Woah. You know what? I'm not even going to bother with an attempt at a real introduction here, because the last five minutes of the episode were pretty heavy and that's what I really want to talk about.
This week's episode saw the return of the Cybermen, who now come with new Cybermites (eww!) and an incessant need to upgrade every two seconds or so -- kind of like really evil Flash Players.
This episode wasn't what I thought it would be; instead, it was a fun, madcap adventure which brought about the return of Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax.
Well Doctor, I can assure you that we're as frustrated as you are with this Clara mystery, and since no one warned us about getting on a spaceship with a madman, we're stuck on this journey with you.
As much as I hate to admit it, the second half of "Doctor Who" Season 7 isn't going as well as I hoped it would, and the latest episode was about to go into the pile of disappointing episodes if it wasn't for a few significant scenes involving Clara.
In this episode we just get to know Clara better: She's definitely headstrong and brave, but also a tad naive, since she needed to actually see dead bodies before she realized how dangerous traveling with the Doctor can be. I'm sure this experience isn't one she's going to shake off quickly.
Even though I really didn't care for the "The Rings of Akhaten" at first, I can appreciate it for the role I think it'll play in explaining Clara.
I'll admit it: I was more excited about the return of "Doctor Who" than about Easter. Some may say this makes me a poor Christian, but in the past few years it has been in this story of a self-proclaimed madman with a box that I have encountered the most meaningful depictions of the divine.
Witnessing the bond form between the Doctor and his new companion is part of the "Doctor Who" experience, and this relationship is definitely going to be one of the most popular ones in the series' history.
Great TV keeps flooding the DVD shelves because great TV is all over the airwaves. Here's a rundown of some recent releases.
Here, before anyone else repeats them to me, I will address the most tiresome comments from those Philistines who don't appreciate Doctor Who for the modern masterpiece that it truly is.
When Christmas comes around, there are a couple of traditions that every family can participate in. Recently, I've found a new holiday tradition: the "Doctor Who" Christmas Special.
In Bad Kids Go to Hell, the new horror comedy in which Ben Browder plays a janitor who tends to the corridors and classrooms of a tony private school, a clutch of the institution's least-favorite students while away their time in detention -- and find themselves being bumped off one-by-one.
I'm worried about the "Star Wars"-ization of "Doctor Who."
We figured we'd open with a doozy. After all, how can one claim to be a Doctor Who fan and simultaneously declare, at best, their ambivalence toward his greatest enemies (arguably)?
It was a well-paced, exciting, scary and funny hour.
