The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part Two

On Tuesday I shared my thoughts on the Russell T. Davies Era of Doctor Who (the Ninth and Tenth Doctors). Today I'm so excited to share my thoughts on the Steven Moffat Era (the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors)! Please remember that the Moffat Era did bring me into Doctor Who, so my personal views/preferences are… Continue reading The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part Two

The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part One

I've been looking forward to writing this ever since I got four whole series of Doctor Who for Christmas! I've already reviewed Series 8, Series 9, and Series 10, but except for this very old (and slightly preachy) post from 2012 and an announcement back in 2017 that I'd started watching Series 7, I haven't really talked about… Continue reading The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part One

The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

Emily of the delightful blog The Altogether Unexpected included me in this fun tag! It's been a while since I got to really fangirl on this blog (and I get to do it again next time for my Ultimate Doctor Who Recap Post, yippee!). I'm so excited about finally getting around to answering her questions! (This… Continue reading The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

I'm pretty sure I mentioned in a previous post that my mom and I have been watching Doctor Who together--and it has been fantastic. Her no-nonsense commentary and her indignation if ever I fail to warn her about a Scary Moment are worth their weight in gold. We love Eleven and Twelve the best, agree… Continue reading Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Last week I just had zero blogging inspiration. If I don't have anything to say then I'd better not say anything at all. But then this week, we had a serious health scare/crisis with my grandfather. He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he's doing great--but needless to say, I've… Continue reading Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Story Structure Study: “The Time of the Doctor”

This post actually began as a self-imposed "homework assignment." I never thought it might be blog material! But I have a mild case of Creative Burnout, and as part of my self-care I decided to re-watch a Doctor Who Christmas episode...but with a writer's eye. What I mean by that is this: I dissected and… Continue reading Story Structure Study: “The Time of the Doctor”

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 10

I always said I wanted to finish out Peter Capaldi's run as the Twelfth Doctor--and I'm proud to announce I finally worked up the courage to do the thing: I've seen Doctor Who: Series 10*. And yes, my emotions felt like they'd been run through one of those old-timey laundry wringers by the end--BUT IT… Continue reading TV Review: Doctor Who Series 10
