Writing about the fourth Doctor Who Christmas Special is, admittedly, about as much fun as sitting down to eat a bowl of shredded wheat.
At some point the Season Four finale of Doctor Who, “Journey’s End,” will stand on its own.
“The Stolen Earth” is a wonderful and sometimes frustrating episode.
In addition to overseeing the seasonal story arcs, Russell T Davies writes more scripts for Doctor Who than anyone else, and he does it every year.
“Forest of the Dead” is an episode that left me so thoroughly perplexed that I had to see it several times to even begin thinking I understood it.
The name Steven Moffat has been the stamp of quality on Doctor Who scripts over the past three seasons.
I’m sure I read an interview with Russell T Davies some time ago where he referred to “The Unicorn and The Wasp” as “the first comedy we’ve done.”
As a title, “The Doctor’s Daughter” conjures up exciting possibilities, but as an episode it leaves the viewer wanting more.
This is easily the best of the early season, two-part action spectacles Doctor Who has yet offered up.
The episode is a killer setup for this type of two-parter, which always grabs a couple pre-midseason slots.
“Planet of the Ood” is a really strange episode (and yes—I had to restrain myself from describing it as odd).
The episode tinkers with a spot in the season where similar installments have been little more than clever dives into pseudohistory.
After more or less trashing “Voyage of the Damned” last week, it’d be all too easy to start a trend by picking apart Season Four’s first proper episode.
The annual Christmas specials are appetizers dished up to satiate diners between the seasonal main courses.
There are a lot of things to admire about Doctor Who’s audacious third season finale, “Last of the Time Lords.”
It’s difficult to discuss Doctor Who’s penultimate Season Three installment, “The Sound of Drums”, without also talking about the events of the episode that follow it.
If “Blink” was the perfect standalone episode of Doctor Who, then “Utopia” is just the opposite.
Is it possible that “Blink” is the greatest Doctor Who episode ever created? Maybe.
Before moving on to more important issues, let’s talk scarecrows.
