Doctor Who Story 222 – The God Complex

I don’t think I had seen this episode more than once. It left a bad taste in my mouth originally. I actually like this more than I expected. I don’t love the concept of it, but I really do like the guest cast and how the characters interact. Surprisingly, I even like David Walliams. So this is apparently the end of companions living on the TARDIS with the Doctor for the remainder of Moffat’s time as showrunner. I really don’t know why and I really don’t like this concept of the Doctor popping and in and out of his companions’ lives. The Doctor travels with someone and doesn’t come back.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 222 – The God Complex

Doctor Who Story 221 – The Girl Who Waited

So I apparently have 137 videos left to watch. If I watch one a day, I will finish on September 12, 2021. I wouldn’t mind finishing by June 30th, which means I’d have to watch 2.17 videos a day (some are Confidentials, some was webisodes), I think I can do this. I remember liking this episode. I hope it’s still good. I like that this episode actually shows Amy being smart. I’ve said it before, but it’s a nice change from Tennant’s companions where they never showed us but expected us to believe it. Now that I’m seeing old Amy, I’m remembering that I hated the resolution of killing old… Read More »Doctor Who Story 221 – The Girl Who Waited

Doctor Who Story 220 – Night Terrors

If you’re wondering where Torchwood series 4 is, I’m watching in order by air date, and while most of series 4 has aired, the last few episodes were aired between the start of the back half of this Doctor Who series. I’ll probably be finishing Torchwood right after this episode, so it’s definitely coming next, and also, expect it soon. Oh god, a child calling out to the Doctor. Ugh. This episode is already pissing me off and we’re only 6 minutes in. Yup, still annoyed at the end of the episode.

Doctor Who Story 219 – Let’s Kill Hitler

Prequel So is the Doctor ever going to tell her that she’s going to never be a mom to River? Let’s Kill Hitler It’s so creepy that Mels has idolized the Doctor long before she married him. Their security system is terrible. Oh River. I like the Doctor’s love of young Amelia Pond. Doctor Who monsters need to stop announcing their intention to kill.

Doctor Who Story 218 – A Good Man Goes to War

Prequel They’re imprisoning a child? A Good Man Goes To War Let’s talk about the title of this episode. Do they actually think he’s a good man? He isn’t. They’re trying to make Rory a bad ass, but he ain’t a bad ass. Even as “the last centurion.” I like Alex Kingston. Moffat has this bad habit of half-introducing something and thinking it’s good enough. And he does it so much in this episode. Oh, okay, they acknowledge that he is not a good man. That’s more self-awareness than I expect from Moffat. Get in the fucking TARDIS, Amy and Melody.

Doctor Who Story 217 – The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People

The Rebel Flesh It should be stated that Matt Smith’s era of Doctor Who looks a lot better than David Tennant’s. It’s Chris from Life on Mars… a show he’s in with the Master! That gif is reminding me of when the Doctor had an electric guitar. Not looking forward to that. We need more Dusty Springfield. This is a very cliched Doctor Who story. It feels like it would fit as a boring Jon Pertwee story. He keeps on saying cocarell. This concept has potential, but Star Trek: The Next Generation did that with two Rikers. The Almost People Jesus, Doctor, why are you attacking Amy? Oh my god!… Read More »Doctor Who Story 217 – The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People

Doctor Who Story 216 – The Doctor’s Wife

The guy who plays Uncle is doing the same voice as Robin in Ghosts. I just finished watching all of Ghosts. It’s a great show. Hooray for establishing in canon that Time Lords can regenerate into other genders. I like the TARDIS and calling the Doctor her thief. “You’re a bitey mad lady.” The Doctor does bring home strays. I love the rapport between Matt Smith and Suranne Jones. How come Idris has a real name?

Doctor Who Story 214 – The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

Space That’s really gross that the entire purpose of this skit for a children’s show is to talk about Amy’s genitalia. What is wrong with Moffat? Time Part two is less creepy and gross, but still creepy and gross. Prequel Nixon’s an asshat, but this guy doesn’t sound like Nixon. The Impossible Astronaut Aww, it’s in memory of Elisabeth Sladen. I don’t get why Amy and Rory are suddenly living in England and not traveling with the Doctor. Nice that Arthur Darvill gets into the opening titles. So the Doctor is traveling for 200 years without Amy and Rory, and then he comes back for them? That seems so unlike… Read More »Doctor Who Story 214 – The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

Doctor Who Story 213 – A Christmas Carol

A TARDIS Tea Party Time for another Children in Need special. I don’t expect this to be as good as “Time Crash.” *don’t make snide comments about children, Adam* This is really nice that they did this, but silly that they filmed it. Aww, the kid had a small stumble down the TARDIS stairs and they aired that. Ugh, bad director. A Christmas Carol Back to Christmas episodes having to be about Christmas. I like that Amy and Rory are into role-play. It’s Dumbledore. The Muppets did this so much better. How great would this be if Statler and Waldorf were in this episode. Finally some Amy and Rory content.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 213 – A Christmas Carol
