Comparing the Fifth and Thirteenth Doctors

During the first series of the Thirteenth Doctor a common observation on forums and reviews was of similarities between Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor and Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor. I’m not 100% convinced beyond the obvious crowded TARDIS, but others are, including Emily Asher-Perrin on the TOR.com blog: The Thirteenth Doctor Has a Lot in Common With…

The Kamelion Empire review on CultBox

I have to take my hat off to fellow writer Jonathan Morris for his rather splendid The Kamelion Empire. It’s the concluding part of a Fifth Doctor trilogy with companions Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion (Jon Culshaw). It’s a cleverly constructed (much like Kamelion itself) tightly performed gem. Why?

Black Thursday / Power Game review on CultBox

February 2019 continued the trio of stories with the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Kamelion.

I enjoyed it much more than I expected to; my review is on CultBox: Doctor Who: Devil In The Mist review. ***…

See the details: DOCTOR WHO IS RETURNING TO TWITCH: HERE’S THE FULL JANUARY SCHEDULE. Just in time for my…

Theme for 2019

With Doctor Who very much not on our screens in 2019 (apart from later today!) I’ve decided I will theme the first few (seven) months of the year around the so-called classic Doctors. Each month I will look at some episodes from the relevant Doctor and post reviews and anything else of interest. I’ll weave in some…
