Doctor Who - ‘The Timeless Children’ review

So, it all comes down to this! Or something. Chibbers has been threatening to turn us around and turn off the gas in the series 12 finale - but does he improbably pull it off?

Well, let’s just say that Chibnall gonna Chibnall, so it all goes pretty much exactly how you might expect. Ryan throws a ball. Yaz identifies as a sociopath. Graham struggles with hats. Jodie realises that she is a very old alien who can regenerate when injured.

Engage!

Doctor Who - ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’ review

Those bloody Cybermen have only gone and bloody ascended again! What a pain. But not just a pain for Mrs. Doctor and her squad, it’s also quite an inconvenience for the human race, who have been all but wiped out.

Will Graham snd Yaz’s romance blossom? Will the Doctor apologise for destroying humanity? Will the luck of the Irish endure? Most importantly, when all’s said and done, will we still care?

Doctor Who - ‘The Haunting of Villa Diodatti’ review

Ghosts! An army of them? No, just the one - FOR NOW. Old Cheeky Chibnall does us a right old deception as he tells us a spooktacular tale that ends of having more in common with old Frankenstein than we ever would have thought possible. Join Mrs. Doctor, the Fam and a bunch of famous writers who you may or may not recognise for a tale that chills the very soul.

Doctor Who - ‘Can You Hear Me?’ review

A tall bald gentleman creeps into your room in the middle of the night. He smiles at you, then pops his fingers inside you. This is the stuff that dreams are made of!

Have you ever felt alone? Isolated? Set adrift in a harsh uncaring world, feeling like you couldn’t trust anyone or anything? Well, if so - your instincts were correct! Keep these feelings to yourself, bury them deep down and distract yourself with another entirely unrelated episode of TV’s Doctor Who!

The Doctor Who rewatch podcast- 'Praxeus' review

The plastics!

They’ve got it in for us - and I don’t mean the collection of attractive actresses in the 2004 teen comedy ‘The Meanie Girls’! No, sadly it’s our rampant unceasing rape of the planet that’s coming back to haunt us once again, which is starting to prove to be a bit of a ballache.



Fortunately, The Fam are here to help us out, and using a mixture of dissection, recklessness and talking cats, Our Jodie is soon in a position to deliver another to-camera monologue, should she want to. But does she?

Doctor Who- ‘Fugitive of the Judoon’ review

Well, that was…different. That was not Vintage Chernobyly. That was more Cheeky Chibbers. Take a pinch of RTD, throw in a serving of Moffat, a few Doctors, an intergalactic sex machine and a judoon platoon arriving not a moment too soon - and baby, you’ve got yourself a stew goin’

Doctor Who - ‘Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror’ review

Terror!

It’s a curious thing. Makes one man weep, makes another man poop himself. But what does it do in the case of Nikola Tesla’s case? Does it make him rise to greater things? To search for the hero inside himself? Resolve to poison his long-term rival and lover Thomas Edison?

There’s only one way to find out - use some of that classic electricity, wi-fi and other sc-fi gubbins to listen to this review!

Doctor Who - ‘Orphan 55’ review

Holidays!

We all enjoy them, and no-one enjoys them more than the characters of Doctor Who, because they usually involve a load of people dying and, if they’re lucky, probably a conspiracy or two. This particular holiday features all of the above - alongside a selfish octogenarian, a young lady with serious abandonment issues and a surprise guest appearance by musical wunderkind Billie Eilish.

Let’s ‘ave it!

The Doctor Who rewatch podcast- 'Spyfall' part 2 commentary

Gallifrey rises! And falls. And Rises! And…falls?

Ah, that Gallifrey, so frequently rising and falling, much like our degree of investment in the Chris Chernobly era of Doctor Who. But it’s not just rising and falling going on in this episode, oh no, it’s *all* cracking off. *All* the events! There’s a Leonard Henry doing this. Suspiciously familiar lights doing that. Graham riverdancing lasers toward’s his dead wife’s grandson.

All the things.



The Boardgame!

The Doctor Who rewatch podcast- 'Spyfall' part 1 commentary

They’re back! The loose group of cut-outs that we reluctantly refer to as a ‘fam’ have returned to our television sets ready to answer to question of whether Chris Chernobyly’s year off has resulted in learning the lessons from Our Jodie’s first series.

On that front, only time will tell, but in the meantime, we say hiya to an old friend...
