Smile Initial Thoughts

Another week and another episode of Doctor Who, and after hopefully hooking a new audience last week with The Pilot, this week had the task of progressing the story of the Doctor, Bill and Nardole well enough to keep that new audience wanting more.

How I’ll Be Covering Series 10

Series 10 is just around the corner; it’s almost close enough to see (largely thanks to the rather stellar effort of the marketing team this series) and I’m personally very excited. It’s been a hell of a long time since we’ve had a full series of Doctor Who, so I’ve had to think about how I’m going to be reviewing the episodes, especially since we have the upcoming series of Daniel’s Doctor Who Diary coming later this month.

I have however, thought about how I’m going to be covering Doctor Who things over the next twelve weeks. Of course, we will have Big Finish reviews of Doctor Who titles as they’re released, but as well as those, I’m going to be doing an Expectations article on a Friday, as well as an Initial Thoughts (not reviews) on Sunday’s after episodes have aired. This means that in the very far future, when the time comes to review Series 10 as part of Daniel’s Doctor Who Diary, it will be a fully fledged review.

I can’t wait to see you on Friday for The Pilot Expectations
