Previously on Doctor Who: The Zygon Invasion + The Zygon Inversion The filler before the series finale, Sleep No More is truly a standalone, whilst Face the Raven connects to the series finale, Heaven Sent/Hell Bent. Since I don’t fancy writing a three-episode review next week, I’m keeping with the two-episode scheme today. AdvertisementsRead More Doctor Who: Sleep No More + Face the Raven
Previously on Doctor Who: The Girl Who Died + The Woman Who Lived This is finally it: the fallout from The Day of the Doctor — and, if the Doctor is to be believed, the 15th version of it: of the Nightmare Scenario.Read More Doctor Who: The Zygon Invasion + Inversion
There’s four new heroes in town. I watched Ghostbusters this past weekend, making it a point to go see it on its opening weekend here in Germany. I’d been looking forward to it pretty much since the first announcements, and definitely since the first casting news. I watched and up-voted the first trailer everywhere I […]Read More Answer the Call: Ghostbusters (2016)

Previously on Doctor Who: Before the Flood. In the first two-parter guest starring Maisie Williams, we’re visiting first the Vikings, and then the (I’m guessing) late 18th century. With war-thirsty aliens projecting a false god Odin into the skies (very Monty Python’s Holy Grail, by the way), the mere fact that we’re visiting the Vikings […]Read More Throwback Thursday — Doctor Who: The Girl Who Died + The Woman Who Lived
Big news have broken in the world of Doctor Who this past week. Let’s summarise:Read More Chris Chibnall is the new Doctor Who showrunner — a retrospective
Previously on Doctor Who: The Witch’s Familiar. In this two-parter opened by Toby Whithouse, we see a bit of a reset — this is, in essence, the first proper adventure after everything that’s happened. After Clara said goodbye for the first time, after Danny’s first death and then his second. Being abducted to Skaro doesn’t really […]Read More Throwback Thursday — Doctor Who: Under the Lake + Before the Flood
Previously on Doctor Who: Last Christmas. Missy’s back, Clara’s a Dalek, and the Doctor’s got a case of mercy. Welcome to Skaro.Read More Throwback Thursday—Doctor Who Series 9: The Magician’s Apprentice + The Witch’s Familiar
Previously on Doctor Who: Death in Heaven. Life — you know, that thing that happens when the Doctor’s not there to fix it. I had my own bit of Life in 2015, and it wasn’t going so well. Hence, I scaled back my usual blogging activity and treaded the Whoniverse more or less incognito. But now, […]Read More Throwback Thursday—Doctor Who: Last Christmas (2014)
Previously on Sherlock: His Last Vow. There are no ghosts in this world. Save for the ones we make for ourselves. This is the story of five minutes in the life of Sherlock Holmes. Five minutes in the real world, but a lifetime in another — in Sherlock’s Mind Palace, to be precise. In the time […]Read More Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.
James Bond is back. Three years after the veritable anniversary smash hit that was Skyfall, director Sam Mendes gives us Spectre. Here’s what I thought of Spectre in a nutshell: It’s a fantastic James Bond movie, it shows the franchise adapting to a modern way of storytelling. It introduces repercussions and consequences into a narrative […]Read More 007: SPECTRE
