From Nurse to Centurion to Beyond

When asking: “What does the future hold for Rory Pond?” the person to ask is not Rory himself, but Amy. That’s not disrespectful; there now exists an easy chemistry between the two, a push/pull relationship where there never feels anything sentimental or forced about each of them (sentimentalism is different from romanticism and Moffat certainly…

Is Doctor Who Confidential Worth Saving?

Like 30,000 other like-minded people, I’m in favour of the efforts to save Doctor Who Confidential. It’s a piece of quality programming that is loved by many people and, according to the party line of Twitter campaigner @SaveDWC, “it’s educational, informative entertainment”.

Pond Life

With all the wibbly wobbly elements that Steven Moffat has injected into the last few years of Doctor Who, we’ve had a few mad situations offered up to us.
