DW: The Haunting of Villa Diodati Review

DW The Haunting of Villa Diodati

So, the Haunting of Villa Diodati does take place at the same time as a classic Big Finish story and makes it… unable to fit, while at the same time taking ideas from nearby stories as well. No doubt, not denying it. It’s also a really good story, so enjoyable that I don’t mind at all that history has been altered, as it tends to do a lot. So why is the story good? Well, it’s funny you should ask, because I was just about to write a review of it!

DW: Praxeus Review

DW Praxeus

Really behind at the moment thanks to work, but I refuse to let a Doctor Who review go up after the next episode has aired! I’m cutting it close this time, though! Praxeus was one of those in between episodes you get in the more arc heavy series, one that exists in its own little bubble and is perfectly fine, but you won’t really remember it a few weeks after it airs. So let’s review it!

My Top 20 TV Series of the Decade (2010 – 2019)

Decade Top 10 TV 2010s

While I’m one of those people who likes to remind people that there was no “0 AD” and therefore a decade is actually 1-10, I do also understand its far easier to say 1990 is the start of the 90s than to say the 1980s ends with 1990, so with that being said: Here are my picks for Top 20 TV Series of the 2010s! Hooray! A mix of genuine praise along with other things like nostalgia and influence, this list is, once again, just my opinion and therefore there are undoubtedly many, MANY shows I never watched that are therefore not on this list. Let’s begin, shall we?

DW: Terror of the Vervoids Standalone Edition Review

DW Terror of the Vervoids

My idea of reviewing a story from every season as its released on Blu-ray immediately ran into a problem thanks to the release of Season 23, a season that’s actually one long story, albeit a story that is clearly segmented into four parts. Rather than review the whole Trial of a Time Lord (which I didn’t have time to do due to a certain six film, six game marathon) I was going to just review one part, but that didn’t seem right either. Thankfully, on the Blu-ray, is a special “Standalone Edition” of one of the stories, with all the Trial stuff cut out, so I’ve decided to review that, and then later do an additional paragraph or two when I reach this story during a review of Trial proper. With all that said, how is Terror of the Vervoids when all the Trial stuff is removed? Let’s find out!

Agents of SHIELD – Season 6 Overall Review

AoShield S6

Agents of SHIELD Season 6 was sort of not meant to happen. The team wrapped up the whole show at the end of Season 5 and wrote off the central character of Phil Coulson. Suddenly they find themselves renewed for two more seasons (though length-wise it’s one season split in half…) and this is what they come up with: Evil Phil Coulson lookalike, ignore the fact that this is supposed to be happening in the MCU, and more space stuff! Does this approach work? Well…
