Doctor Who Last Christmas Review

Ah, what to say about the Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Last Christmas”? It had aliens, and the Doctor, and Christmas. It even had Santa, as promised. Oh, and it had Clara and the Doctor, on an adventure after they had parted ways. An adventure that was rumored to be Jenna Coleman’s exit from the show.

Here are a some of the relationships that the season finale dealt with. (Spoilers for Doctor Who finale after the jump.) Continue reading

Five Favorite Moments from Doctor Who, Dark Water

Many people have done discussions or reviews, and so instead I just want to take a moment to discuss a few of my favorite moments from the episode. The episode itself was great, but there were definitely some moments that stood out from the rest. They either really activated the characters or did such a great job of the reveal moments. The tension that these moments created kept us at the edge of our seats!

Spoilers for sure for Doctor Who, Series 8: “Dark Water!”
