Mindy Newell: Disappointment and Delight

19 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This season of Doctor Who just isn’t working for me.

This is imho, of course, and Ymmv, but after a great opening episode (The Pilot) I’ve been very disappointed. The stories haven’t excited me, and, more important, the relationship between Pearl Mackie’s Bill Potts and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor doesn’t seem to have moved all that much forward; there isn’t any there there, as Trumpists like to say these days. (Of course I had to get a Trump reference in here. You know me.) It started off great, with hints of something even more brewing.

Why does the Doctor take an interest in the non-matriculated kitchen worker who was attending his lectures? Why did he go out of his way to use the Tardis to go back in the past to take pictures of Bill’s dead mom – of whom she had no memory »

‘Doctor Who 10×10: The Eaters of Light’ Review

19 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Knowing what is coming up in Doctor Who may have stolen some of the limelight off The Eaters of Light, but that doesn’t mean that it is a bad episode. If anything, this episode is about teaching The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) that he can’t always be the hero, sometimes he has to take a step back.

When The Doctor, Bill (Pearl Mackie), and Nardole (Matt Lucas) try to solve the mystery of the vanishing of the Roman legion of the Ninth they manage to find the survivors as well as a group of barbarians. Can The Doctor bring the warring factions together, to do battle against the Eaters of Light?

For most of the episode I felt a little disappointed by The Eaters of Light. There was a certain spark that was missing, which I hoped would come back at some point. What this episode was is one »

‘Doctor Who’ Review: Bill’s Lesson in Ancient Roman Sexual Stereotyping Is a Highlight in an Uneven Episode

The Rundown

Doctor Who” gives us whiffs of “Outlander” with this jaunt back to 2nd century Aberdeen, Scotland, adjacent to cairns of standing stones that looks like it could transport a British lady back in time. Instead, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and friends are here instead to figure out what happened to the Spanish Ninth Legion (Legio IX Hispana), which disappeared from records around 43 Ad. Naturally, an alien is to blame, but the Doctor sorts it all out in the end after whipping some whiny Roman soldiers and tribal Picts into shape. Although “The Eaters of the Light” was a wildly uneven episode, strong on messaging but weak on sense, it served to test its characters in revealing ways. Sadly, Auton replicant Rory (Arthur Darvill) did not make a cameo as the Last Centurion, although we suppose at this point he might be busy over at Stonehenge or guarding the Pandorica. »

10.10 The Eaters Of Light

“Everyone knows there are ghosts in the hill”

Thanks to a surprisingly long epilogue at the end of The Eaters Of Light, it feels as though the stage is tantalisingly now set for wherever Steven Moffat’s very last Doctor Who finale two-parter is set to take us. With the story of this particular episode told before 40 minutes had been clocked up, we were left in the Tardis with the Doctor, Missy, Nardole and Bill. One of those people was supposed to be in the vault (a mystery whose pay-off continues to be far less satisfying than the build up), but has been »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 10: The Eaters of the Light…

Directed by: Charles Palmer

Written by: Rona Munro

Doctor – It’s as if his bones have disintegrated.

Nardole – Ew! What could do that?

Doctor – Complete and total absence of any type of sunlight.

Nardole – Death by Scotland.

When Doctor Who was initially conceived, this science fiction series was also intended to walk down the route of an educational series too -an edutainment series as it would be buzzed today – strolling through numerous histories like Egypt or Ancient Greece and getting the Tardis to change with it’s surroundings.  However, budgets being slim it was easier to say the Chameleon Circuit was truly knackered and keep the now iconic Tardis looking like a Police Box.

Even though Doctor Who never fully went down the educational path, it has on numerous occasions dipped its toe into historical events and this »

Rona Munro returns to Doctor Who writing, with The Eaters Of Light. Here's our spoiler-free review...

10.10 The Eaters Of Light

The very welcome return of writer Rona Munro to Doctor Who – it’s being a long time since her inadvertent classic era finale, Survival – has brought with it a quieter episode of the show than I was expecting. It was only as the credits rolled at the end, too, that it really struck me it was probably the last standalone Peter Capaldi adventure we get where he doesn’t regenerate at the end, and it seems fitting therefore that it takes place in Scotland. And includes good quality Scottish gags into the bargain.

Munro sets her story in 2 Ad, with the Doctor, Bill and Nardole on the trail of a missing ninth legion of the Roman army. Bill has read up on why they’ve disappeared, the Doctor has his own theories, »

‘Doctor Who 10×09: Empress of Mars’ Review

12 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Doctor Who has been on quite a roll this season, and there was bound to be an episode that came along that was a bit of a filler. Empress of Mars feels to be that filler episode, and what we are given is a story that is simple, okay.

After seeing an unexpected message on the surface of Mars, The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Bill (Pearl Mackie), and Nordole (Matt Lucas) go to investigate who left it there. Finding Victorian soldiers and an Ice Warrior living under the surface, The Doctor begins to investigate how they arrived there.

In some ways, The Doctor going to Mars and taking on the Ice Warriors feels like an old school Doctor Who episode, and in some ways, that is exactly what we have. It comes as no surprise that this is a Mark Gatiss written episode it just feels like his style.

