I remember watching this in theatres, and being bored with it already. Though Strax is great. Okay, but I really enjoy Peter Capaldi. I hate the new opening. It looks like a cartoon. Why does Clara not understand regeneration? Is Capaldi going to spend most of his first episode in bed? Why do I like aliens not understanding humans so much? There’s not enough Strax in this episode, because everything else is not that interesting. The whole story about Clara not liking regenerated Doctor is bullshit, and horrible. Why would she care when this is after the interaction between Clara and all the other 10 Doctors. I really think Matt… Read More »Doctor Who Story 242 – Deep Breath
Narration! Handles is a bad idea. Having a new character come in just causes too much muddling when it should be about Matt Smith. But the phone call with Clara is fun, but it might have been easier if she was just there with him right from the beginning. I like naked Doctors. How does her very obvious bra work? Their naked butts are touching. The crack being Gallifrey does not make sense with what we saw of it before. God, stop the narration. They expect me to feel sad for Handles’ death. Old man Doctor should be acting more like William Hartnell. So the Doctor can hold back the… Read More »Doctor Who Story 241 – The Time of the Doctor
“The Day of the Doctor” is the 50th anniversary special, but it was preceded and succeeded by many many other pieces that were airing throughout that year. This post will cover them all. I’m going to add to this, that this 50th anniversary was what inspired me to watch every episode of Doctor Who. It took a long time to get this point. Almost 10 years. I’m proud of myself, good job Adam! The Doctors Revisited: The First Doctor “As a kid I found the Doctor terrifying,” said Neil Gaiman. Yeah, he was a complete asshole. Oh nice, they got Ian to be interviewed. The ladies are so overcome by… Read More »Doctor Who Story 240 – The Day of the Doctor
Clarence and the Whipsermen The accent of the chained guy sounds like the stupid accent that Noel Fielding does in the Mighty Boosh. The Name of the Doctor Oh, I forgot that this is how it started… the Doctor stealing the TARDIS! That’s a fun little start. Too bad Clara’s story is really stupid, and she’s in all his life. Oh, here’s Clarence. I do love Strax the more we see him. Why would him having travelled through time make his grave dangerous. So far, this episode is just “we have to go somewhere.” Yet there’s no reason given why they have to go there. It’s just walking around. With… Read More »Doctor Who Story 239 – The Name of the Doctor
She Said, He Said What is the point of this? Clara complaining that the Doctor hasn’t told her who he is, boo hoo. Why is Clara trying not to fall in love with the Doctor. They never showed us this. You can’t just say it, and it’s true, you need to demonstrate that Clara is trying not to fall in love with the Doctor. Also, if you’re going to drop that, you should at least make it as part of the story. Nightmare In Silver Why children? This is very borg. More borg than the Cybermen ever were. If it was all in the Doctor’s head, and they weren’t cutting… Read More »Doctor Who Story 238 – Nightmare in Silver
“Dark and queer business.” Once again Strax is adorable. This must be a Doctor-lite episode. I’m glad they did it in the back half of the season (with Clara and not Amy/Rory). And great, I now see that Noel Clarke is an asshole. DOCTOR! DON’T KISS JENNY! This episode is so boring.
I hope it’s not like the rest of the Clara episodes where it gets somewhat interesting then falls apart at the end, and we have a magic ending that is barely explained. The Doctor is an asshole. She’s in the library. Where’s the pool? “History of the Time War” has there even been any mention of the Time War in the entire time Clara has been in Doctor Who? Matt Smith is so good at seeming old. Why is everything the heart of the TARDIS? The untempered schism. The eye of harmony. The engine. Why will a butt plug reset time? Also is resetting time a good idea story-wise? It’s… Read More »Doctor Who Story 236 – Journey to the Center of the TARDIS
Oh, it’s Prince Phillip. These Soviets are very British. Ice Warriors! This is surprisingly better than I expected. Oh wait! Matt Smith is also Prince Phillip. This is a good less to young children about mutually assured destruction. How does Clara know where they are?
I don’t care enough about Clara to see that much of her childhood or her Doctor-Stalker. Oh god, there’s singing. This has everything I don’t want. Children and singing. Let’s sing and scream at this monster and hey we win! I hate this.
