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.
Greetings Whovian Evil Geeks! C-Mart was partying it up in NYC this past weekend for the 2014 New York Comic Con, hence the lateness of this article. Since we’re already half-way to a new episode, I figured this post would be better used to discuss the aftermath of Mummy on the Orient Express as opposed to giving you a recap of the episode. Let’s talk about Clara’s not-so-final hurrah!
It’s TARDIS time, Evil Geeks! Last week we got a comedic romp through Coal Hill School as Clara and Danny got a little closer and Danny meets the Doctor for the first time. Clara began taking her first steps away from the Doctor in The Caretaker; she starting to see a life with Danny as much better alternative to a life spent constantly running from danger with someone she seems increasingly distanced from. If that’s not a heavy enough load to deal with, Courtney Woods, a student from Coal Hill School where Clara works, has not only found out about the Doctor, but she’s also tagging along with him and Clara on adventures. Their latest adventure takes place just after Courtney is told by the Doctor that she’s “not special”, which has caused her to be depressed and is affecting her grades. Where would you think would be a good place to take a teenager who needs a little pick me up? How about the Moon in the year 2049…just when it’s about to hatch?!?!