The Time Lord Meets A Martian Menace In New Doctor Who Clip And Photo Gallery

9 June 2017 5:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week’s episode of Doctor Who takes the titular hero and his friends to that most classic of sci-fi destinations – the planet Mars, where the Time Lord will face his old enemies, the dreaded Ice Warriors. Titled “Empress of Mars,” it’s written by longtime contributor to the show Mark Gatiss and you can now get an extended look at the outing via the clip above or gallery below, both of which showcase the Doctor’s trip into the caves of the red planet, as he comes face to face with the native green meanies.

The episode is set to be an old-fashioned space-venturing romp, as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) discover the impossible: a troop of Victorian-era British soldiers on the surface of Mars. What’s more, their arrival awakens the slumbering natives – those reptilian rogues the Ice Warriors.

Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 9 Review – ‘Empress of Mars’

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 9: Empress of Mars…

Directed by: Wayne Yip

Written by: Mark Gatiss

Captain Catchlove – Don’t belong!? We’re British! Mars is part of the Empire now!

After the past three episodes of Doctor Who which linked across a rather dark three-story arc, this week’s episode from Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, Sleep No More) sees the series return to a more singular format, with just a pinch of a looming doom constantly shadowing the Time Lord.

With a daytrip out to Nasa suddenly being called off due to a bit of space graffiti being found under the ice-caps of Mars, the Doctor and Companions return to the Red Planet in 1881, as the Tardis summarises that this is the probable year when the message was left.  Whilst wandering through the caverns looking for clues, Bill (Pearl Mackie) falls down a shaft and Nardole »

Doctor Who: Empress Of Mars spoiler-free review

Simon Brew Jun 8, 2017

Doctor Who series 10 welcomes back Mark Gatiss, for Empress Of Mars. Here's our spoiler-free review...

10.9 Empress Of Mars

This Doctor Who story, as the title suggests, quickly finds the Doctor, Nardole and Bill landing on Mars, and it’s an odd situation they find themselves in the midst of. On the one hand, there are some Victorian soldiers, on Mars for some reason. And on the other, there’s a classic Who monster, whose identity has long been given away in the promos (but I’ll still err on the side of caution). It sets the scene for an episode of Doctor Who that’s pretty standalone, that moves on from the Monks three parter, and quietens things down a bit.

It’s from the pen of Mark Gatiss, and it’s a more traditional approach he’s taken here than with his last Who adventure, Sleep No More. »

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Doctor Who’s Matt Lucas

7 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Actor Matt Lucas has made quite a name for himself in Hollywood, but he honestly admits that life has not always been as laid back and free-flowing as it is currently. As you can imagine, Matt grew up with ideas and dreams of becoming an actor, but his initial desire was not to be in film, but on stage. In his younger years, Lucas believed that serious actors perform on stage, not behind a camera. Well, it is obvious that he has expanded his horizon and belief system as far as acting goes.

Baby Driver Track List Revealed, Time To Rock Out!

5 June 2017 6:51 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are famous for incorporating classic tracks into the films' scenes and narrative -- nothing beats watching Kurt Russell talk his way through 'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' by Looking Glass. James Gunn is not the only director who very carefully considers every track, writes to the music he has picked, and seamlessly weaves it into his films. Edgar Wright has been obsessed with his musical choices since his TV show Spaced, with the following soundtracks for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World all including some pretty deep cuts that make for fine listening, long after you've seen the film.

Baby Driver is Wright's next film, and the latest trailer not only included 'Tequila' by The Champs, but was also titled "Official TeKillYah Trailer" to put further emphasis on the music. The trailer also sports »

‘Doctor Who 10×08: The Lie of the Land’ Review

5 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

When politics inspires a show like Doctor Who, we tend to see the extremes of what can happen. This week’s episode handles the nature of fascism, and that ever popular topic of fake news. What could go wrong?

With Earth now under the control of The Monks, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) go in search of The Doctor (Peter Capaldi). With him working as the spokesperson of The Monks though, will he go willingly with his companions, or will drastic action need to be taken?

There is a moment in this episode of Doctor Who where something will click in your head, and you’ll get what this is about, and yes the title does give it away. The Doctor gives a brilliant line that is very relevant to society today, and you realise where this is heading. Yep, this is an episode about politics which will »

‘Doctor Who’ Review: Bill and the Doctor Take On Fake News to Prove Resistance Matters

3 June 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Doctor Who” Season 10, Episode 8, “The Lie of the Land,” contains spoilers.]

The Rundown

Doctor Who” wades into political territory this week by painting the ruling Monks as fascist overlords who control the media, establish martial law and punish all opponents. It’s not much of a stretch to take this as commentary about the current state of the Western world on both sides of the Pond.

When the situation seems hopeless, a typically Whovian solution is found in a way that only makes sense on this show, but is consistent with goodness and purity of intent winning. In short, love saves the day… again.

“It’s me! Nardy!”

I’m filing this with ‘episodes I wished I liked more’, I'm afraid. Rounding off what we’re calling – even if nobody else is – the ‘Monk’ trilogy of stories, The Lie Of The Land kicked off promisingly, with flavours of The Last Of The Time Lords and The Stolen Earth. For, just past the half way point of the series, we’ve had the kind of ambitious story that once would have ended a run. I was half expecting a teaser for the Christmas special at the end.

It picks up in the aftermath of last week's installment. We learn then, through the »
