Now that the dust has settled on the excitement of the Day of the Doctor anniversary celebration, it’s time to ponder how this new epic plot twist affects the parable we have noted so far…..if indeed at all. In the anniversary special the three Doctors managed not only to save the humans from shape shifting […]
Though I have no “bluebox parable” to share today I thought I’d stop in to show you an amazing potential opening sequence for the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who. I’m pretty sure it is not a BBC certified production – just something a clever fan has whipped up (or slaved over for hours or […]
‘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 […]
While we are all waiting for that man in the blue box to return for his 50th anniversary, and his impending regeneration, perhaps we can spend some time contemplating an episode where the god-theme is very prominent.

“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 […]
Just sharing a fun pic that captures the timey-wimey nature of Doctor Who (last series).
In the recent episode “Hide” (Series 7/9) the Doctor and Clara investigate a haunted house, joining a psychic and a professor who are seeking the mysterious ghost of the Witch of the Well. Midway through the episode we see Clara most upset as she suddenly realises the darker side of time travel. She sees who […]
