The Pyramid At The End Of The World – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

The Pyramid At The End Of The World picks up where Extremis left off, with the baddie monks with no nose… so how do they smell? Oh… I made that joke last week. Well, if Doctor Who can recycle old ideas… Bill is taken away with the army to find the Doctor as the President, […]

Extremis – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Extremis – or, rather, In extremis – is Latin for “in the farthest reaches” or “at the point of death”. How about a load of confusing rubbish that shows Steven Moffat at his most self-indulgent? It really must be his WORST episode since the Xmas one, The Return of Doctor Mysterio – which was Moffat’s […]

Oxygen – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Oxygen is the one thing lacking when The Doctor, Bill and Nardole arrive on a spaceship… despite the fact they can walk about due to artificial gravity PLUS they can breathe due to an air seal thing from the TARDIS. The premise is: 4 survivors, one distress call, but originally there were 40 crew members, […]

Knock Knock – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 4 – The DVDfever Review

Knock Knock. Who’s there? Well, I was hoping it’d be the writer of a decent episode for a change and, thankfully, it was. NOTE: I will discuss elements of this episode which will be spoilers if you haven’t seen it, so make sure you watch it first. Bill and her students friends are looking for […]

Thin Ice – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Thin Ice is what’s covering the Thames in 1814 London, as there’s monsters underneath, waiting to swipe the population. Taking place within an old-style Victorian market and fayre on the ice, early on, Bill worries about accidentally changing the future, e.g. by stepping on a butterfly and causing her own demise, but The Doctor changes […]

Smile – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

Smile! It’s time another dire episode of Doctor Who! But it’s not all dreadful, because despite Nardole (Matt Lucas) turning up early to bumbles around again for no reason, he was quickly left at home as The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill (Pearl Mackie) headed off on an alleged adventure. Given the choice of going […]

The Pilot – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Pilot is the first new episode of the tenth ‘new Who’ series, and we already know that not only is this Peter Capaldi‘s final one, but also that the new assistant, Bill (Pearl Mackie), will only be in the Tardis for one series, so while I find her massively annoying from the trailers and […]

Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who in the Christmas 2017 episode

Peter Capaldi has announced he’s leaving Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas episode, but this will come as no surprise. Showrunner Steven Moffat, who showed such great promise with episodes like Blink, but he gave us the interminably dull Clara-boyfriend Danny Pink, then severely let us down with many a lacklustre episode, not least in […]

Pearl Mackie – The new Doctor Who companion

Pearl Mackie has been named as the new Doctor Who companion. Until now, I didn’t know a whole heap else about her, other than the fact she appeared in the enjoyable British comedy Svengali, and also an episode of Doctors back in February 2014. I watch Doctors religiously, but the tertiary cast change on an […]

Svengali on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Svengali tells the tale of Dixie, aka Paul Dean (Jonny Owen), who dreams of coming to London and following in the footsteps of the likes of Brian Epstein and Alan McGee to manage a very successful band. Of course, not every band can be massively successful, which you can imagine he’s about to find out. […]
