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?!?!
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???
