Blink Reviewed

Stranded TARDIS-less in 1969, the Doctor communicates via DVD (and notes under wallpaper) with Sally Sparrow, a twenty-something living in London, 2007. If the concept alone doesn’t get the juices of Doctor Who fans the world over running, this next bit should. The Doctor and Martha – and others – have been thrown out of…

Human Nature Reviewed

Back in the 1990s, I was an avid reader of the Virgin New Adventures range of Doctor Who novels. Yet somehow, Human Nature passed me by. I’m a big fan of Paul Cornell’s earlier No Future – a novel that isn’t as half as popular, so work that one out. So I came to the…

So did Evolution of the Daleks deliver? Kids up and down the country were thrilled (or filled with fear) by the…

The Pulse: The Shakespeare Code

Steve and Gareth are back for more fireside analysis of Series 3, so let’s see what they thought of The Shakespeare Code Gaz – Well it’s “revisionist historical celebrity of the week” time. Shakespeare’s supposedly just been on my box for 45 minutes and I’m not sure if I enjoyed it. I mean, it’s got…
