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…
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!
Happy Sunday, my fellow Whovian Evil Geeks! Last week we saw Clara travel further down a hubris filled path, on her way possibly to tragedy. Will she set herself right? Can she get over being the “Impossible Girl” and find a more level-headed approach to traveling with the Doctor? Finally, will the lies she’s been telling both Danny and the Doctor finally catch up with her? This week’s Episode “In the Forest of the Night” finds the Doctor, Clara, Danny, and a whole load of kids from the Coal Hill School trying to deal with a mysterious amount of foliage that has sprung up overnight, covering the entire globe? Is this an invasion of some sorts or is there a more benevolent reason for the unexpected growth?
It’s TARDIS time, Evil Geeks! This week finds the Doctor as a prisoner in his own home; thanks to a steadily decreasing in size TARDIS door. Either someone left the TARDIS in the dryer a little too long or something is siphoning off the physical dimensions of the advanced craft causing it to shrink. Clara manages to get out while the blue box is kiddie sized, but the Doctor ends up trapped when it goes down to about 1 foot tall. At the same time all this spatial wackiness is going on, in the town where the TARDIS has landed, people are disappearing only to have an image of themselves pop up on a mural at a memorial for the missing. Could this be related to the TARDIS shrinking? It’s up to Clara, armed with the Doctor’s sonic and psychic paper to figure out what is causing the anomalies.
