Doctor Who Review: Captain Jack Harkness in Season 9????

  
Mhm, I know people have been liking the new season. I do, too. But it still can’t keep up with the prior seasons, I think. The woman who lived is the second part of The girl who died and shows us what becomes of Ashieldr, the hybrid girl that lives forever. It’s cool, that they followed up with it and basically set up a new opponent for the Doctor. But come on, Moffat… Where was the excitement? The threatening monster? The Catguy wasn’t scary at all!!!!! I remember the episodes with the 11th where him and the Ponds were trapped in the Hotel or the Doll house, the storyline with the crack and the Pandoraca. Those episodes were amazing! The woman who lived was rather weak compared to that. Come on, Moffat! 

 I also feel like they just throw references to past characters in to excite the fans, not really because they want to follow up with it. The Doctor mentions Captain Jack Harkness when he is talking to Ashieldr about living forever.

So my opinion is that the episode wasn’t really what I expected, a bit weak for my taste. 

What do you guys think?

Review: The girl who died 


I didn’t write a review for the last Doctor who episode, but this one is worthy of a review. First of all, it was not a very intense or special episode. It was a “normal” one. The Doctor lands in a community that is invaded and threatened by aliens. He doesn’t want to stay but does it anyways. He saves everyone through realizing a ridiculous but clever plan. Not that we haven’t see this before.

SPOILERS AHEAD! What makes the episode so special is his flashback! He is at the verge of loosing it, after the Viking girl died. But then he sees his reflection in the water and remembers how he saved the Italian family in the episode The fires of Pompey with Donna.

As you might now, David Tennant played the Doctor back then and Peter Capaldi was guest starring as the father of the family the Doctor saves. Doctor Who fans were speculating, if Moffat would pick up Capaldis former appreance on the show and turn it into an incredible Doctor Who twist. That would be sooooo sick! I hope they come back to this and have Tennant and Catherine Tate guest star as Capaldi is assuming his former role, but as a the 12th Doctor, who tries to get his Tardis back from the 10th. Wow, that would be great. It sure looks like they could pull it off.

But to be honest, I didn’t understand what Donna was mumbling (and crying) in the flashback. Do any of you guys know what she said?

Doctor Who: Under the lake Review

  
Episode 3 of the new Doctor Who season. 

Peter Capaldi and Clara travel to a research station down deep in the water where Ghosts haunt the crew. 

A thrilling episode that kind of reminds me of the David Tennant episodes where the 10th travelled to spaceships and space stations all the time, just to find them terrorized by some kind of monster. Even though this episode is exciting, it doesn’t quite come close to the Tennant Adventures. Under The Lake is s 2 part story and the cliff hanger was pretty good and I’m exited to see how it will be resolved.

Doctor Who Review: The Witch’s familiar 


Slight spoilers ahead…

Episode 2 of Season 9. A bit too much talk but it wouldn’t be Who if the Doctor and his nemesis weren’t engaged in a Talk- who plays who- I knew all along- battle. That basically sums up how Davros is taken care of.

Michelle Gomez aka Missy did a fantastic job- like always. I think she is a bit crazy anyways. If she weren’t the re-encarnated master I would want her to play the Doctor’s companion at some point. Well… Since Clara will leave the Show end of this year, there might be a spot open for her character to travel along the Doctor for some time, like River Song did.

All in all, a good episode. It was fun getting an inside look into the Daleks. I have hope for this season to be a lot better than the last, which is my least favorite Doctor Who season so far.

But I’m a little torn between liking and despising the Doctor’s new sonic sunglasses. I hope they design a cool new screwdriver for him. They can’t seriously write it out of the show. It’s like Superman without his cape… What do you think?

Doctor Who: The Magician’s apprentice REVIEW

  
If you haven’t watched the first episode of Doctor Who’s season 9 and don’t want to be spoiled, do not read beyond this paragraph! The first episode was amazing! I didn’t have high expectations because season 8 was rather weak but the first episode of the new season was really good!
—- CONTENT SPOILERS —-

Missy is back, Clara is back, the Doctor is preparing for his death- with a 3 week long party somewhere in time. Missy is looking for him and makes Clara help her find him. The Doctor seems to know what’s coming. He lost his Screwdriver, even sent his last will to Missy. Unexpectedly the three encounter Daleks and are brought as prisoners to their home planet where the events turn and twist, leaving the Doctor face to face with his arch enemy Davros who seemingly exterminate Clara, the Tardis and Missy. We find out that it was the Doctor’s doing that Davros exists and he now makes his way to the past to take his enemies’ life before he can even grow up to become the creator of the Daleks.

———–

The episode ends in a cliff hanger. I’m exited for episode 2! I hope the season keeps the speed. The beginning of the episode was really good- it feels like the Matt Smith episodes in season 6 which were epic!!!!

Good things to come, I hope!

My new Doctor Who cup

Being back in Europe for a while for vacation. A good opportunity to get another Who cup! I have the 10th cup but always wanted 11, too. The cups are 50th anniversary special cups and at the 50th anniversary we all knew already that Matt Smith would leave Doctor Who but his last lines were not revealed yet. Therefore he doesn’t have a last line on the cup.

   
     

“Last Chirstmas”- Best 12th Doctor Moment

tumblr_ng1vo6LTCR1qk6mq4o1_500

 

I’m going to be honest. Season 8 of Doctor Who didn’t blow me away. But we know, the new Doctor’s usual have a rough start (except for David Tennant maybe). Peter Capaldi’s acting is great but the writing wasn’t all that great in the 12th Doctor’s first season.

I was anticipating the Christmas Special, but was not expecting much out of the ordinary. But wow, the episode was the best out of the whole season, in my humble opinion! “Last Christmas” has the feel of David Tennant episodes, with twists and turns, dangerous alians that suck on your brain and lure you into a weird dream phantasies. I loved the Christmas special and I enjoyed it most out of all the season 8 adventures (even though the one with the Mummy on the Orient Express was cool, too).

Watch it, if you get the chance!
