In brief: Zoom. BOOM. In depth: Torchwood is back. After an undisclosed period of time after the deaths of Owen and Toshiko, life in Cardiff goes on as, well, normal. That said, I did have to have a quiet chuckle […]
In brief: Boom! Smash! Plot! Smash! Boom! In depth: Firstly, a little tip: Never, ever sit in the front row of the cinema when watching a Transformers movie. That was yours truly last year. And it was awful. You constantly […]
In Brief: It’s lived long, and now it finally prospers. In Detail: It’s been a very, very long time since I’ve watched the popular folk around me gasping as photon torpedoes smash into something. Even longer since I’ve heard the […]

Three more to go.
Letâ€™s get serious people!
To elaborate â€“ this is it folks. Strap yourselves in for this adventure because itâ€™s fun, tongue in cheek and a fast, furious ride. If youâ€™ve read any interviews youâ€™ll know that this is probably what RTD might call his last chance for a â€˜light heartedâ€™ romp in the Whoniverse. If you can call strangers on a London bus being dragged halfway across the universe by a wormhole and then being hunted down by an alien swarm â€˜light heartedâ€™.
But this episode doesnâ€™t really dwell on the scary moments for longer than, well, a few moments. Itâ€™s about crashing throughâ€¦
With the vast number of releases sweeping through the genre at the minute, this DVD could easily forgiving for slipping out under the radar. This has been out in the United States for some time, but since I’m from the […]
Iâ€™ve come to the opinion that Russell T Davies is quite possibly the most evil man known to exist. Oh sure. He writes for a show that enthrals the nations kids but quite simply he is just diabolical.
He deliberately chose a nicely ambiguous title â€“ The Next Doctor.
Absolutely, utterly fantastic.
This is, quite probably, my favourite episode Atlantis to date. It is, for me, Enterprise’s ‘Cogenitor’, or SG-1’s ‘Abyss’: the episode that rises above the average or mediocre content surrounding it, and elevates itself into not only a good episode, but simply one of the strongest.
Decent, yet confusing.
The absence of Tori Higginson (Elizabeth Weir) certainly screwed over the Replicator story line they had set up for her. “Ghost in the Machine” is a valiant attempt to continue that story without her. And, for the most part, it does a good job.
Michelle Morgan, who plays the consciousness of Weir in Fran’s body, does a reasonably good job of imitating the mannerisms and vocal expressions that Higginson brought to Weir’s character. Her performance is strong, and in the quieter scenes with Teyla/Sheppard/Fran I found myself truly believing this was still Weir. That’s an achievement of performance on Morgan’s part.
