Doctor Who Story 294 – The Haunting of Villa Diodati

Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, I know who one of those is, and I’ve heard of the other.

I’m 33 minutes into this episode. This is all I’ve written so far.

Doctor Who Story 293 – Can You Hear Me?


Doc’s been getting a bit squirmy, running off to do personal stuff and leaving the companions behind. If they’re your best friends, maybe tell them about yourself. That’s what friends do.

Doctor Who Story 292 – Praxeus

If I continue two a day, I’ll be done my Doctor Who rewatch at the end of the week.

Oh, I remember this episode. It was one of the environmental ones that were hitting the audience over the head with a baguette.

Did she just say a talking cat in Ontario? Is it Moki?

This episode is boring.

Running on sand is the worst. The Doctor should know not to park there.

Doctor Who Story 291 – Fugitive of the Judoon

I don’t love the Judoon, though I do quite their first appearance.

Well, something’s going to go wrong with this couple. And enter the Doctor and friends.

Creepy bartender creeping.

Oh yeah, Captain Jack! I like him thinking that Graham is the Doctor.

Jack being giddy when he finds out the Doctor is a woman is great.

Three of you? I had a dream about this once.

Captain Jack about the the Doctor’s companions

I’m bored by the A story. It’s okay, but all the stories are a bit meh, and one is fun with Captain Jack.

Oh, I forgot that she’s the Doctor.

Ahh, rewriting the entire Doctor Who mythology. But now they can make anyone the Doctor.

Doctor Who Story 290 – Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror

Good moustache, glowing eyes guy.

So many great moustaches.

It’s the guy from Hustle. Whose brother is Gene Hunt.

Is that the spider lady from “Runaway Bride?”

Apparently the spider is Anjli Mohindra who played Rani in Sarah Jane.

Oh, she’s not the same species as the Spiders from Mars.

The baddie is a Pakled.

Rani! Stop being a naughty girl. Sarah Jane would be so pissed.

Doctor Who Story 289 – Orphan 55

I think something’s gonna go wrong.

Ryan’s infection from the Hopper virus was great.

The Doctor needs to stop sexualizing Hyph3n.

The baddie looks terrible.

Also, poor Hyph3n.

Ooo! Mind meld!

I forgot how heavy-handed this episode of Doctor Who is. Here’s a hammer, here’s an explanation of global warming, go to town.

Doctor Who Story 288 – Spyfall

Part One

Be wery wery qwiet, I’m hunting trucks.

Americans are everywhere.

Poor Ryan, I know what it feels like to be unable to play sports.

Doctor Who writers have a weird obsession with GPS.

Oh, it’s Stephen Fry. He’s an asshole.

Why is this CEO an asshole? He insults his mates over the intercom?

Don’t let the Master loose in your TARDIS.

CEO is a bad shot.

I love his house as the TARDIS.

He’s so good as the Master.

Part Two

How’d they get out of the airplane?

The TARDIS being a house just makes sense.

Paris is fun.

Saying a pacifist is a bold stance to take during World War II, sure it’s bold, but it’s also wrong.

Okay Doctor, leaving the Master (a brown man) with the Nazis is just cruel.

So Capaldi just got Gallifrey back, and they decide to destroy it right away.

Doctor Who Story 287 – Resolution

Oh, we get a teaser this time.

Of course the British one fails.

Charlotte Ritchie! So much Taskmaster love! Though like Lee Mack, I knew her before from Fresh Meat.

Poor Charlotte, with a spider on her back.

That’s a Dalek?

Why is the black archive available online?

Eighty-eight miles an hour!!!!!!

The Dalek attacking the cop is fantastic.

I. Will. Fight!

Charlotte Ritchie

The family with no data is amazing.

Aww, dad hugs!

Doctor Who Story 286 – The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos

Oh look, it’s about Kolos.

I don’t remember this episode at all, based on the first 30 seconds.

Okay, I did see it, but it wasn’t memorable.

Graham, you’re better than revenge.

Why did Ryan never call him “Grahamdad?”

Tim Shaw is too boring of a bad guy.

I like the Doctor calling her TARDIS a “ghost monument.”

Doctor Who Story 285 – It Takes You Away

Eating soil? Who does she think she is? Constable Benton Frasier?

Don’t call her “sweetheart,” Yas!

I remember liking this episode.

I don’t like Ryan in this episode.

Aww Ryan, now I’m happy with you, calling Graham “granddad.” <3
