Doctor Who Story 278 – The Ghost Monument

The opening credits are so much better in this season. Capaldi’s looked like a shitty cartoon from the early aughts. Didn’t Capaldi go blind from being out in the vacuum of space? Apparently the place is called Desolation. Hahahaha, I love that people keep implanting them all. Jodie Whittaker is great as the Doctor. She’s fun. Why is she surprised the TARDIS isn’t there? She knew it was phasing in and out. I like how the entrance of the TARDIS is the depth of the police box. It’s too dark inside the TARDIS.

Doctor Who Story 277 – The Woman Who Fell to Earth

I love that this opens with Ryan’s absolutely for grandmother. Now I don’t know why he’s practising riding his bike on top of a cliff. That seems like a bad idea. Also on grass is a bad idea. Pavement is much smoother. I love Grace and wish she were a regular, but I get that her death is a bonding point between the two men who love her, Graham and Ryan. How did she survive that fall? We’re calling you “Yas” because we’re friends now. The Doctor to Yas. I really dig how Whittaker’s Doctor loves her companions as friends. Whittaker looks so good in Capaldi’s clothes. New sonic screwdriver.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 277 – The Woman Who Fell to Earth

Doctor Who Story 276 – Twice Upon a Time

The 709 episodes ago is great. I love old sexist Doctor. “You may speak with her again,” and I really hope it’s Susan, but it’s Bill. No one needs Bill. She’s okay, but Susan would be better. I really wish it was Susan. The Doctor love Susan. That ship of his is in need of a good deep clean. The Doctor Hartnell with a gay woman companion is wonderful. What you need is a jolly good smacked bottom! The Doctor to Bill (or Susan) Mycroft’s Hitler haircut is terrible. Well, no one should have a Hitler haircut, even if they are 20 years too early for Hitler. What a jackass.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 276 – Twice Upon a Time

Doctor Who Story 275 – World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls

World Enough and Time Oh, we’re already starting with the regeneration? We’re three episodes away. He’s gonna be a woman. I love Missy. Well, I am that mysterious adventurer in all of time and space, known only as Doctor Who. And these are my disposables, Exposition and Comic Relief.  Missy Oh, you’re blue. Nice. I should go back to blue. Nardole I wonder if he’s actually “Doctor Who” and I really hope he is. Aww, Bill has a hole in herself. Cybermen! Old-school Cybermen! Woo! Time dilation! Pain. Pain. Pain. Pain. Razor is great. Is that John Simm playing him? I can’t tell, I’m reluctant to say I have face… Read More »Doctor Who Story 275 – World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls

Doctor Who Story 274 – The Eaters of Light

“I can hear it.” Yeah you can, creepy fuck. I like Nardole’s outfit. Why is it always Latin when people question the TARDIS translation circuit? I enjoyed the queer Romans shaming Bill for only being into women. I miss Rory the centurion. That was a boring episode.

Doctor Who Story 273 – Empress of Mars

That’s not the right NASA font, I don’t think. Oh, British people. The TARDIS stole Nardole. And here I was hoping he would get a full episode. I am enjoying Victorians on Mars. I like that there’s a lady Ice Warrior. HAHAHAHA! It’s Alpha Centauri from “The Curse of Peladon”.

Doctor Who Story 272 – The Lie of the Land

Yeah, I don’t know why this, 270 and 271 are not one story. Oh well, too many blog posts. Monks being there throughout all human history means my culture and no others would have ever developed. I would have been happy with a season of just the Doctor and Nardole. I don’t remember this episode at all. God, I hate the voiceover. Missy is great. Kill Bill! Awww, mommy saves the world. Toppling statues… they should grab Ryerson while they’re at it, and all the statues of Queen Victoria.

Doctor Who Story 271 – The Pyramid at the End of the World

I don’t know why this is considered a separate story from 270. It feels like the same one. But I go by wikipedia. The Doctor being blind is not a good story. It’s very poorly done and I have no investment in it, as I know it won’t last. The Doctor is an asshole to Nardole. I also think they’ve overdone the President of Earth thing. It was fun with a Lethbridge-Stewart, but much less fun with the Secretary-General of the United Nations. I thought the Americans were also there, so they have the Chinese, the Russian and the UN, as if the UN is a surrogate for America? It’s… Read More »Doctor Who Story 271 – The Pyramid at the End of the World

Doctor Who Story 269 – Oxygen

Space, the final frontier. Final because it wants to kill us. The Doctor. What? What are you on? If you’re going to steal from Star Trek, don’t make a shambles of it. It’s the final frontier because it’s the last place to explore. Well, Ivan can’t hear her, so something horrible will happen to her while the camera is on Ivan. Oh, looks like we will see it. At least Nardole is here to travel. Nardole saying “cuddle” as he hugs the Doctor and Bill. I really enjoy that. Also, I want a nice cuddle.
