On this week's episode of The Roundup, we’re joined by the absolutely lovely Alanna Bennett from Buzzfeed.
In this post-San Diego Comic Con episode we invite special friend and co-host Sam Maggs to fangirl over hot dudes and superheroes with us!
"Flatline" gets diminishing returns out of the Doctor's moral utilitarianism.
"Time Heist" is a Monet of an episode: good from far away, but a mess as soon as you look closer.
“Listen” addresses some major series issues in perhaps one of the most beautiful Doctor Who episodes yet.
Our lovely companion takes the Doctor up on an offer to go anywhere in time, choosing the period when Robin Hood would have been traipsing around England.
There's a new Doctor in town! Season 8 of Doctor Who kicks off with the dark and slightly confused "Deep Breath."
It is rare that a film is released in Europe before North America, unless it is a European production. And while The Adventures of Tintin is technically not European, its roots are, and so its release here in the United Kingdom last week was appropriate.
Spoiler Warning: "The Rebel Flesh" (6.5) and "The Almost People" (6.6). Also, I wouldn't read any further into this post unless you've watched the entirety of "A Good Man Goes To War" (6.7) right to the very end. I mean to the last second. You've been warned, alright? Spoilers.
I knew going into "The Rebel Flesh" and "The Almost People" that I wasn't going to like these episodes at all. After watching the trailer for this two-parter, the episodes immediately felt like the dismal Silurian two-parter in Series Five - "Cold Blood" and "The Hungry Earth". Both two-installment stories deal with representations of humanity and a war between humans and their human-like counterparts (now enemies).
This is the episode that Whovians have been waiting 47 years for, but just didn't know it. With a woman-turned-TARDIS, companions running through actual TARDIS corridors and Neil Gaiman on board, it would be very hard to go wrong. There is no doubt that "The Doctor's Wife" will go down as one of the most iconic episodes within both Series Six and the decades-spanning television series Doctor Who as a whole.
Tintin is not just a comic series; for many, it's a religion. The Adventures of Tintin has been in works for a while, and finally we have a trailer. With Steven Spielberg directing, Peter Jackson producing, Edgar Wright, Steven Moffat & Joe Cornish writing, and Jamie Bell, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg (among others) acting, I have high hopes for this film.
In the previous series, Steven Moffat hit the ground running, creating one of the most entertaining collections of episodes in Doctor Who history. With the eleventh incarnation of The Doctor garnering an impressive amount of critical praise and fan approval, its understandable that Moffat's sophomore effort is one of the most highly-anticipated television shows of the year.
When the BBC announced five years or more ago that they would be remounting the classic Doctor Who series, I was both thrilled and scared. I was raised on British television, and Doctor Who was always my favourite. While it has its ups and downs, I longed to be the Doctor (never the companion – […]
