Two years! Woo-woo! Thanks for keeping with me. It’s been another hell of a year, and although Life Events have meant that I wasn’t able to review quite as much as I would have liked, you’ve stuck with me, and … Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who, ‘A Town Called Mercy’

OK, when Doctor Who wins its obligatory Hugo next year, I vote we give it to this episode. I thought that was stonking. That said, I can see my Twitter feed is already a flutter with voices of dissent. I … Continue reading
