Doctor Who: Eve of the Daleks Review

Well, it’s a Groundhog day episode… again. Well, to be fair, Doctor Who on TV hasn’t really done them but so many other shows I’ve watched or even Who on Audio has used the concept in recent years that it’s a bit old hat to me now. That being said, is the episode good regardless? It’s actually perfectly fine, though not without a few niggling bits. Let’s take a look!

My Top 10 Games of 2021

Another year, another Top 10 Games list that only JUST made it to 10. Well, actually if I’m honest Number 10 is a bit of a cop out I put in because “Top 9” just sounds stupid. Still, given I’ve played a lot of older games this year it’s no surprise that I nearly fell short… Anyway, with that out of the way (and another reminder that I’m not a professional outlet and therefore if a game you think should be best isn’t on here it’s more likely that I just haven’t played it yet, if ever, than I think it wasn’t worthy) let’s take a look!

My Top 10 Doctor Who Stories of 2021

It’s time to rank my favourite ten Doctor Who stories released this year. We actually got another full-ish series on TV and although its counted as one story titled “Flux” I decided to still break it up into its individual episodes… not that it helped it much, to be frank. Still, with once again no end of Big Finish audio dramas to listen to, let’s see what made the Top 10!

My Top 10 TV Series/Seasons of 2021

Well time flies when you’re having… a pretty awful year. Still, plenty on the telly! Yes 2021 was a bad year for my family but that doesn’t impact what was a good year for me outside of reality and on my TV screen. Admittedly if you’re not into Marvel or Star Wars this list would look a hell of a lot different, so I will mention that I’m not in any way being paid by Disney. Let’s face it, I don’t get the kind of views that would make that worth wile. So, let’s take a look at my Top 10 TV Series/Seasons of 2021!

The Diary of River Song: Series 2 – World Enough & Time and The Eye of the Storm Review

The second half of River Song’s second series is far more inconsistent than the first, with the first story just featuring River and Sixth Doctor standing out in particular for being … very oddly written, to put it politely, not to mention now sharing a title with a “proper” TV story. Can the first story to feature River and two different Doctors save it and end the set on a high note? Let’s find out!

Arcane: League of Legends – Season 1 Review

It took a while to convince me to watch this series as I have had zero interest in the game the show is based on, but the clips I saw were extremely impressive so once I saw a few people say no knowledge of the game was necessary to watch it I gave it a shot, and those people were right! It’s a truly stunning series visually and the story has lots of twists, believable characters and really mature storytelling, the good kind of mature storytelling, not the over-the-top swearing and nudity kind (I’m looking at you, Live Action Cowboy Bebop!) Let’s take a look!

The Diary of River Song: Series 2 – The Unknown & Five Twenty-Nine Review

Time to fill in that gap I created long ago by covering the first DORS series then jumping straight to the then-newly-released Series 4. Unlike the previous series and the next two, Series 2 has River meet two Doctors in the same set, though she meets them both in their own story and then both of them at once! I particularly like how River and the Seventh Doctor interact, so it’s a good thing he’s up first… Let’s take a look!

Guardians of the Galaxy (PS4) Review

After sadly steering clear of the Avengers game due to, well, everything I was sceptical when this was announced. Thankfully the reviews made sure to point out that it was a single player story driven experience free of all the daily challenges and micro-transactions of its bigger brother, and soon it was on sale at £38.99 so I snapped it up, and I’m glad I did. It’s a fun game but a great story, one that obviously takes most of its cues from the film series but does add in a few more Marvel comic characters and locations into the mix as well. Let’s take a look!

Hawkeye – Season 1 Review

Twas the morning before Christmas and… I thought I’d upload the review of the just-finished Hawkeye series before the holidays, given its so heavily tied to it. A series based solely on Hawkeye may not have been the most obvious idea to pick but as per usual in the MCU they knew what they were doing as it was a real fun series to follow, with newly minted hero Kate Bishop being well handled and a return I have been quietly hoping for finally becoming reality. Let’s take a look!

Doctor Who: Nightmare of Eden Review

Another random period of time, another Doctor Who blu-ray boxset to review a story from! Yes Season 17 has been released just in time for Christmas and once again I went with the story I haven’t watched in the longest and this time its sadly because it’s not very good… like at all really. Still, I’ll review all Who TV stories eventually so I may as well get it done now! And if that isn’t a glowing reason to click to read more, I don’t know what is…
