Doctor Who S10E12 Review

doctor-who-s10e12-f3ccc28486bcfdf4e4ef1ee3778b6886-fullJuly 2017   Ι   Season 10   Ι   Episode 12   Ι   Rachel Talalay

Following the previous episode, the Doctor, the Master, Missy, Nardole and Cyber-Bill are trying to come up with a plan to prevent the Cybermen from taking children. Missy and the Master has their own plans but Missy wonder if she’s going the right way. Meanwhile, Cyber-Bill is figuring out what it means to be a Cyberman and she doesn’t like it. 

IT CAN’T BE OVER!! This season just came and went before I even had the chance to blink (we don’t have any Weeping Angels here so I’m allowed to do that). I seriously can’t believe it’s over though. I am a massive Doctor Who fan and I’m heartbroken, not just because season 10 is over but also because of this episode. It was very emotional. I really feel like the previous episode was more about the story and this episode was all about farewells. Episode 11 was more eventful and had an interesting story, they mostly talked with each other in episode 12. I also thought the fight would be longer but it was almost like there was no fight against the Cybermen, there were some explosions and that’s it. I did however find the episode interesting and it was a very good episode.

So we already knew that this was the end for Peter Capaldi and I have to say that he has been a fantastic Doctor. I really think the main focus was on him and he really had his moments to shine. He got to deliver his brilliant speeches as well. Bill also got a lot of attention and I really liked that they switched between human Bill and Cyber-Bill. Just so Pearl Mackie also could show her extraordinary talent. Bill’s ending was however a bit too weird for me, I just stared at the screen and could not understand what was happening. When it comes to the Master and Missy I have to say that it was a nice addition and they made the episode a lot more fun. I was a little disappointed over their ending but I can live with it. So is the 12th Doctor my new favorite Doctor? Unfortunately not. I’m still keeping the 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor and the 5th Doctor as my favorites. I have however loved following Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor and I wish him all the best. Now I’m going to watch the old seasons again, just because I don’t want it to end.

Doctor Who S10E10 Review

Bill and the Doctor are not united over what happened to the Roman legion of the ninth and takes the Tardis to Scotland to find out. Upon arrival they go their separate ways to prove their theories right, and they both stumble upon some rather interesting groups of people. Although, what they didn’t expect to find was the door leading to the end of the world. 

The Doctor was really shaming the leader Kar in this episode. I mean, I know she doomed the whole world to extinction but give her some room to breath. Haha no but the Doctor was a tiny bit moodier in this episode, but it was quite understandable. I think both Nardole and Bill got their funny sides going and the whole episode was overall pretty funny and enjoyable. I like seeing romans and other historical groups when they are facing aliens, it kind of just makes it extra hilarious.

The alien monster in this episode was very cool and high tech but I think it got too little screen time. I would have preferred it if we got to see a little more of it, since this monster was the main subject in almost every discussion. I do however liked that the main focus was on the romans and that other group of people. When it comes to the story itself, it was rather dull and they did spend most of the time hiding and chatting. We can all enjoy a good old chat, but when it’s 30 minutes of it, maybe not. As a whole, I did enjoy the episode and it was very funny. Now it’s finally Missy’s time to shine!

Doctor Who S10E09 Review

p0550gpyJune 2017   Ι   Season 10   Ι   Episode 9   Ι   Wayne Yip

Friday the Ice Warrior is serving a group of the British army after being rescued and brought back to Mars. They manage to wake the empress of Mars and she wants a war. The Doctor and Bill is trying to unite the Ice Warriors and the British army but stubborn people are standing in their way. 

Oh this was an episode for me! Ice Warriors are not common in the newer Doctor Who but they were quite a thing in the classic one. I loved all the episodes with the Ice Warriors from the classic Doc and this species is also one of my favorites. It’s very cool to see how the technology had developed, especially if you look at the first Ice Warrior versus the one in this episode. So the “monsters” were great, the evil & kind humans were great, the Doctor was great and Bill was great. Now I’m just missing Nardole. A bit of a shame that he wasn’t in this episode that much, I really like him. Also a bit of a shame that it wasn’t time for Missy to shine.

I would say that the British army were more in focus than the Doctor and Bill, not much though. That was however fine by me since it makes the episodes less monotonous. There were a good amount of action and fighting in this episode as well. All the references to different movies was absolutely brilliant, loved it. Overall I would say that this episode had a nice balance between everything. I’m just glad we’re done with the Monks to be honest. I’m also glad they went back in the archives and brought back the Ice Warriors. I think it was a great episode! I’m also very interested to see which role Missy will take in this season. We will hopefully soon find out!
