  • In Defence of Steven Moffat's Writing

    Tue 31 Dec 2013  ·  12:46AM

    A facebook friend shared this article with the caption “Well this is awesome”, and because I’ve seen the argument more than once now, it angered me more than it should’ve done. What follows the link, is the response I sent in reply to my friend. The Captain Kirk Problem; How Doctor Who Betrayed Matt Smith I agree with so very little o...

  • Matt Smith's Final Series (That Should've Been)

    Sun 29 Dec 2013  ·  11:55PM

    Ok, this will be a short one. Also, a very nerdy one. Really nerdy. So nerdy that I'm not even going to publicly share it, so if you've found it, you've done so on your own; well done you!

  • Why I’m Still Waiting For The Doctor’s Daughter

    Sun 16 Jun 2013  ·  10:40PM

    Spoiler Warning – though the episode aired in 2008, so you’ve really got no excuse. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again; “The Doctor’s Daughter” really is my favourite episode of Doctor Who. And yet the thing is, to some extent, this surprises even me. There are plenty of other episodes I like with better villains, better plots, bett...
