Two Natures, One Heart

‘I don’t think scare crows knock!’ The episodes ‘Human Nature’ and ‘The Family of Blood’ (3:8, 9) are my favourites. David Tennant won the Constellation Award for Best Male Performance in a 2007 Science Fiction Television Episode for the two-part story and I won’t argue with that. Tempting as it is to retell the entire story […]

Something’s inhibiting my enzymes

With the breaking news today that Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who (via a regeneration in the upcoming Christmas episode) comes a shocked response from many Whovians! But really I wonder why. Afterall we are following the story of a time lord who regenerates. That’s the story! Yes, Matt has been a fun doctor […]

The beautiful scars that save

“What’s that?” “What is the light?” “It’s beautiful!” Doctor: “The tracks of my tears . . . Time travel is damage, like a tear in the fabric of reality. That is the scar tissue of my journey through the universe, my path through time and space, from Gallifrey to Trenzalor. . .  My own personal […]

A town called Mercy

“I like to think of Keep out signs as suggestions rather than actual orders – like ‘Dry Clean only.’” So begins the Doctor’s adventure in the Town called Mercy (Series 7/3).  This episode has more ‘Western’ symbols and Biblical references than you could poke a stick at. In this town, the Doctor finds many anachronisms […]

The reluctant saviour

Madame Vastra: The Doctor is not kind. Clara: No? Madame Vastra: No. The Doctor doesn’t help people, not anyone, not ever. He stands above this world and doesn’t interfere in the affairs of its inhabitants. He is not your salvation nor your protector. Do you understand what I am saying to you? Clara: Words. Vastra: […]

The Champion of Christmas

Sycorax Leader: You stand as this world’s champion!? The Doctor: Thank you. I’ve no idea who I am but that you’ve just summed me up. Merriam-Webster dictionary tells me that a “champion” is a warrior or fighter, an advocate or defender, one that does battle for another’s rights or honour OR a winner of first […]

Awaiting the 2012 Christmas Special?

Well it’s only 14 days until Christmas, approximately. This means Whovians everywhere are also anticipating the 2012 DOCTOR WHO Christmas special “The Snowmen” and the (proper) arrival of the new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, or “Clara”. I gather you are such a person, since you are here reading this, so I suppose I should include not […]
