The Return of Doctor Mysterio – Doctor Who: Christmas Episode 2016 – The DVDfever Review

The Return of Doctor Mysterio presented me with a dilemma since there were no previews available for this episode, despite there having been so for last year’s Christmas special, so I figured either this one was beyond terrible (always a possibility with a Christmas episode), or there was something so life-changing within that the BBC […]

Hell Bent – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 12 – The DVDfever Review

Hell Bent began with The Doctor entering a ’60 diner, with a cover of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now playing on the jukebox, and Clara seemingly behind the counter. This made me think, “Oh come on, bringing Clara in a lot, after she died, is just taking the proverbial!” I was expecting her to return […]

Heaven Sent – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

Heaven Sent was, if nothing else, a visual and aural treat and something to be watched on a very big screen. But as a story, it was so-so nonsense to watch the clock to. It really didn’t need to last an extended 55 minutes. The TARDIS-less Doctor found himself in the middle of nowhere with […]

The Zygon Inversion – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 8 – The DVDfever Review

The Zygon Inversion is one possibility out of many which might or might not come about in an episode which tied itself in knots more than a few times. Clara’s world is all upside down. She’s hearing conflicting messages coming out of her television set whilst running about in her pyjama bottoms and a vest. […]

The Zygon Invasion – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

The Zygon Invasion saw the Zygons… er… invade, returning after 2013’s 50th anniversary episode, The Day Of The Doctor, and forty years after their first appearance in 1975’s Terror of the Zygons. “Once upon a time, there were 3 Doctors… 2 Osgoods… One peace treaty”. Well, I’d forgotten about there being two Osgoods, so at […]

The Witch’s Familiar – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

The Witch’s Familiar is the second episode in Series 9, and I was so hoping for a return to form, of sorts, after the disappointment of the much-hyped series opener, The Magician’s Apprentice. Did it succeed? Erm…. Well of course, Missy and Clara weren’t dead after all, but were stuck on Skaro just outside of […]

The Magician’s Apprentice – Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Magician’s Apprentice is the first episode in Series 9 (if you’re only counting new series since 2005) and apparently the preview reviews had said it was amazing. Well, all the mainstream reviewers of the world appeared to collaborate on stating Skyfall was amazing, when in fact, it was even worse than Quantum of Solace. […]

Death In Heaven – Doctor Who: Series 8 Episode 12 – The DVDfever Review

Death In Heaven starts with Clara outsmarting a Cyberman, by trying some psychology that only a human could be perplexed by, and somehow this confuses the metal muppet, and then we’re all confused when she says she’s not Clara, but she’s The Doctor! Oh, come on! But just as Missy thinks she’s got the world […]

Dark Water – Doctor Who: Series 8 Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

Dark Water was prefaced with the irony of one of the BBC’s continuity announcers, from Red Bee Media, stating that everyone should shut up(!) It also filled me with dread when the director was revealed as Rachel Talalay, director of the worst of the Freddy Krueger films, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. Anyhoo, then the […]

Mummy on the Orient Express – Doctor Who: Series 8 Episode 8 – The DVDfever Review

Mummy on the Orient Express puts us on a recreation of said train – except slightly bigger, where the rails are hyperspace ribbons, and it’s in space – and Clara immediately says “It’s a good one to end on”. So, is this her last ever episode? Frank Skinner plays Perkins, an initially mysterious Chief Engineer […]
