Doctor Who Story 202 – The End of Time

Dreamland A decent story about Area 51 would be nice, but I don’t think this is it. But it’s nice that David and Georgia got to work together again. I assume they were a couple by this point. The Doctor making Die Hard and Alien references is great. I wouldn’t mind the Doctor having an indigenous companion. Uh oh, the military is controlled by an alien. This animation style makes David Tennant look sickly. There’s too many groups in this story. The US military, the Roswell Greys, the insects, the swarm, the robots. People pick up the TARDIS way too easily. Doctor, don’t set up other people with your wife.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 202 – The End of Time

Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

The Stolen Earth The milkman looks like Spike. Are there still milkmen in Britain? Someone stole Earth. Martha! Wilf is the best companion. Good news, Rose is there to save the day! They all got into the opening credits, that’s nice. Russell Davies loves newscasters. Really? This is what she bothers with? The Earth has been moved and spaceships are en route, and she’s worrying about looters? Jealous Ianto. Martha is on a bluetooth headset with Jack, yet the general she’s conversing with in person hears Jack telling her not to do it. Wilfred with the paintball gun is fun. “Do you have a webcam?” “She wouldn’t let me, says… Read More »Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

Doctor Who Story 177 – Army of Ghosts/Doomsday

Tardisode Torchwood are a bunch of assholes. Army of Ghosts “Planet Earth, this is where I was born, and this is where I die.” No, you’re going to die on a parallel earth. You didn’t die, and you can’t narrate your own death! This whole terrible thread is making me look forward to Billie leaving. I do love Martha. Jackie kissing the Doctor is amazing. Yay! The Torchwood theme song. Freema’s a babe! The Doctor is more Scooby Doo than Ghostbuster. She’s wearing two bluetooth headsets. That just seems silly. Also, remember bluetooth headsets? I think that’s the first “allons y.” I love Jackie as “Rose.” I want real Martha.… Read More »Doctor Who Story 177 – Army of Ghosts/Doomsday

Doctor Who Story 172 – Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel

Tardisode A little bit of back story that will be told in a few seconds in the actual episodes and a few shots of Mickey/Ricky driving a truck. Rise of the Cybermen Wow that is the most moustache twirling villain, ever. Noel Clarke still hasn’t made it into the opening credits. Just a coincidence that they land right beside a billboard of Pete Tyler. Hahaha! The bad guy is terrible. The punk homeless dude looks ridiculous. I like Ricky’s bubie. I think the British President is going to die. Double Ricky! After two of the best Doctor Who episodes, we get this garbage. Confidential Why isn’t this two parter part… Read More »Doctor Who Story 172 – Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel

Doctor Who Story 171 – The Girl in the Fireplace

Tardisode Oh, we see the crew before they all die. That was creepy. Episode This is the first episode where Mickey is officially a companion. I’ve been tagging him in all episodes he appears in as he eventually became a companion. If you look at all the stories, I tag the actors who play the Doctor, Master and the companions (by character name, not actor name). Okay, this is definitely one of my all time top Doctor Who stories. Madame de Pompadour screaming out for the Doctor into the fireplace is such a good teaser and then to jump 3000 years later to a spaceship is great. “They didn’t nip… Read More »Doctor Who Story 171 – The Girl in the Fireplace

Doctor Who Story 170 – School Reunion

Tardisode Oh, it’s about Mickey. I really hoped it would be a precursor with Sarah Jane Smith. Episode Anthony Head! Yes! I love Giles. When you work in a school, do not eat children. It’s a bad idea. You should know better Giles, you usually just arm the children and make them kill vampires. Now you’re a beast and dining on children. I would like to have the Doctor as my teacher. Upset Rose is fantastic. Sarah Jane! Aww, the look on the Doctor’s face is so nice. He shows how the audience should feel to have perhaps the most iconic companion back on the show. It’s glee, and I… Read More »Doctor Who Story 170 – School Reunion

Doctor Who Story 168 – New Earth

Tardisode Really? That’s what they’re calling the mini-episode? Bad name. So this is an ad for a hospital. It adds nothing to the story. I think most will be like that. Episode I haven’t mentioned this before, but I’m so happy they got rid of face during the opening credits. David Tennant seems so happy to be the Doctor. Gross, don’t refer to your adventures as dates. Cassandra is horrible. I’m surprised they brought her back. “The lonely god…” I dislike this description of the Doctor. Also, I think the writers are overestimating Rose’s attractiveness. The Doctor is suspicious. Cassandra switching between the Doctor and Rose is amazing. He can… Read More »Doctor Who Story 168 – New Earth

Doctor Who Story 167 – The Christmas Invasion

The Christmas Invasion Aww, Jackie looks so sad. Okay, speaking of TARDIS sounds being so loud, Mickey can hear it while in a car shop with music blaring. David Tennant is great, and ending the teaser with “Doctor who?” is wonderful! I’m excited for Tennant’s run as the Doctor. “Tina has a lodger, a medical student.” It’s MARTHA!1 Mickey really needs to leave Rose. Why does he care about her. She has no interest in him. Also, Mickey, her bestie is ill, and she’s worried about him. He’s an asshole to assume that she should ignore that. Yay! David Tennent is awake! Only took 11 minutes. Much better than our… Read More »Doctor Who Story 167 – The Christmas Invasion

Doctor Who Story 166 – Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

Bad Wolf We’re only on the first season and we’ve already gone back to the Slitheen, Cardiff, and now Satellite 5. The sound mix is terrible. I can’t hear the dialogue over the music. Big Brother seems terrible. Weakest Link is much better. Captain Jack’s reality show is much better. The boss from Peep Show is in this. Tee hee, it was in his butt. The Human race sitting on their butts not leaving home because it’s not safe sound familiar. The Face of Boe gets a nod again. I feel like it’s been a while in Doctor Who since we’ve seen transmats. EXTERMINATE! Confidential There’s a dude in the… Read More »Doctor Who Story 166 – Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

Doctor Who Story 165 – Boom Town

Episode Who at Doctor Who central, thought the Slitheen were so go they needed a follow up? Why is the farting a thing? The chase scene with the teleport is comic gold. Jack is so excited about everything and it’s really nice. Rose has bad taste in men. Russell T. Davies’ era is so kinky. This is surprisingly a fun episode. Good on Mickey for going out with Tricia. Bad on Rose for saying mean things about her because she’s “a bit thick.” Mickey, you’re right. It’s always going to be the Doctor. There’s no reason to scream at Rose, just realize that it’s over and move on. Rose should… Read More »Doctor Who Story 165 – Boom Town
