caz963: (Eleven ACC)
Well, I confess I wasn't expecting much, so I wasn't all that disappointed.

Oh, who am I kidding - I was disappointed anyway :(

caz963: (Eight)
The latest Eighth Doctor adventure (and the first since Feb/March) was released yesterday. It wasn't due out until the end of the month, but good ol' Big Finish put it out early, so I nabbed my copy and decided to save it to listen to when I'm in France next week.

Alas - I've never been very good at delayed gratification, and there was a large pile of ironing glowering at me last night, so...

The Silver Turk )
caz963: (Eleven Team Tardis)
I've been away from the computer for a couple of days - the weather has been so bloody good; far too good to waste it sitting inside hunched over a keyboard! But I can't let the weekend pass without some thinky-thoughts on the Doctor Who finale.

There was good and bad - but mostly I'm pretty ambivalent about it. I don't feel quite as let down as I did by The Big Bang, but I suspect that's because my expectations weren't very high to begin with.

Doctor Who? )
caz963: (Doctor Rocks)
I've been looking forward to this one since I heard that James Corden was returning to DW to reprise his role as Craig. I thought The Lodger was one of the best episodes of S5 and I've enjoyed Gareth Roberts' work on both DW and SJA, so I was predisposed to like Closing Time anyway.

And like it I did.

You've redecorated! I don't like it. )
caz963: (Eleven sitting TIA)
I've been AWOL from here for a while and didn't get around to posting my thoughts on The Girl Who Waited )

I said after LKH that I was looking to the four standalone episodes between LKH and the series finale to regenerate my enthusiasm for Doctor Who, and I have to say that the three that have aired so far have been some of the most enjoyable episodes of S6.

The God Complex was creepy and claustrophobic, starting out as one thing and turning into another. Toby Whithouse is forever on my "good" list for penning School Reunion, and here again, he gets to show us something of the Doctor's darker side and to get under his skin, just a little. It's not that we were told anything we didn't already know - I suppose I just wasn't expecting it at this point in the series.

caz963: (River big gun)
Anyone who reads my LJ either regularly or just for telly-related stuff knows (I hope) that I try to offer a considered opinion and to express my views politely.

caz963: (Eight)
I've finished listening to the Big Finish DW audios featuring the Eighth Doctor, Charley and C'Rizz. They were originally produced between January 2001 and late 2007, so I've obviously come to them pretty late in the day. Not that it matters. I've enjoyed listening to them on the whole, even though there were a couple I struggled to get through. But there are more than 25 of them, so I suppose they can't all be belters.

caz963: (DW Ten Donna library)
I've been listening to more Big Finish DW audios over the last couple of months, but I haven't got around to posting my thoughts on them. I've started to 'branch out' and listen to Doctors other than Eight as well although the EDAs have formed the bulk of my listening so far.

caz963: (Much Ado 2)
Hey - that rhymes!

I'm fortunate enough to be going to see Much Ado a few times over the summer, but I went for the first time on Saturday night and had one of the best evenings out that I've had in a long time. Of course that was, in large part due to the delightful company afforded by the lovely [ profile] canterlevi, but I think that David Tennant and Catherine Tate may have had a hand in it, too :P

So, revealed at last, River Song is -

Spoilers! )
caz963: (doctor donna wtf)
This is kind of a difficult review to write because the episode itself wasn't really all that much to write home about, was it? So here are some brief thoughts before I head off into other territory, because I have a rant brewing.

NB - Spoilers for the next episode beneath the cut.

I'm starting to wonder whether I know what the hell to make of this show anymore... )
caz963: (Eleven Team Tardis)
Well. That was an improvement on Fear Her wasn't it?

Trust me... )
caz963: (DW Idris - alive)
Predictably, I’ve got more to say about The Doctor’s Wife. I was so “up” after it finished, and I knew I was missing things out or glossing over things in the post I wrote after the episode aired so I wanted to come back to them and mull over them for a bit.

thinky-thoughts this way )
caz963: (Eleven & Idris)

Hello! )
caz963: (Fringe Olivia back)
I finally managed to watch the S3 finale of Fringe yesterday and... er, well it was pretty timey-wimey and definitely very WTF, especially at the end!

... )
caz963: (DW allons-y)
Amid all the hoo-ha surrounding the advent of S6 of DW on telly, I had a chance to listen to a few more Eighth Doctor audios while I was on Easter hols. As with the ones I've already heard, the last lot I’ve listened to are a mixed bunch, including a couple of blinders, something that should have been awesome (and sadly wasn't) and something I didn't really care for at all.

cut for rambling and spoilers for several EDAs )
caz963: (River TIA)
Initial - jumbled up - thoughts (before I've read anyone else's.)

Spoilers! )
