My Thoughts on The Day of the Doctor

Ah, Ah, Ah… Spoilers

So we knew going into the episode that John Hurt definitely followed Paul McGann as The Doctor. John Hurt himself made this a public declaration months ago but because it appeared in The Sun nobody really believed him.

The Rings of Akhaten – Episode Review & Analysis

Ah, ah, ah… spoilers

A young, professional looking man in a suit is walking along a queiet street reading his newspaper when a leaf blows down from a tree and promptly hits him in the face. Stunned by the Tysonesque punching power of this leaf, the young man staggers into the road and is almost run over by a brown Austin Allegro (I always know people who drove those cars were inept!) He is promptly saved by a pretty young lady and clearly it is love at first sight. The Doctor is watching them over the top of a Beano comic. The 1970s have arrived! Continue reading
