Other views on Praxeus

I seem to be out of kilter again. My thoughts on Praxeus where far more positive than most others. I still feel it has some good points even if not classic. I recognise most of the comments in the Doctor Who Companion piece, but was more charitable towards them. My benchmark is Orphan 55, which…

Doctor Who Series 12 – midway checkpoint

We’ve had five episode of Doctor Who series 12 and I think it’s fair to say they’ve got people talking. The series may be more or less popular or better or worse (whatever those actually mean) but my sense is it’s a step up from series 11 and has some high points. I’m aiming to…

DWC writers consider Spyfall 2

As ever a group of us has pooled views on the latest Doctor Who story. This time Spyfall 2 is scrutinised and I have to say there’s a far broader range of opinions than I had anticipated. We all felt the companions were marginalised, but also had very mixed responses to Gallifrey, Ada and Noor…

Thoughts ahead of Orphan 55

I’m expecting a massive change of pace for the third instalment of series 12, Orphan 55. The title is intriguing and writer Ed Hime wrote one of the more quirky stories of series 11 (It Takes You Away). Will the big arc get a mention? Will the Master appear? I’m thinking no to both. What…

Spyfall Part 1 review

Series 12 of Doctor Who kicked off in some style with Spyfall Part 1. Lots to like and lots to talk about. If this is the standard of the series, we’re in for a treat. Several treats. And a big twist I can’t avoid discussing so SPOILER ALERT! Let’s chat…

The series 12 TARDIS interior

I’m very pleased at the new (or rather improved) TARIDS interior for series 12 for several reasons. If you look at the Radio Times piece (Doctor Who’s TARDIS: an exclusive guide to the new changes) you get a sense of light and better use of space.

New series 12 trailer

It’s November 23 and a new trailer for Doctor Who Series 12 on YouTube. Cybermen (or at least one of), Judoon, Paris / Lenny Henry / Stephen Fry and even something a lot like the Racnoss. I’m tempted to say it looks rather good and not too long now (fingers crossed). Nearly Christmas/ New Year!…

Series 12: some ideas

It may be filming, but Doctor Who series 12 is a long way from being on our screens and we know nothing about what it might bring. This makes it a field day for speculation! Ahead of any leeks or news, I thought I’d put down some markers as to what I’d like in series…
