Doctor Who: Meglos, 1980 – ★½

I can’t believe they had Jacqueline Hill back but instead of casting her as Barbara again and having a wonderful reunion with The Doctor they make her a priestess. It’s like if Billy Piper returned to the show and instead of casting her as Rose she is playing someone different… oh wait, bad example 😁

The story was awful, as were the special effects. Tom Baker was delightful as always though and I’m really warming up to Romana II.

Doctor Who: Shada, 2017 – ★★★½

This story is almost legendary, having never been finished but then been recreated. Shame it’s not Adams’ best work. City of Death was much better.

Doctor Who versus the cock and balls. I actually thought this was well scripted and well acted on the whole! I really liked it.

Doctor Who: City of Death, 1979 – ★★★★½

The best episode of Classic Who yet, and it is a classic! Absolutely brilliant!

Doctor Who: Destiny of the Daleks, 1979 – ★½

This review may contain spoilers.

Oh dear this is terrible - the Daleks are constantly referred to as “robots” and “computers” but they are creatures in tanks! So the whole plot doesn’t make sense. Plus Davros sounds wrong and Romana’s regeneration is insultingly bad.

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: 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.

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.
