Critiquing Capaldi: "Before the Flood"

Question: Is it possible to really like something, and yet still be aware it’s really flawed? Well, yes, of course it is. That’s the difference between subjectivity and objectivity, and what we like to refer to as guilty pleasures. 1,126 more words

Critiquing Capaldi: "Under the Lake"

For me personally, Doctor Who has always been about the adventure. It’s always been my favourite aspect of the show, seeing what chaos our lead characters get into each week. 1,131 more words

Critiquing Capaldi: "The Magician's Apprentice"

The difficult second series. In quite a few ways, a more strenuous task than the first. Don’t get me wrong, first series’ of TV shows aren’t easy to, establishing the codes and tropes which make up your show (or in this case, your era) must be an immensely tiring task, and often require a lot of trial and error (hence why I personally find many first series inconsistent). 1,262 more words

The Majestic Tale of an Idiot with a Blog (or a Series 8 overview and ranking).

The memory cheats.

I’ve never really considered myself as being a massive fan of Series 8. I’ve always liked it to an extent, I don’t dislike any series of the revival, but it was always a series I considered to be a bit weak. 906 more words

Critiquing Capaldi: "Last Christmas"

Christmas. “The most wonderful time of the year” according to the popular song, and I have to agree. For as long as I can remember, I have absolutely adored the occasion, it fills me with energy and warmth inside, and it’s a time I desperately look forward to each year. 1,100 more words

Critiquing Capaldi: "Death in Heaven"

If Doctor Who has only one flaw, then it is inconsistency. While the show’s ability to change genre and focus each week certainly makes the show exciting and unpredictable, it can also be a cost, as there is no guarantee that just because you liked the last episode, you’re going to like the next one. 1,465 more words
