A week ago Saturday saw the conclusion of the eighth season of “Doctor Who.” Even though this is a week late, I wanted to take some time to think not only about the season finale, but the overall arc.
So we are now up to Episode 10 for this current season of “Doctor Who.” The episode “In the Forest of the Night” finds the Doctor, Clara, Danny, and a whole bunch of annoying kids trying to solve the mystery as to why a new forest has grown all around London. Actually, it’s not just London, but we find that the entire Earth has been engulfed in trees. To make matters worse, a Solar Flare is on it’s way to Earth which threatens to destroy the planet.
“Flatline” – Episode 9 of this 8th season of “Doctor Who” has finally brought the show up to par. We have a fantastic mystery, a compelling villain(s) or monster(s), a situation the Doctor has never seen before, and a storyline that someone can actually follow with an ending that doesn’t make you go “huh?”
We’re now up to episode 8 in this latest run of “Doctor Who.” In this episode entitled “Mummy on the Orient Express” the Doctor and Clara agree to go on one more final adventure as they board a spaceship train to the stars.
“Kill the Moon” is the latest episode of “Doctor Who” which just aired the other night. Seven episodes down and I’m not seeing much of an improvement in terms of story quality. It had its entertaining moments (mostly thanks to Capaldi), but the stories and creative elements seem to still be lacking. In my opinion, the show appears to be running on empty and needs a bit of a jump start again.
We’re up to episode 6 now in this new season (the 8th) of “Doctor Who.” In ‘The Caretaker’ the Doctor goes undercover at Clara’s school in order to catch an alien killer robot known as the Skovox Blitzer. Along the way, he finally meets Clara’s boyfriend, Danny Pink and befriends one of the students, Courtney Woods.
“Time Heist” is Peter Capaldi’s fifth episode in as the new Doctor. His run of episodes is definitely getting better, but I still feel as if something is missing from this season. It just doesn’t seem as much fun as the previous seasons. And I don’t know why. As I mentioned previously, maybe it’s just time to change up companions. Maybe mix up the chemistry a bit with some new blood.
“Doctor Who’s” 4th episode this year I feel was a step up from the previous three episodes, albeit a little out there and weird in a slightly confusing way. Maybe I’m just still getting used to the new tone of the show.
Another week came and went for that everlasting Timelord known only as ‘The Doctor.’ This weeks episode of “Doctor Who” had the Doctor facing off with that legendary thief of the forest himself – Robin Hood! Oh yeah, and his merry men.
