When the Going Gets Dark

Correlate a Venn diagram between Doctor Who and ‘Scary Goings On’ and sitting pretty in the middle of the twin circles of terror and television would be Season 6/32, the perfect combination of all the traits of Who tinged with the futile, melancholy sadness of a Burns unit on bonfire night. Darkness and television have…

America: Miracle Date

As you’ve hopefully all seen by now, there’s a lovely new trailer doing the rounds on the old interweb for Torchwood: Miracle Day. If you haven’t seen it yet then stop what you’re doing right now and watch the quite frankly brilliant trailer until you’ve memorised every bit. …Done? Good, because now that your appetite…

Time Lord Spam

If The Doctor’s Wife confirmed anything its that the Time Lords are such a ponderous, pious race that even their transport wants to flee from them. However this didn’t stop the Doctor from throwing himself and the Ponds into mortal danger at the merest hint of their continued existence. It seems loneliness clouds even a…
