The best science fiction television from every decade.
The “Fam” Deserved Better
In honour of the confirmation of Jodie Whittaker's 13th Doctor Who final season in 2022, I wanted to look back on my experience returning to the Whovian universe these past three years. Whittaker will star in a new six-part series later this year, and three specials next year, before she exits.
Freema Agyeman returns as Doctor Martha Jones!
I can officially tick this one off my Big Finish Wishlist. Three days after I wrote that, Big Finish made the announcement many of us had been waiting for. After more than a decade away from the TARDIS, the Tenth Doctor’s companion, Martha Jones, is returning to the world of Doctor Who, in a brand-new box set of full-cast audio drama from Big Finish Productions.
Rediscovering Doctor Who through Big Finish
When I think back on the Doctor Who franchise, I’ve not been the most consistent fan - I’ve fallen in and out of love with the series since Russell T. Davis revived the series way back in 2005.
Torchwood: The Five People to Kill in Middlesbrough - REVIEW
When a spaceship crashes on Middlesbrough it’s very sad, of course. But we at Torchwood have long had a plan to contain such a disaster.
A Single Beam of Light
It is difficult for people to understand the alphabet is arranged in no particular order. Perhaps more difficult still is the understanding the universe and our world has been shaped in no particular order. Order is an artifice. Shape an illusion. Everything scatters in random patterns. It is our minds that seeks unity and therefore we see it everywhere. Through the eyes of the viewer order, pattern and shape are arranged. So why then I thought? Why can’t I see it anymore?
A Release for the 'Doctor Who' Series 10 Soundtrack Looks Slim With No License Issued
Doctor Who: a show that takes us through time and space, many adventures, scary creatures. Some people love the show for the actors who play the Doctor and the companions, others for eras themselves, some, the iconic music that accompanies each story.
"We Love Stories" - Audiophile Pride
Since discovering Big Finish Productions in 2018, I have been completely hooked on the imaginative and compelling audio dramas they've created - not just their continuations of the Doctor Who franchise with original cast members reprising their roles, but writing fully fleshed out and original characters that represent the LGBTQ Community.
John Bishop's 'Doctor Who' Character to be Revealed as a Relation to Former Companion?
She’s back, and with a new companion! It’s been half a year since Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Ryan (Tosin Cole) departed the TARDIS in “Revolution of the Daleks” and since then, we’ve yet to learn anything new about the new companion, Dan, played by comedian John Bishop.
Review of The Nevers, Part I
The Nevers 1.1: Never Say Never I wasn't going to watch The Nevers. I'd pretty much given up on superpowers on television after Heroes. On the other hand, how can you resist late 1890s London, the prime of Victorian times, the birth of The Time Machine, on the cusp of the 20th century? I couldn't, and I'm glad of it.
How Sci-Fi and Fantasy Have Gotten Me Through the Pandemic
Life has been looking like my favorite dystopian novel, lately - and that is not something I am particularly stoked about.
Writing: The Imposter Syndrome
My last article on Class focused primarily on the death of innocence, which is something all of the teenage characters go through throughout the TV (and audio spin-off) series. None more so than Tanya Adeola, the youngest of the group and although the smartest, suffers with severe imposter syndrome.
People of Earth
Alien conspiracy theories and alien abduction allegations have been circling our society since at least the 1950s. With little to no evidence of whether these things are true or false. As well as complete government denial for decades. Many of these alien allegations and experiences have been looked at as just crazy talk. Even today in the year 2021, if you came out and told people we had specific species of aliens that have been watching and living among us. People would look at you like you were absolutely bonkers. Yet everyone can agree that there must be other life forms out there on other planets. In the world of People of Earth, a TBS science fiction comedy series, alien conspiracy theories come to life in a world similar to ours. The people of small town Beacon, New York socially shun the alien “conspiracy” group called StarCrossed. While we the viewers see that the aliens are in fact real and abducting people.
