200? A life size TARDIS replica! I hope it’s made of really sturdy cardboard, because that is a lot of money to pay for something you can’t put out in the rain without it collapsing. Admittedly it looks quite cool, but still… http://www.urban-collector.com/doctor-who-3d-tardis-life-size-standup-mar142100.html Eoghann Irving Overly opinionated owner and author … Continue reading What Is Blue, Made of Cardboard And Costs Over $200?
