This week saw the world as we know it under a threat of a mechanical alien robot with machine guns for arms.

It started off very promising, with the Doctor finally meeting Danny and them actually conversing.

Clara was, as you’d expect, in between the two trying to reason with both men getting them to accept each other. Continue reading

So this week saw the Doctor and Clara battling robots in episode 3 of Doctor Who, series 8.

It started off with Clara choosing where she wanted to go, something previous companions have had the chance to do. Her choice was to meet Robin Hood.

Anyway, this week saw the return of almost everyone’s favourite villains…. the Daleks! Continue reading

So after a very loooong time, we finally get Doctor Who back on our screens. Not the same Doctor, but the same show.

As soon as the show started I was very cynical about the whole dinosaur thing. Personally I feel that Victorian-time London with a dinosaur is a cliché that DW needs to avoid in the future, leave it for the potential spin-off show that may or may not be.

Peter Capaldi for the most part was most probably ordered (by script) to act all crazy, what with him being in a post-regeneration state. I for one, disliked the first half an hour plus of this. It just felt a tad forced to me.
