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.

GOT S8 P2

… I really want to put something like “at last our watch is over”, but that’s a bit too cringey, so I won’t. Anyway, Game of Thrones has come to an end, and boy, those final two episodes, eh? Some of it I liked, some of it… not so much, but I was constantly entertained, which is the main thing, I guess! Let’s take a closer look so I can stop dancing around potential spoilers!
