VIE-CAP: World Enough And Time

This episode – the eleventh and penultimate of Series 10 – by rights should have been subtitled, “Or, When A Scenario Isn’t Just A Scenario.” Forget what you saw in the pre-credits sequence. That was a tease. (Spoilers, sweetie.) The real heartbreak here comes after The Doctor decides now is as good a time as […]

VIE-CAP: The Eaters Of Light

It’s present-day in Aberdeen, Scotland, and all wee Judy wants to do is lie down on top of a hill and listen for the music stirring underground. A young boy, presumably her older brother, who has listened to many a supernatural tale upon an elder’s knee; is anything but keen: “You’re going to get me […]

VIE-CAP: The Lie Of The Land

The Doctor pledged to guard her body for 1,000 years after deliberately botching her execution and sending the headsmen scurrying for […]

VIE-CAP: Ottawa ComicCon

In which the blogger falls even harder for actress Michelle Gomez; the blogger’s teenage daughter declares actor Arthur Darvill even hotter in person; and actress Karen Gillan photobombs a lineup of Daleks.   So how was your weekend? Mine was fantastic. I finally found a French Taunter Pop! Vinyl figure to complete my Monty Python […]

San Diego (Hey, That’s Where All The Kids Go)

This is a graphic depicting what is not my current location. I never thought this would bother me, but then again I am experiencing “con drop” post-MontrĂ©al, so I suppose the kicks in the feels that have arisen from intermittently following #SDCC and #SDCC2015 on Twitter over the past 24 hours are hardly surprising. September […]
