The eras of Doctor Who‘s 50-plus year history are not so much measured by who was The Doctor, as much as who was the companion, especially during the new series. As the tenth season begins, The Doctor takes on a new companion, Bill, for a brand new adventure that may have you steering clear of puddles for a while. Meet me after the time and space jump for my thoughts on “The Pilot.”

Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio

adoc1

We have been bereft of new Doctor Who for an entire year (“The Power of the Daleks” doesn’t count), since the last Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” a madcap and bittersweet conclusion to the River Song saga. To trump that adventure, showrunner Steven Moffat pulls a new rabbit from his hat – Doctor Who does superheroes. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Return of Doctor Mysterio.”

We have been given a very cool early Christmas present this year from the folks at Doctor Who. For the last few weeks on BBC America, and some time ago in select theaters, a new animation of a classic lost series of The Doctor battling the Daleks was created from surviving audio of the episodes. For the first time in fifty years, we can witness “The Power of the Daleks,” meet me after the jump for my review.

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: A Cuppa Fandom

When temperatures drop and there’s a nip in the air, there’s nothing better than curling up under a cozy blanket with a nice cup of tea. This year, instead of giving friends and family just any old tea, give them a tea inspired by their favorite fandom from Adagio Teas. They have tea blends for almost every fandom.

Since winter has actually come, sip on a variety of Game of Thrones blends.

For the rebel, you can get the entire Suicide Squad.

And what could be better than settling down to watch The Doctor’s Christmas Day Special with a mug of Whovian Feels.

A sample tin, with fun fandom artwork, costs $5.00, or you can purchase an entire collection, like the entire potions collection for $24.00.

If  you’re particularly fond of that special geeky guy or gal, you can head to Society 6 where they have numerous mugs to match that perfect fandom tea.

Doctor Who S09 E12: Hell Bent

Remember that old rule? You know the one. “The Doctor lies.” It’s not just him. It’s his heritage. It’s his people. Just because The Doctor comes from the Time Lords of Gallifrey, some new schoolers might guess that the Time Lords are the good guys. Not true. The Time Lords are among The Doctor’s greatest enemies. They lie, don’t forget this. They fear him. Proof positive, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Hell Bent.”

With Clara Oswald presumed dead (don’t count your chickens, or ravens, and all that), and The Doctor captured and sold to a mysterious enemy, then teleported away, things are not looking good for the multi-part end of a “Doctor Who” season that has been almost all cliffhangers. With this episode, we may be looking at the biggest one yet. Meet me after the time and space jump for my thoughts on “Heaven Sent.”
