Re: CITV documentary

The CITV Old Skool Weekend was a real treat, it was worth it just to see KM back on TV. Definitely one of the most feel-good weekends of Television ever, it brought back so many memories. Before the years up, I'd like to think that CITV could do this one more time. This time with the shows that were...

Series 7 - Part 1

I decided to watch all the episodes first this year before passing judgement. lol So what did you think of the first half of S7?, here's my thoughts; Asylum of the Daleks. It was Jenna Louise Coleman who dominated this episode, she has all the makings of a classic companion and I can't wait to see h...

Night Terrors

This is more like it. After the hit-and-miss "Let's Kill Hitler", "Night Terrors" was much better in comparison. Mark Gatiss is one of my favourite DW writers, who's penned some classic adventures. There's no confusing twists/arc's, just excellent one-off storys reminiscent of Classic-Who. The fact ...

Let's Kill Hitler

It's taken me a week to mull this episode over, I liked it but it had it's problems. There was Action, Comedy, Drama, Hollywood-style CGI, intricate plots, regenerations (plenty of), timey-wimey stuff and Terminator 2 rip offs. In short, there was too much going on and it would have worked better as...

Nicest/Most awful celeb you have met?

I know it's unfair too judge celebs, especially (e.g) when you've met them for less than a minute at a premiere. They could just be having off-days. On the "Digital Spy" Forum, there's a thread just like this and it's a very entertaining read. You'll find the link to it below. http://forums.digitals...

A Good Man Goes to War

Well, Steven Moffatt promised us something epic and he was true to his word. At times it felt like I was watching "Star Wars" rather than DW. It was amazing how such an impressive looking episode was made on a limited budget. I take my hat off to everybody who worked on it. A who's who of character'...

Re: The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People

The two identical Doctor's were handled much better than they were in "Journey's End". The comedy wasn't overdone and it gave Matt Smith a chance to do something different with the part. The best bit about the opening 5 minutes though was hearing Tom Baker again. It may have only been a brief nod, b...

Re: The Rebel Flesh

"WARNING - CONTAINS SPOILER'S" Here's my belated review, my excuse this week is that I'm just lazy and never get round to doing it. :-D I'm admiring Season 6's "no holds barred" attitude, having someone melting in a pool of acid in the opening gambit, is something I didn't expect. I'm also loving th...

Re: The Doctor’s Wife

Well, here's my belated thoughts on it. All I can say is WOW, I think Neil Gaiman did an amazing job. He's a true DW fan and he wrote something that us fans had been craving for years, a TARDIS story. When Moffatt decides to leave (which I hope isn't for a long time yet), I would like Neil to take o...

Re: The Curse Of The Black Spot

"WARNING - CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS" On "Doctor Who : Confidential" it said it was a fun rollicking adventure to make up for last week's dark/scary two parter. TCOTBS was an episode which did exactly what it said on the tin and it's for those reasons that I liked it. An enjoyable and action packed 45 ...

Re: Day Of The Moon

Right, I've finally got round to posting my thoughts on this episode and I agree with Martin's post completely. This was brilliant, definetly the best opening story that NuWho has had so far, it's going to be hard for Moffatt to beat this next year. Back in 2006 / 2008 you never would have believed ...

Re: The Impossible Astronaut

I loved it, Doctor Who is back with a bang and I too am glad that the format has been given a refreshing change. Opening with a two-parter (complete with a cliffhanger finale, for Part 1) is recapturing some of the feel of the Classic era. A typical NuWho opener is usually a rushed and rather silly ...

Knightmare Actor's and Hitchhiker's.

I've recently been researching more into Michael Cule & David Learner's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" appearances. As you know, David and Mike made appearances in the 1981 TV version. But their association with Hitchhiker's didn't start or end with the series. Mike has been associated with Hitc...

And here's Michael Cule in the Max Headroom pilot episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUxsvbbAIo4 Ooooh, nasty! That's not Michael, you'll find him in the Channel 4 movie "Max Headroom : 20 Minutes into the Future" (1985). The above clip is from a "MH : Series" episode called "Blipverts". The a...
