The Doctor is In: The Bike, the Blonde, and the Predator

Retrograde and Anterograde Amnesia, Dyspraxia and Coordination Problems “The Woman Who Fell to Earth”, Chris Chibnall, 2018 My initial reaction to the episode: “What the hell happened to the friggin Tardis?” “Fall off the bike 200 times, get back up.” “Is the screwdriver actually sonic? If it was actually made on Earth, does it count […]

The Doctor Is In: What the Sonic?

Written 7/24/2018 The big nerd fest San Diego Comic Con is officially over, and it is one day before my 30th birthday. But I feel I’m getting impatient to see how the new season of Doctor Who is going to turn out, specifically on what the critics think. I became absolutely thrilled at the sight […]

The Cumberbabe strikes

I’m happy, but not so happy, about what Jimmy Fallon did on the Tonight Show last night. They didn’t get Benedict to speak with a squeaky voice.

Musings on Deep Breath

Continued from The Doctor is In post- There are still some thoughts I had about the “Deep Breath” episode I re-watched recently for my last post. It’s not just about the dinosaur in the Thames. This is the best joke, as pictured here: “Project an image of perfect sleep into the center of my mind… […]

The Doctor is In: Don’t Hold Your Breath, Go to Bed!

Twelfth Doctor, the Insomniac (Part One) in “Deep Breath” (2014, Steven Moffat) Just this once, I’ve got to say this: Poor Clara. She saw the Doctor at his worst when he was on Trenzalore getting older and older while fighting off Cybermen and Daleks on his own. Then when she came back to see him, […]
