Doctor Who: The Snowmen

Tonight’s episode of Doctor Who, the long-awaited Christmas special “The Snowmen,” did a wonderful job of preserving the humor, magic, and terror that make Doctor Who more than a science fiction show. SPOILERS AHEAD! The episode begins with a Doctor that is gloomy and withdrawn, having decided to try to avoid becoming attached to anyone [Read More...]

Doctor Who Shoes on my Christmas List

I recently became aware of these great shoes for a Doctor Who fan: They come in men’s sizes and styles too, and so if anyone is looking for a Christmas gift for me, I’ll gladly accept a pair! [Read more...]

Doctor Who: The Angels Take Manhattan

Steven Moffatt promised a moving and fitting farewell to Rory and Amy. I think he pulled it off in the end, although in many ways, the episode faces the problem that “The Caves of Androzani” faces: we knew when watching it that the Doctor would regenerate, and there were so many perilous moments that at [Read More...]

Doctor Who: Inferno

The Doctor Who episode “Inferno” from the Jon Pertwee era is one of the few where the Doctor, rather than going backwards or forwards in time, slips sideways into a parallel universe. The episode thus features the interesting scenario of the Doctor trying to prevent a catastrophe in his own universe, seeing events unfold in [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Seeds of Death

The Doctor Who episode “The Seeds Of Death” witnesses the return of the Ice Warriors and the introduction of what later on would be referred to as a “trans-mat” device, but which here was referred to as a “T-mat” which stood for “Travel-Mat.” I wonder what the Ice Warriors will look like if they ever [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Time Meddler

The Doctor Who episode “The Time Meddler” concluded the second season in the show’s history, and it represented another major first: in it, the Doctor and his companions encountered another time traveler, who it is eventually discovered has a TARDIS of his own and is from the Doctor’s own world. Apart from the Doctor and [Read More...]

That TARDIS Looks Like a Confessional

From The Far Left Side. The official stance of the Catholic church is that evolution occurred, but there are certainly promoters of pseudoscience among Catholics (think Denyse O’Leary). And so this seems like a rather complimentary cartoon about Catholicism, depicting the church going to such great lengths to promote mainstream science and convince skeptics among [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The King’s Demons

The Doctor Who episode “The King’s Demons” is a short (two-part) and fairly entertaining tale about the Doctor and his companions arriving in the time of King John and the Crusade, shortly before the signing of Magna Carta. The Doctor finds the Master there working to change history so as to prevent Magna Carta from [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors

“The Five Doctors” is the famous 20th anniversary special from 1983 – which of course serves to remind us that the 50th anniversary is approaching. Many are wondering what sorts of special(s) might be in the making for that occasion. The episode is famous, and any fan of the show has surely seen it. Rather [Read More...]
