Written by Steven Moffat, Neil Gaiman, Matthew Graham, et al. Starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill At the mid-series hiatus, I did a quick run-down of the most recent series of Doctor Who so far (note the new numbering system, Doctornumber-decimal-Doctornumberseries, which I’m finding handier and handier as time goes on).  When it […]

Blightyvision — Doctor Who Series 6: Part 1 (Spoiler-free)

Starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill Written by Steven Moffat et al It’s been a roller-coaster year for Doctor Who so far.  The move to divide the series into two parts left a lot of people wondering if it was for plot reasons, actor convenience, or if it was an opening for the […]

Blightyvision: Christopher and His Kind

Starring Matt Smith, Imogen Poots, and Douglas Booth Written by Kevin Elyot, based on the book by Christopher Isherwood Directed by Geoffrey Sax I am going to make a horrible confession, and one that an Anglophile probably shouldn’t make publicly: I have not seen any of Matt Smith’s work prior to “Doctor Who.”  My “give […]

BBC Releases Autumn/Winter 2010 Preview

I’ve complained in the past — back when I still pulled teeth doing the Watchlist — that the Beeb is terrible about releasing information about their upcoming shows.  One thing they do right well, though, is put together nice trailers when they do feel like announcing their seasonal offerings.
