Sad that you aren’t going to get any new Doctor Who episodes this year? Me too, but why not delve in to one of the many spin off series instead? That’s what I did, and naturally I chose to start with Torchwood, since I don’t think anyone can get enough of Captain Jack Harkness.
What’s up, Evil Geek Whovians? It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve checked in with the Doctor, but Tardis travelling season is finally back! What’s our favorite Gallifreyan been up to since we last saw him? We’ll if you saw the recently released prequel to The Magician’s apprentice, you’ll know that he’s been keeping busy digging some wells and trying to do a little meditating. Why the wells? So he can finally get some decent tasting water! Why the meditation? Ummm, yeah… about that…
After a year of intermittently binge watching Doctor Who, I have successfully caught up and watched all the episodes of the most reason reboot (8 seasons). Just in time for this August’s release of series 9. And you can do the same! If you like binge watching shows, or can avoid the side effects of this activity depicted here, you should have just enough time to devour all 8 series in time for our second season with Capaldi. If you are already caught up, well, there are so many reasons to watch and rematch Doctor Who. I had been told by many to check this show out and they were right, it is phenomenal. Here is my list of why I think you should watch the show, buzzfeed style. Allons-y!
All shows must come to an end, or at least a break until they are remade in another format. So this past week I enjoyed finishing up Merlin, a BBC series about a young Arthur, Merlin, and Camelot that I have enjoyed quite a bit.
Merry Christmas, Whovians! Being the Who-heads that we are, we’re keyed in on a little secret that most of the world doesn’t know about; that secret being that we all know the best part of Christmas isn’t the awesome presents, the great home cooked meals, or even spending time wit your family. All that stuff really makes for a great day, but the thing that really ties the holiday together is that you spend the whole day taking comfort in the fact that no matter how merry a Christmas you’re having, it’s only going to get better because there’s a brand new episode of Doctor Who on at the end of the day. You could be having the absolute best day of your life and just when you think it can’t possibly get any better, that’s when the Christmas special starts. Conversely, that yule tide blessing is also a mistletoe wrapped punch in the gut because the Christmas specials always have a way of leaving us in tears when it’s all said and done. This year, we’ll be hearing from a few of the Evil Geek Whovians regarding what they thought of the newest Christmas special. Word on the street is that this is going to be Clara Oswald’s curtain call, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed by the BBC as of the time of the writing of this article. Could it be that our stocking this year will be stuffed with thousands of tears as Clara’s ego maybe gets the better of her and lands her in a situation she isn’t able to wiggle out of. Will this be the Doctor and Clara’s last Christmas? Let’s find out!
We’ve come a long way this season, Evil Geeks. It seems like just yesterday I was typing up the review for the season premiere, now here we are going over the season finale. We had twelve episodes in a row, which for Doctor Who is pretty impressive after several years of half-seasons broken up by a long hiatus. There’s been some good and some bad this season, but it’s all lead up to this two-part finale that hit the ground running last week with an episode full of “HOLY SHIT!!!” moments. The Master is back, this time regenerated into the guise of Missy, and she’s brought an army of Cybermen potentially numbering into the billions. What’s her endgame here? What about Clara and her reckless level of overconfidence? Will she pay for the “sins” she’s committed this season even more than she has already? Let’s get down to it!
