Doctor Who Recaps/Reviews Feed

We were just roaming around on the Internet, looking for any sign of a new story about the upcoming season of Doctor Who. Unfortunately, all's quiet at the moment, apart from a couple of early publicity shots. Our travels eventually lead us to an article about Lewis Capaldi, the 22 year-old Scottish singer-songwriter, who is some relation to the 12th Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi. (It sounds like they're third cousins twice removed, or something like that.) A few more clicks later, and we landed on this video for Lewis Capaldi's song, "Someone You Loved," which features his famous relative. Capaldi... Read more →


David Tennant marked the completion of his first podcast season with one final release. David Tennant Does a Podcast With...Everyone is a 40-minute collection of previously unheard outtakes from his conversations with different guests this year. That list includes Olivia Colman, Michael Sheen, James Corden, Catherine Tate, Jon Hamm, Gordon Brown, Samantha Bee, and Whoopi Goldberg. It's a quick bit of fun, as well as a sort of a "greatest hits" type episode which makes for a good series introduction for any Tennant fans who haven't heard the show before now. We admit that the former Doctor Who and Broadchurch... Read more →


Doctor Who fans still have a long wait ahead of them before Season 12 arrives next year. If only we had a TARDIS to help us speed things up. However, Titan Comics has a way to help you pass the time with the release of the new graphic novel: Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor Volume 1. (Release date: May 7, 2019) Comic book writer Jody Houser and artist Rachael Stott join forces in this collection to show the 13th Doctor in peak optimistic form as she tackles new challenges with her friends Ryan, Yaz, and Graham. The story seems to... Read more →


We don't know a lot about comic conventions around here. We went to a handful of Doctor Who conventions in the early 1980's, but that's it. There have been a few Doctor Who stars who have appeared at shows in the region in recent years, but either we couldn't get it together to buy tickets in time, or they weren't people we needed to meet. However, that all changes this year. Come August, we're going to meet the 12th Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi! Peter Capaldi will be attending the 2019 Fan Expo Boston, and we've already got our tickets! In... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I'm sure we'll extend BDH's birthday celebration for a few more days. He had a good day yesterday, and he wanted me to tell you how nice it was to hear from so many friends. That's really his most favorite part of his birthday, so thank you to everyone who made him smile even more than usual. Of course, we need to take a look at the headlines before we get back to the party. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee (which... Read more →


Our unabashed fondness for David Tennant for is well-documented in this space. We loved in him Doctor Who of course, as well as Broadchurch, and many other performances. He's brilliant in every role, but there's also a sense of humor and warmth about the man which has long led us to believe we would be best friends if we ever met. (Don't bother trying to convince us otherwise, you're just wrong.) That kindness and openness now shine in his newest adventure, David Tennant Does a Podcast with..., which is just a delight. We were particularly interested in his conversation with... Read more →


Winter is not our favorite time of year around here. The first extended arctic blast just passed through our neighborhood, many of the sidewalks are icy because no one cleared them, and warm temperatures seem far away. However, all is not lost, because the BBC just tweeted a picture of the Doctor Who cast back at work on series 12! #DoctorWho is back in production! 🎬🎉 pic.twitter.com/vouZZfMuTV — Doctor Who Official (@bbcdoctorwho) January 23, 2019 As you can see, the four main characters are in the picture, and Chris Chibnall appears to still be in charge, so the big question...

Are you a Doctor Who fan who is wondering how to pass the time until the 13th Doctor returns in 2020? Are you a cranky old bugger who can't stop complaining about the modern era? Either way, we have terrific news for you. The BBC announced that classic Doctor Who episodes will be running on Twitch from January 5 - 25! To be clear we're talking about more than 500 episodes, and you can watch them for free! Brilliant! (See the schedule here.) Twitch ran a similar marathon last year which was great fun, and we expect the same from... Read more →


Happy New Year, Doctor Who fans! We can't think of a better way to start 2019 than with a new adventure that sees the Doctor face an old foe to end series 11. Is it a strong finale? Let's discuss. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: This entire story is set in motion because of a New Year's Eve kiss? Is this some kind of weird anti-sex campaign? "If you kiss someone, you might bring about the end of the world?" We know that eye. The BBC already spoiled the return of the villain, but we'd recognize that eye anywhere. Good lord,...
