The best science fiction television from every decade.
Following the departure of Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole in “Revolution of the Daleks”, Series 13 of Doctor Who is already shaping up to be a cracker. Comedian John Bishop has already been announced as the new companion called Dan, who will join Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill in the next series.
- Warning: This article includes spoilers - Doctor Who has been treating us big time this year. On New Year’s Day, Jodie Whittaker returned as the Thirteenth Doctor in an extended series 12 opener, which saw the return of the Master, played by Sacha Dhawan. As the series continued, old faces – including the Judoon – made an appearance.
Doctor Who returned this year with Series 12; Jodie Whittaker’s second series as the Thirteenth Doctor. The twelfth series proved to be widely popular and a massive step up from Series 11, including the return of familiar enemies, planets and companions.
Every since Doctor Who was revived in 2005, I have watched every episode live on television since. Never missing one. If that's not devotion I don't know what is
I am a little late to this party of a show as I was skeptical that the overall portrayal of AI and robotics is an overly saturated ideal in the cinematic universe. It is with great regret and apology that I did not sink my teeth into this show from its' inception. The telling of this story was nothing short of masterful. Of course, there are the undertones of "Terminator" elements within the story: man creates machines and machines in turn destroy all of humanity in a hope to save themselves but this is far from the heart of the show itself.
Well, 2020 has been eventful, wouldn’t you agree? Putting reality aside for now; stepping into the Whoniverse, 2020 graced us with a brand-new series of Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. We can all agree that Series 12 was one big step up from Series 11, and that wasn’t because of all the twists and shocks.
I recently saw BlacKkKlansman by Spike Lee, and of course after completing the 2 hour and 15 minute movie, I thought of Battlestar Galactica….What, wait a minute? Let me explain.
Every once in a while, some form of media comes along that grips me so completely that I never stop talking about it ever, to the disdain of anyone who’s ever had to listen to me. Sometimes it’s a book, sometimes it’s a movie, but mostly it’s television, and mostly it’s television that’s been cancelled after one or two seasons.
Last week, it was announced that the Disney+ series The Mandalorian season 2 will premiere on October 30. Plus, we got the new title poster, and now a trailer! The marketing of The Mandalorian season 2 has been ramping up and is finally going to be closing the gap between now and the premiere. We were offered with an exclusive first look on The Mandalorian season 2 along with new images and interviews with cast and crew, and now we have a trailer with a glimpse of what is to come.
Multi-Doctor stories from Doctor Who can be fun, and the new audio from Big Finish is no exception. Titled Out of Time, this audio takes place in the Cathedral of Contemplation, which exists outside of Spacetime. The Tenth Doctor, played once again by David Tennant, arrives first (from our point of view, anyway). However, his past incarnation, the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) shows up, and then things get a bit complicated, as one might expect.
To say Doctor Who has always been a hit with its own fanbase is difficult to say. This comes down to how a character travelling through space and time is bound to have episodes that resonate more with fans, than others they do not. It is a tricky thing to pull-off, especially when historical figures are involved. Often the show knocks it out of the park with these depictions, other times it knocks it into audiences heads and starts a fit of rage from within. The latest series of the show is a prime example of this, with some aspects fans loving and others them wishing the writers had not tried. It is perhaps a time where the fanbase in completely divided. So to save the Time Lord from falling into a time crack to cancellation, here is what the writers need to do to save themselves.

While quickly fading into oblivion off all the publicity it received as a Star Wars rip off, core fans never forgot it, and the show’s star made its resurrection almost a life’s pursuit. But before Richard Hatch became ensnared in Galactica’s mythology, he was a down to earth Classic TV actor who first received name recognition by replacing Michael Douglas in the Streets of San Francisco.
