The Twelfth Doctor: Year One is a pretty spectacular read, especially for all those Capaldi fans. This delightful romp into the Doctor Who universe is definitely aimed at the early days of the beloved Twelve.

The nicest, most polite and charming movie of the year (and maybe ever?) is here! Paddington 2 sees Ben Whishaw return and teach us: so long as we are kind and polite, the world will be right!
Doctor Who: The Doctor Falls Recap
Synopsis of 10×12: In a season finale that brought me to tears, Peter Capaldi gets the perfect send-off for the Twelfth Doctor. Cybermen attack, the Master flirts with Missy, and the cliffhanger will keep you up until Christmas. I think I’ve been clear that I have little faith in Moffat […]
Doctor Who: The World Enough and Time Recap
Synopsis of 10×11: We’re almost to the end, and Moffat is pulling out all the stops. Missy makes a new (old?) friend, Bill gets an upgrade, and some truly Classic villains make an appearance. So. Many. Questions! Ok, this two-parter (possibly 3-parter if you include Christmas) is almost too much […]
Doctor Who: The Eaters of Light Recap
Synopsis of 10×10: The Doctor, Bill, and Nardole take a trip to ancient Scotland. There are Romans, Scots, and monsters. And of course, there are battle eyebrows. First, the episode is bookended with a little girl listening to ghostly music at the edge of a henge. It’s an adorable device […]
Doctor Who: Empress of Mars Recap
Synopsis of 10×9: In a script by Mark Gatiss, the Tardis Three wind up on Mars facing off with Victorian Soldiers and ancient Ice Warriors. I have to be open about something: I don’t love Gatiss Doctor Who scripts. I don’t like ‘Victory of the Daleks,’ ‘Night Terrors,’ ‘Cold War,’ […]
Doctor Who: The Lie Of The Land Recap
Synopsis of 10×8: It’s the end of the epic three-part episode arc. The Doctor takes on fakes news and we see the return of an old friend. It’s been a while since we had an enslaved, dystopian Earth on Doctor Who. This episode harks back to the darkest timeline, aka […]
Doctor Who: Extremis Recap
Synopsis of 10×6: Popes! Zombie Cardinals! Computer Simulations! Different timelines! So much happening! Too much happening? This is your review of ‘Extremis.’ I should have known as soon as I saw “Written by Stephen Moffat” that this was going to be more than one episode. In fact, this will be […]
Doctor Who: Oxygen Recap
Synopsis of 10×5: Looks like someone took a page out of Joss Whedon’s book and decided to fight The Man! Or The Suits, as the Doctor put it. Oxygen takes us back to space, a realm the Doctor has been missing. The episode starts with a bit of Mummy-and-Daddy fighting […]
Doctor Who: The Pilot Recap
Synopsis 10×01: The Doctor is back and hiding out. But after making a new friend, will adventure come calling once again? This is the last season of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor and Steven Moffat as the head writer. So it’s no surprise that Moffat is going to want […]
