Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat  Director: Rachel Talalay  Original Telecast: November 8, 2014 Network: BBC America Once again I find myself faced with writing a review of DOCTOR WHO and having to drop all kinds of spoilers to do an effective job. I usually shy away from spoilers, but I just have so many questions buzzing around in my head after “Death in Heaven” that I have to bring up things that we game changing, or even just confusing in this season’s finale. Again, let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. Still dead that …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Rachel Talay Original Telecast: November 1, 2014 Network: BBC America Ordinarily with my DOCTOR WHO reviews I try to avoid spoilers, but with everything that happens in “Dark Water” I really feel the need to actively discuss the major plot points that are big game changers for everyone’s favorite Timelord. Let’s just start with Danny Pink (Sam Anderson) is dead. That’s where the episode begins and I know it’s supposed to be a huge emotional moment, but Danny just hasn’t had enough going for him to make me care that he …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Jamie Mathieson Director: Paul Wilmshurst Original Telecast: October 11, 2014 Network: BBC America “Mummy on the Orient Express” is yet again an excellent episode of the 12th Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) new tenure on DOCTOR WHO. Following the events of the meltdown at the end of “Kill the Moon” it appears that the time has come for The Doctor and Clara (Jenna Coleman) to go their separate ways. So one last trip to somewhere nice is in order. That somewhere nice, and oh yes exotic, happens to be the Orient Express. In space. So it’s …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Gareth Roberts & Steven Moffat Director: Paul Murphy  Original Telecast: September 27, 2014 Network: BBC America For having The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) working to capture an alien inside of a school full of children, there is a surprising lack of any kind of casualties on DOCTOR WHO this week.  “The Caretaker” proves that The Doctor can go undercover (sort of) and manage to make it out with all of the kids and teachers intact; unlike last time in Series 2 “School Reunion” where an undisclosed amount of staff and students …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat & Steve Thompson Director: Douglas Mckinnon    Original Telecast: September 20, 2014 Network: BBC America I’ll admit that I was surprised to see the negative press rolling out of the UK about this latest episode of DOCTOR WHO, before it aired over here. “Time Heist” isn’t the strongest episode of this new series, but it was enjoyable and I’m really not sure where all of the anger is coming from. Basically the setup involves The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) trying to break into the most heavily secured bank in the known …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Samuel Anderson Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Douglas Mckinnon   Original Telecast: September 13, 2014 Network: BBC America Steven Moffat is a master of the DOCTOR WHO scare episode. He has a unique ability to create new foes for The Doctor that make your hackles go up, and make you want to hide behind the couch the same way you did when you were a kid watching the classic WHO serial “The Brain of Morbius.” First he gave us the Weeping Angels in “Blink”. Then we had to contend with the Vashta Nerada in “Silence in …Read On »

We’ve had bits and pieces of his personality and his idiosyncratic routines in the past couple of episodes, but this one really feels like we’re getting a solid look at The Doctor as he is now. The basic premise of this episode is …Read On »
