Fear Street: 1666, 2021 – ★★★★

A satisfying end to the trilogy of movies, they were very good!

Doctor Who: The Armageddon Factor, 1979 – ★½

Massive anticlimax to the series-long story arc (if you can call it that!). Just bad.

Torchwood: The Five People You Kill in Middlesbrough

A very fun, if not very subtle, parody of what would have happened to the UK during the Coronavirus pandemic had Torchwood been involved!

Doctor Who: The Power of Kroll, 1979 – ★★★

I actually quite enjoyed this one. It’s like Avatar except they are green instead of blue and there’s a giant squid monster.

Doctor Who: Free Speech – ★★★

Doctor Who: Free Speech

I feel like more could have been done with the premise. Also don’t understand how if they have smart phones (mentioned towards the end) they can’t type on their phones to communicate? Even if they don’t actually send the message?

Interesting and clever in some ways, but I feel like it could have been better.

Doctor Who: The Androids of Tara, 1978 – ★★

This review may contain spoilers.

So apparently they have the technology to seemingly instantly create a totally lifelike android replica of anyone, and yet they use it in the most stupid way ever. Also this totally lost me when there just happened to be Romana’s doppelgänger here too and she’s the princess, I mean what are the odds? And why does a story with android duplicates also need human duplicates? It’s a mess!

Tom Baker is funny as always though and for that it gets 2 stars!

Fear Street Part One: 1994, 2021 – ★★★½

Love a good slasher flick, some great 90s nostalgia (that’s when I was a teenager!) and surprisingly gory and sexy for what at first might seem like for kids. 

I’m not that happy with how it ended but let’s see how the trilogy pans out!


Also: yay, lesbians!

Bo Burnham: Make Happy, 2016 – ★★½

Better than What but still pretty basic humour, lots of dick jokes. Really not for me. The last song was very good though, that’s about all I can say for it.

Bo Burnham: What., 2013 – ★½

Watched this after watching (and loving) “Inside”. I cringed through most of it. It was just ugh.

Doctor Who: The Invasion of Time, 1978 – ★

The first episode was intriguing. But then it was all downhill from there. Irritatingly nonsensical and made the TARDIS look like a community centre. I can see where Moffat got the idea of there being a swimming pool in the TARDIS, I just never thought I’d see a Sontaran trip over a deck chair. 

Embarrassing. And Leela deserved better.
