My Thoughts on Jodie Whittaker’s First Season as The Doctor

Her first year is over already, except for the season special which will broadcast on New Year’s Day rather than Christmas Day. I’ve never been able to figure out whether the seasonal special is supposed to be a swansong for the last series (especially as the last three regenerations have taken place then) or an … Continue reading My Thoughts on Jodie Whittaker’s First Season as The Doctor

Doctor Who is Flexible but These Characteristics are Non-Negotiable

A warm welcome to Jodie Whittaker to the TARDIS console. Some time in 2018, the show will accept the first woman to play the iconic role. When we push aside the debate about gender – because it has clearly divided everyone – Doctor  Who is about change. For 54 years it has remained true to … Continue reading Doctor Who is Flexible but These Characteristics are Non-Negotiable

“I’m Not Watching Doctor Who Any Longer, It’s All Politically Correct Now!”

Many viewers now lament that Doctor Who has gone down the one route they felt should never have been considered. As discussed in the post on Jodie Whittaker’s casting as Doctor Who, I expressed sympathy with those against the move. I was never enamoured with the idea but now we have a woman in the … Continue reading “I’m Not Watching Doctor Who Any Longer, It’s All Politically Correct Now!”

My Thoughts on Jodie Whittaker as Doctor 13

So Doctor Who went and did it – they did the one thing they knew would divide fans of the show like nothing else. They decided to re-cast the main character as a woman. The reaction from both sides was fairly predictable. On one hand we had the pros who felt it was about time … Continue reading My Thoughts on Jodie Whittaker as Doctor 13

People are Misinterpreting the 12th Doctor Fighting Regeneration

SPOILERS AHEAD! Twelve’s time is over… almost. I felt the two-part finale was strong, powerful and epic. What was essentially an enormous reset button for incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall held two emotional scenes. The first was the departure of Missy who will now no doubt go down as an iconic Master – shot in the … Continue reading People are Misinterpreting the 12th Doctor Fighting Regeneration

Matt Smith’s Finest Doctor Who Episodes

A real mix here representing the best of who I think in future will go down as one of the greatest Doctors ever. In … Continue reading Matt Smith’s Finest Doctor Who Episodes

Matt Smith’s Finest Doctor Who Moments

We are just a couple of short months away from the inaugural episode of Peter Capaldi’s 12th/14th Doctor and all the excitement that comes with regeneration. It has now been six months since Matt Smith gave up the Old Blue Box for good and it is time I talked about what for me are his 5 … Continue reading Matt Smith’s Finest Doctor Who Moments

The Scariest Fiction – Part 1 TV & Film

With Halloween coming up and this being the time of year I tend to start diving into horror (change of seasons, nights drawing in and Christmas is still far enough away that the jollity is yet to rear its head), I thought scares would be a good idea to write about. Plus, Daily Post has this … Continue reading The Scariest Fiction – Part 1 TV & Film

The Enigma That is Clara Oswin Oswald

This is the first of just two articles that I wrote for Doctor Who Land that disappeared a few days ago without any communication from the site admin. The information is still relevant as it was written in light of the information at the end of The Name of the Doctor. Oh and for you … Continue reading The Enigma That is Clara Oswin Oswald

Doctor Who’s Scariest Episodes

What Culture has listed its twelve scariest episodes of Doctor Who. Unsurprisingly, it lists the first appearance of the weeping angels – Blink – as the scariest episode ever in a list that is totally bereft of the classic series. Some of these terrified me as a kid (as with most children) so I’m proposing … Continue reading Doctor Who’s Scariest Episodes
