Review: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

Like much of Britain, or even the world, Doctor Who holds a particularly special place in my heart and I’m overjoyed to see it re-materialise onto our screens. Spoilers to follow. Unlike the other eight million viewers, I was stuck on a train at 6:55pm Sunday evening, returning home after a lovely break in Wales with my girlfriend. Unfortunately combining this with dodgy WiFi and … Continue reading Review: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

Doctor Who: Smile fails to impress

Writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce returns to pen another below par attempt at a Doctor Who episode.
