Doctor Who Story 296 – Revolution of the Daleks

God, is my memory so bad that I barely remember “Resolution” which I watched 8 days ago?

That was quite the deep swig of burning hot tea. You can even see the steam rising from the thermos.

Captain Jack is in the opening titles. Good for him.

Doctor Who needs to stop pretending humans are so dumb they never remember Daleks.

Especially someone in government.

Ahh, the Doctor in jail due to the Jadoon.

Poor Ood in jail.

That’s a lot of ticks. The Doctor has been there a while.

I like the look of this TARDIS.

At least someone remembers what a Dalek is.

Where are the rest of the companions? They all know what a Dalek is.

I love that Jack is breaking the Doctor out.

Dont clone Daleks, you dumb bastard.

The Jack and Yas relationship is nice.

Being with the Doctor, you don’t get to choose when it stops.

Poor Jack.

It’s not a beanie, it’s a toque.

I thought Leo was familiar. He was in Misfits and Utopia.

He’s sad about Leo?

This is a bad idea, Doctor.

How is “Maximum extermination” sending out other Daleks to kill mutant Daleks. Wouldn’t maximum extermination be destroying Earth?

Yas, she was in prison… for decades.

Graham and Ryan are adorable. I’m going to miss them.

Always on grass, always on a cliff. Bad place to teach someone to ride a bike.

Doctor Who Story 295 – Ascension of the Cybermen/The Timeless Children

Ascension of the Cybermen

Oh. That was good. The opening credits inside the eye of the decapitated Cyberman.


This might be the most visceral war we’ve ever seen in Doctor Who.

It’s the story of a collaborator. 

This might be the first time the Cybermen seemed capable of harm. 

Graham being proud of saving these humans is great. 

Vent the atmosphere, Yas!

The Master!!!

The Timeless Children

They killed one of the last humans. 

Is that a stargate at the top of the stairs?

Don’t make me cry Graham!!! Yas is awesome and the humans are totally better than the Doctor. 

So many child actors are now canonically the Doctor. 

Ryan is great. 

I think this Cyberman forgot the “benevolent” in the benevolent A.I. dictator. 

Yes! Graham calls the helmet a hat! I like that because I call pot lids hats. 

CyberTimeLords are beautiful. 

The Doctor (and the universe) are in a pickle. 

That’s a lot of eye makeup for a woman in the end times. 

I want to watch Jo Martin’s Doctor. 

I enjoy when TARDISes have working chameleon circuits. 

Doctor Who Story 294 – The Haunting of Villa Diodati

Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, I know who one of those is, and I’ve heard of the other.

I’m 33 minutes into this episode. This is all I’ve written so far.

Doctor Who Story 293 – Can You Hear Me?


Doc’s been getting a bit squirmy, running off to do personal stuff and leaving the companions behind. If they’re your best friends, maybe tell them about yourself. That’s what friends do.

Doctor Who Story 292 – Praxeus

If I continue two a day, I’ll be done my Doctor Who rewatch at the end of the week.

Oh, I remember this episode. It was one of the environmental ones that were hitting the audience over the head with a baguette.

Did she just say a talking cat in Ontario? Is it Moki?

This episode is boring.

Running on sand is the worst. The Doctor should know not to park there.

Doctor Who Story 291 – Fugitive of the Judoon

I don’t love the Judoon, though I do quite their first appearance.

Well, something’s going to go wrong with this couple. And enter the Doctor and friends.

Creepy bartender creeping.

Oh yeah, Captain Jack! I like him thinking that Graham is the Doctor.

Jack being giddy when he finds out the Doctor is a woman is great.

Three of you? I had a dream about this once.

Captain Jack about the the Doctor’s companions

I’m bored by the A story. It’s okay, but all the stories are a bit meh, and one is fun with Captain Jack.

Oh, I forgot that she’s the Doctor.

Ahh, rewriting the entire Doctor Who mythology. But now they can make anyone the Doctor.

Doctor Who Story 290 – Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror

Good moustache, glowing eyes guy.

So many great moustaches.

It’s the guy from Hustle. Whose brother is Gene Hunt.

Is that the spider lady from “Runaway Bride?”

Apparently the spider is Anjli Mohindra who played Rani in Sarah Jane.

Oh, she’s not the same species as the Spiders from Mars.

The baddie is a Pakled.

Rani! Stop being a naughty girl. Sarah Jane would be so pissed.

Doctor Who Story 289 – Orphan 55

I think something’s gonna go wrong.

Ryan’s infection from the Hopper virus was great.

The Doctor needs to stop sexualizing Hyph3n.

The baddie looks terrible.

Also, poor Hyph3n.

Ooo! Mind meld!

I forgot how heavy-handed this episode of Doctor Who is. Here’s a hammer, here’s an explanation of global warming, go to town.

Doctor Who Story 288 – Spyfall

Part One

Be wery wery qwiet, I’m hunting trucks.

Americans are everywhere.

Poor Ryan, I know what it feels like to be unable to play sports.

Doctor Who writers have a weird obsession with GPS.

Oh, it’s Stephen Fry. He’s an asshole.

Why is this CEO an asshole? He insults his mates over the intercom?

Don’t let the Master loose in your TARDIS.

CEO is a bad shot.

I love his house as the TARDIS.

He’s so good as the Master.

Part Two

How’d they get out of the airplane?

The TARDIS being a house just makes sense.

Paris is fun.

Saying a pacifist is a bold stance to take during World War II, sure it’s bold, but it’s also wrong.

Okay Doctor, leaving the Master (a brown man) with the Nazis is just cruel.

So Capaldi just got Gallifrey back, and they decide to destroy it right away.

Doctor Who Story 287 – Resolution

Oh, we get a teaser this time.

Of course the British one fails.

Charlotte Ritchie! So much Taskmaster love! Though like Lee Mack, I knew her before from Fresh Meat.

Poor Charlotte, with a spider on her back.

That’s a Dalek?

Why is the black archive available online?

Eighty-eight miles an hour!!!!!!

The Dalek attacking the cop is fantastic.

I. Will. Fight!

Charlotte Ritchie

The family with no data is amazing.

Aww, dad hugs!
