Doctor Who: The Five Doctors, 1983 – ★★★½

The cameos were wonderful and some of them unexpected. The Doctors together was great, love the bickering, and now I see where the inspiration for the 50th anniversary came from. 

This could have been 5 stars if the plot was any good and if the resolution to the story wasn’t rubbish!

Squid Game, 2021 – ★★★½

This review may contain spoilers.

I really liked the first half. My kind of show, and it was very intriguing to see where it would all go. 

Unfortunately the last few episodes were a bit of a disappointment, and there were characters who ultimately didn’t mean anything at all. 

Nice plot twist at the end though…

Boring story, too much being locked up, and all the TARDIS team are bickering all the time, including The Doctor who frankly should know how to behave!

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: 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.
