Promo Pics For Doctor Who "The Lie of the Land"

Doctor Who - The Pyramid at the End of the World Review

Doctor Who:
The Pyramid at the End of the World
By Peter Harness and
Steven Moffat

“Bill, what have you done?”

“The Pyramid at the End of the World” is the second part of three of the story that features The Monks and their attempt to take over the world.  This story was co-written by Peter Harness and Steven Moffat and it more or less sets up what will happen in the next story “The Lie of the Land” which will be written by Toby Whitehouse and is the conclusion of this three part story.  Like what I wrote last week I really cannot grade this story until I see all three parts but so far I liked “Extremis” a lot better than “The Pyramid at the End of the World”.

Doctor Who - Extremis Review

Doctor Who:
By Steven Moffat 

“Doctor, will you read the Veritas?”

Extremis is the first part of a three part story that is penned by Steven Moffat while the next two episodes will have different writers along with Steven Moffat.  I have to admit that I had to watch Extremis a couple of times to figure out what was going as it was a typical Steven Moffat story with a lot of stuff going on.  In fact that is one of the reasons to watch it again as there was a lot going on that you definitely didn’t pick everything up on first viewing.  You might not get everything on the second viewing either but anyway Extremis was a better story than anything that Steven Moffat wrote for last season.

The Pyramid At The End Of The World. 
Written by Peter Harness and Steven Moffat, and directed by Daniel Nettheim.

A 5,000 year-old Pyramid stands at the centre of a war zone, where the Chinese, Russian and American armies are about to clash. There are many problems with that, but the one that intrigues the Doctor is this: there wasn’t a pyramid there yesterday.

The Doctor, Bill and Nardole face an alien invasion unlike any other, and before conquest can begin, these aliens need the consent of the human race…

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas.

Doctor Who - Oxygen Review (Mild Spoilers)

Doctor Who:
Jamie Mathieson

“Tell me a joke before you leave.”

Space Zombies, I’m not a big fan of zombie movie or even zombie television shows so when I saw the trailer for Oxygen I was a bit hesitant if I would like this particular story at all.  Well once I finished watching “Oxygen” that was not the case at all.  I really enjoyed it but not necessarily for the zombies; luckily they were not featured much, but for the overall message and what happened at the end.

Doctor Who - Knock Knock Review

Doctor Who:
Knock Knock
By Mike Bartlett

“This is the part of my life you're not in.”

“Knock Knock” is mainly about Bill and her friends looking to rent a house while at university. They were not having any luck until an older man offered them a house for rent that was cheap and had enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone. But of course if it’s too good to be true it genuinely is as The Doctor who is helping Bill move in is instantly alerted to something not right about the house.  The Doctor senses something alien and as usual he is correct as the whole house seems to be alive and it’s alive and infested with alien bugs.  The creepy thing is the house won’t let you leave and it seems to open up the walls and sucks you in.

Into the Time Vortex Podcast - Episode 41 - Doctor Who - Knock Knock

Details for Doctor Who - Vortex Ice & Cortex Fire

Out this month is a 6th Doctor audio adventure that features two stories with Flip as the companion. You can order this Main Range audio adventure from the Big Finish website.

Vortex Ice by Jonathan Morris

In search of ‘exotic particles’, the Doctor and Flip arrive 700 feet underground, in a mine in Northern Mexico – only to run into a scientific expedition. Among their number, an exobiologist. They’re all on the hunt for alien life! Deep underground, the team finally uncovers a cave of vast crystals – like ice, despite the heat. And inside the crystal: something frozen. Something trapped in time. If only it were something simple, like a monster. But it’s far, far worse than that.

Cortex Fire by Ian Potter

The Doctor brings Flip to the futuristic city of Festin, the best vantage point to witness a unique astronomical light show. In a city governed by the all-powerful network known as the Cortex, they’re soon identified as outsiders – nihilists, perhaps, responsible for a wave of terror that’s been sweeping the city… But the truth is different. The people of Festin are burning up. Spontaneously combusting. And no-one knows why.

Written By: Jonathan Morris, Ian Potter
Directed By: Ken Bentley

Colin Baker (The Doctor), Lisa Greenwood (Flip), Shobu Kapoor (Sai Chopra), Orlando Seale (Dylan Argent), Monty D’Inverno (Jannik Woolf), Rebecca Todd (Khoralla), Simon Dylan-Kane (Halus), Eve Webster (Bav/ Cortex/ Enforcer). Other parts played by members of the cast.

Doctor Who - Thin Ice Review

Doctor Who:
Thin Ice
Sarah Dollard

“I don’t have the luxury of outrage.”

The third episode of Series 10 of Doctor is the story written by Sarah Dollard titled “Thin Ice”.  It takes place during 1814 during the last Frost Fair on the river Thames.  But there is something not right with this Frost Fair as people seem to have been disappearing and there are also green lights under the ice.  Not to mention a giant creature chained down in the Thames whose excrement seems to burn a lot stronger and longer than coal.  I do believe that scene where Bill goes “No Sh…..” is one of the funniest in the new series in quite some time.
