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.
Doctor Who Series 12 was filled with many shocks, surprises and twists, leaving fans with plenty of content and information to pull apart and speculate on as we await the upcoming festive special and new series. If you are yet to watch the twelfth series of the hit BBC series, read at your own risk.
The lore of Evangelion might already crazy with its post-apocalyptic setting, giant robots (that are not actual robots), and various Judeo-Christian reference, but there’s more than meets the eye in Tokyo-3. Elements in the backstory and the main story itself tell hints about the world
When Doctor Who returned as an ongoing TV series in 2005, fans old and new were introduced to the Ninth Doctor, portrayed by Christopher Eccleston. He played an incarnation of The Doctor who is haunted by the results of the Time War, a Doctor who feels alone in the universe with his homeworld Gallifrey gone. Though Eccleston only had one 13-episode series as The Doctor, he became a favorite among some fans who have been clamoring for his return to the franchise.
Star Trek: Picard was actually really unexpected. I have never been a big Star Trek fanatic but I have watched episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Unfortunately I did not watch some of the movies that came out after the TV series ended. Still I know the premise and some of the backstory of some of the characters.
*WARNING: Spoilers ahead*
Over the past two days I found a treasure! I watched one of the most exciting, innovating and so relatable in these times series - Amazon Prime's Original Series - Upload. If you haven’t watched the series yet, I recommend you head to Amazon Prime and you do so fast!
The Timeless Child retcon presents a problem for the long running British institution that is Doctor Who. I recognise that this isn’t exactly a hot take; the finale of Jodie Whitaker’s second season as The Doctor aired well over a month ago. However, I wasn’t on Vocal back then, so what are you going to do about it? Also, now that everyone has had their chance to watch it, you can’t complain about the massive spoilers I’ll be hurling about with almost spiteful abandon; you’ve been warned.
