  • Doctor Who: Time-Flight

    Doctor Who: Time-Flight

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fine, I guess, but the flight crew are quite good actually.


    Bit cruel of the Doctor to just abandon Tegan, though.

  • Doctor Who: Earthshock

    Doctor Who: Earthshock

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Those credits...


    Max, you're really not gonna like this story... Not only does Tegan insult the Dinosaurs, but Adric genocides them! Can you confirm if Dinosaurs had 'Pea Brains'?


    Aside from everything to do with Adric, the next best thing about this story is easily David Banks and his EXCELLENT performance as the Cyber-Leader. My top 3 Cybermen are currently:
    1. The Originals (Including the patients)(Tenth Planet, World Enough & Time, The Doctor Falls)
    2. Ashad The Lone Cyberman (The Haunting of Villa Diodati)
    3. The Cyber-Leader (David Banks) (His voice is too good)

  • Doctor Who: Black Orchid

    Doctor Who: Black Orchid

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Love how confused Nyssa and Adric look while the Doctor plays cricket. Can definitely relate.


    It's always nice to just see the TARDIS Team having fun, even if the Doctor is lost for most of the first episode.


    "Then this man is an imposter as well."
    - Lady Cranleigh

    "I don't know what this is all about, but I do know that the Doctor is no imposter."
    - Tegan Jovanka

    What would a murder mystery be without Among Us references?

  • Doctor Who: The Visitation

    Doctor Who: The Visitation

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    They fucking murdered the Sonic Screwdriver!!!


    Love the robot that dresses up as Death. Fashion Icon.

  • Doctor Who: Kinda

    Doctor Who: Kinda

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "An apple a day keeps the, uh… Nevermind actually."
    - The Doctor (5)


    Since this is a rewatch, I decided to watch with updated effects but the only scene where I really noticed much difference was the final fight with Mara.
    After checking the effects comparison, it appears that's because it is the only scene with updated effects.


    Classic Who doesn't have too much scary / creepy / unsettling things in it (at least not by today's standards) but the…

  • Doctor Who: Four to Doomsday

    Doctor Who: Four to Doomsday

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "That's the trouble with women. Mindless, impatient and bossy."
    - Adric

    Why did Adric suddenly become misogynistic!? He was such a great companion up until that!

    "Men."
    - Tegan Jovanka

    I was looking forward to this TARDIS Team but now Adric's gone sexist, Tegan seems to mainly be complaining (as justified as she is) and Nyssa and Tegan don't become a couple until the expanded media!


    The effect used for Bigon taking his face off is not the best.


    I…

  • Doctor Who: Castrovalva

    Doctor Who: Castrovalva

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A little boring honestly but still a bit enjoyable.


    Tegan and Nyssa are good together even if their main scenes together were them trying to carry a box.


    Would've been nice to see a version where the Doctor is traveling with the companions he mistook his team for: Jamie, Vicki and... He didn't call Nyssa anyone else but still.


    Overall, needed more Adric.


    Also, why does the TARDIS have a fucking Cricket Room!?!?

  • K-9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend

    K-9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The intro is basically just Sarah Jane doing every day stuff with the occasional shot of K9. And the Theme is just the word "K9" over and over.


    I haven't seen Season 11 or 13 but as far as I can tell this establishes a fair amount of stuff that gets used in the Sarah Jane Adventures and her Nu Who episodes. The most obvious being that she has K-9 Mark III. But her aunty gets mentioned in an episode or two.


    It's fucking brilliant watching Sarah Jane and K9 beat the shit out of some cultists! 10/10 for that scene alone.

  • Doctor Who: Logopolis

    Doctor Who: Logopolis

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Oh my god it's the fucking Cloister Bell, one of the best sounds to exist!
    This is the first story to introduce them.


    These fucking police "Oh we found some dolls in an abandoned car, let's arrest the next person we see." I know those people were murdered but an average human isn't going to know that!


    Shocking that Flatline stole the TARDIS shrinking from here.


    You know shits bad when the Doctor says "I'm so sorry."


    How has no…

  • Doctor Who: The Keeper of Traken

    Doctor Who: The Keeper of Traken

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "The Keeper said one would come amongst us to help Trakens."
    - Tremas

    "Keeper, we have strangers among us who claim to be known to you."
    - Tremas

    "Disharmony among us consuls now?"
    - Seron

    Among Us references in DW Stories where someone pretends to be the Doctor: 0

    Among Us references in DW Stories with the Master: Yes

  • Doctor Who: Warriors' Gate

    Doctor Who: Warriors' Gate

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "I don't know what these levers do. But it's pointing in your direction."
    - Adric


    Love the setting of this story. The White Void and everything to do with the ruins is great. Especially when we see the past and present of the ruins.


    "Will Romana be all right?"
    - Adric

    "All right? She'll be superb."
    - The Doctor (4)

    Romana leaving the TARDIS feels a bit fast despite the fact that she's been going on about Gallifrey wanting her…

  • Doctor Who: State of Decay

    Doctor Who: State of Decay

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "It's Morbin' Time!"
    - Adric probably


    There's a character named Ivo (That's Eggman(The Villain from Sonic)'s name).


    On 1 hand, It's sad that Adric gets hypnotised in his second story, but on the other hand, this story is the first time we get to see Adric's Iconic "I'm joining the villains" trick that I loved him so much for in Kinda.
