Doctor Who and Mrs…Who?

The upcoming episode of Doctor Who, “The Wedding of River Song,” will be the season finale. The biggest question that people are asking is “Who will she marry?” and “Will it be the Doctor?” Someone on Reddit noticed some similarities between a scene in “The Impossible Astronaut” and a wedding: Invitations were sent out, and [Read More...]

The Oldest Question in the Universe (It Has Indeed Been Hidden in Plain Sight)

I really and truly think I might know what “the oldest question in the universe” mentioned on this season of Doctor Who is. And the answer really has been hidden in plain sight. But before proceeding, presumably I should quote the Doctor and say… The question has been in our view (“hidden in plain sight”) [Read More...]

Closing Time for Doctor Who? Silence Will Fall

Today’s episode of Doctor Who, “Closing Time,” brought together everything that we love about the show: the Doctor swinging back and forth between cocky overconfidence and severe self doubt, robot dogs, Cybermen turning up in unexpectedly ordinary places, mysteries about the Doctor’s past and future, and an abundance of humor as the Doctor says and [Read More...]

The Doctor’s Clothing: Doing Fun Things With Time Travel

Doctor Who has done (and most likely is continuing to do) something that LOST could have done had it had the foresight.

Redemption in Science Fiction: Saving Anakin Skywalker and Melody Pond

I have long been struck by the profundity of Star Wars’ vision of redemption.

Doctor Who: A Good Man Goes To War

I suspect that many fans would say that this episode represents a moment when the series, rather than its main character, rose so high and fell so far.
