Raggedy man, goodnight: A Review of the Doctor Who Christmas Special

In May, Mat Smith announced he was retiring from being the Doctor. And, to be honest, most of the fandom felt sad about it. He was our hip, young, cool Doctor. Then Peter Capaldi was announced as the next regeneration. Again, most of the fandom reacted positively (especially after seeing gifs of him in In the Thick of It). So of course, we all expected a great, wonderful, amazing send off for Matt, as great and heartbreaking as we got for David Tennant.


Moffat, you let me down again. Continue reading

While this is of course somewhat sad news, I personally can’t wait to see what projects he has coming up. I just hope he gets as lovely of a send off as David Tennant had.

You’re my impossible girl: Season Seven of Doctor Who in review

So Doctor Who ended last Saturday. Well, this season/series (for wherever you’re reading from). And obviously it was picked up for another season/series. But some of the deep love for the show is starting to fade.

WARNING: After the cut there will be spoilers. Spoilers galore. Like River’s notebook. But worse. Tread with caution. Continue reading

Ley and Emily Have Feels: Doctor Who Edition

So for those of you who aren’t Whovians (shame on you), every Christmas there’s a Doctor Who Christmas special. Sometimes it’s a stand alone episode, while other times it’s a turning point in a series. This year’s special introduced Clara, the Doctor’s new companion. And, much like with everything else, we have mixed feelings about it.
