Greetings Whovians! We took last week off but today the Who Review is back and ready to recap all the Gallifreyan news that’s fit to print. Last week saw the Doctor masterminding an elaborate time heist at the far off Bank of Karabraxos and while that tale had a happy ending, this season so far as a whole has been pretty heavy and serious. However, “The Caretaker” changes things up and brings us something of a lighthearted romantic comedy starring Clara Oswald, Danny Pink, and the biggest third wheel in the universe: the Doctor.
It’s Doctor time, Evil Geeks! Last week we saw the new Doctor learn how to be a hero again from none other than Robin Hood, but before one can go about being a hero, there’s an emotion that one must master first: Fear. If you can’t overcome various fears (i.e. being alone, the dark, clowns) then you simply aren’t hero material. The Doctor has traversed all of time and space, so clearly he’s completely mastered fear and there’s nothing he’s scared of, right? Right???
