    Steven Moffat's Writing for 'Doctor Who' at Christmas Is Enchanting, Here's Why

    Steven Moffat's Writing for 'Doctor Who' at Christmas Is Enchanting, Here's Why

    Doctor Who at Christmas is everyone’s favourite thought. Well, until 2018 that was when the show dematerialised from its usual Christmas Day slot and moved to New Year’s Day instead. Every year (well, most years) since the show was revived back in 2005 by Russell T. Davies, the show has produced a whopper of a series followed by a festive special, all of which taking a different tone. There’s been a giant spider, which helped formed planet Earth, dream crabs, talking ‘cactuses’ (cacti?) and so much more.

    Doctor Who has been off our screens for quite some time now and its return is highly anticipated.

Its move from a Saturday to a Sunday proved to be a success.

    There Were These Short-Lived TV Shows at the Turn of the Millennium

    There Were These Short-Lived TV Shows at the Turn of the Millennium

    At the turn of the Millennium there were some very short lived sci-fi shows broadcasted on the newer baby networks. There were two on UPN, one was on the WB, and the last one was on the Showtime Cable network. They lasted for less than one season and had less than 20 episodes produced. I watched all four shows back in the day and generally enjoyed all of them. They weren't the best but not the worst shows out there, they just didn't have enough ratings.

    Two Hours of Future Past

    Two Hours of Future Past

    Nowhere is the disconnect between ambition and execution in television drama more apparent than science-fiction. What made Space: 1999 different from its 1970s peers is that at least in its first season this disconnect had little to do with budgetary constraints and was more a function of story and character - areas where more modestly budgeted programs frequently outshined it. Dubious science aside, Space: 1999 often posed intriguing ethical and philosophical questions (at least in its first season). Unfortunately, the drama all too often hinged on characters acting out of character, leaving even many who enjoyed it wondering if a bit more time and money should have been spent on the scripts.
