"Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor" Review

Fifty years ago, a small low-budget TV show started airing on BBC. Featuring a mysterious old man from another planet and his time machine, Doctor Who became an overnight sensation and has become one of the longest-running science fiction franchises. Last weekend, Doctor Who celebrated its 50th anniversary in style. Who would have thought that that small black-and-white show with the wobbly sets and starring the old man who can’t seem to remember his lines become this big – and effectively take over half of the posts of this blog in the process?

To celebrate the 50th year of Doctor Who, Ade and Comicgasm co-editor RJ will sit down and talk about the festivities connected with the anniversary.

WARNING: SPOILERS AND CAPS LOCK AHEAD!

Ade: Before anything else, here’s a reminder: the Philippines needs your help after Typhoon Yolanda left Tacloban and parts of Visayas in shambles, leaving hundreds of thousands of people homeless. I didn’t want to join in the noise by writing a blog post about it and be accused of jumping in the SEO bandwagon, but at the same time I didn’t want Yolanda to be unacknowledged. So there.

RJ: I do believe that this is the first time I’m writing for your blog after the 1:43 fiasco. God knows what kind of trouble we’d end up in this time.

Ade: HEY 1:43! YOUR BAND SUCKS STINKY SWEATY SALTY BALLS. Aaaand that’s the sound of angry fanboys going to my blog. Dude, we have an audience! Let’s do this.

RJ: Let me just say that the 50th Anniversary Special is AMAZING. This will probably be our longest round table review yet, to the point where you (yes, you!) would stop reading half way.

Ade: You’d stop reading halfway and start to wonder what it is you’re doing with your life and possibly make some life-changing decisions and in the process find God.

RJ: We’re going to offend all sorts of people in this post, aren’t we? CAN WE START THE REVIEW YET? Continue reading

Peter Capaldi is the Twelfth Doctor!

I’ve always felt that Matt Smith has one more season in him. The story of the Eleventh Doctor doesn’t feel as fleshed-out as it should be – mainly because of the disjointed feel of the seventh season and the bigger focus on Clara’s “Impossible Girl” storyline. Right now Matt Smith’s Doctor is darker, more manipulative, and no longer fucks around. I wanted to see one more season of that before the eventual regeneration to 12.

But we all know that Matt Smith is regenerating to 12 in the Christmas Special, and that leaves us with just two (arguably epic) episodes for Eleven. Bummer. Don’t get me wrong – I’m excited for the regeneration. But I’m not ready yet.

Anyway, we know the inevitable is coming this Christmas, and here is why I’m excited for Peter Capaldi as the latest incarnation of our space-time travelling Gallifreyan. Continue reading

"Doctor Who: The Snowmen" Review

Hello, everyone. It is time once again for my review of the latest Doctor Who episode, so please indulge me as I bore the shit out of you while I talk about the various intricacies of the Christmas Special. Ok, ready, guys? Here we go.

I wasn’t able to talk about the last two episodes before The Snowmen, mainly because The Power of Three and The Angels Take Manhattan were two of the most heartbreaking  Doctor Who episodes I have seen since Rose Tyler and Donna Noble’s respective exits. I really, really, loved the Ponds, ok? Rory’s my second-favorite companion after Donna, and we all know about my unhealthy obsession with Amy Pond and her ginger sexiness. Which is why I was both dreading and anticipating Clara’s debut as companion in The Snowmen. How the hell is she going to live up to the Ponds? Also, is she going to be another sassy, sexy, companion in the same vein as Amy and River?

Full review, plus spoilers, after this point! Continue reading
