Doctor Who reviews

I reviewed every episode of Doctor Who, Series 5, the debut series of the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. Then I did the same for Series 6, and for much of Series 7. Then I decided to put together a book of reviews of all Eleventh Doctor episodes (including the ones not on the blog) and some new material. Here are the reviews, in order, and the posts about the in-progress book:






See also my book, based in part on these blog-postsThe Eleventh Doctor: a critical ramble through Matt Smith’s tenure in Doctor Who. It discusses every Matt Smith episode, including the second half of Series 7 and the various specials.


Series 9

“The truth is I have not really felt moved to write about Doctor Who much in the Peter Capaldi era. I can’t put a finger on what it is. It might be that he feels a bit like an actor playing the role of The Doctor, while Matt Smith felt like The Doctor. It might be that Moffatt has reached the natural end of his term (much as Davies has by Doomsday) and has nothing really new left to say. It might be that I am just too worn our by the sheer mundanity of Clara.” — from here.

  1. still watching Dr Who?

  2. Yes; but not obsessively any more. (For example, I have yet to catch up with last week’s episode.)

    I should really write a post on why that is.

    Have you heard the news about Doctor Who?

  7. Yes! I am delighted that Whittaker is moving on, but much more delighted at the prospect of seeing the back of Chibnall. (For reasons, see The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos: too late, had your chance, muffed it.)
