Robot Of Sherwood_Poster

They meet at last! This island’s greatest hero and defender of the innocent come face to face with Robin Wood! The only trouble is, according to the Doctor, Robin Wood can’t be real. In a sun-dappled Sherwood Forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars. But with all of Nottingham at stake (and possibly Derby), there’s no time for the two adventurers to get into the fight about who is real and who isn’t – which is probably why they do very little else! (Steven Moffat)

Sci-fi adventure, starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Tom Riley, Roger Ashton- Griffiths and Ben Miller.

After last week scary episode with Daleks, Mark Gatiss’s witty story made me laugh, which is nice as I was missing Matt Smith’s funny side of the Time Lord. It was a pleasure to watch great actors having fun at playing legendary parts and Ben Miller is really good at being bad ! This episode will be a classic one for me …

Doctor Who – Into The Dalek


A Dalek fleet surrounds a lone rebel ship, and the Time Lord is the only person who can help the crew, but needs Clara by his side as he once again faces his arch-enemies. The Doctor is confronted with a decision that could change the Daleks for ever, being forced to examine his conscience as he tries to find the answer to the question “Am I a good man? “

Sci-fi adventure, starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Zawe Ashton, Michael Smiley, Samuel Anderson, Laura dos Santos and Michelle Gomez.

Three weeks after the new Doctor’s first adventure we get a classic story with his eternal foe. We meet with a new character, Danny Pink, who I guess will get more importance in future episodes and develop Clara’s romantic side – hoping already she won’t get heartbroken. I didn’t imagine to see Missy and her heaven that soon after our first meeting with her. I gather her relationship with the Doctor will be the main storyline of this series – as she calls herself the Time Lord’s girlfriend, would it mean that Alex Kingston as River Song won’t be back ever ? Could she be the same character ?


Doctor Who – Deep Breath

The last time we saw him, the brand-new Doctor was clinging to the Tardis controls, asking “Do you know how to fly this thing?” But what happened next?

Those famous engines are roaring in the sky. The madman in the box has never looked madder, and Clara Oswald has never been so scared. The time of Capaldi is upon us!

In late-1890s London, swashbuckling detectives Vastra, Jenny and Strax are summoned to the banks of the Thames for a big surprise, and then an even bigger one. A new Doctor is in town, with mayhem in his wake. As Clara struggles to recognise the man she thought she knew so well, killers stalk the capital. A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried spaceship lead the Doctor into a confrontation with a long-forgotten foe… but how far is this new man ready to go to protect his friends? (Steven Moffat)

Sci-fi adventure, starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Neve McIntosh, Dan Starkey, Catrin Stewart, Peter Ferdinando, Paul Hickey, Michelle Gomez and Matt Smith.

After an eight-month wait, the Doctor is back in an intelligent story written by Moffat. I had the pleasure of having already watched it twice to savour it. Some people found it slow, but it’s set in Victorian London and the narrative rhythm seems good to me for this period. I was happy to meet again Vastra, Jenny and Strax as they help Clara to deal with the Doctor’s new face. Matt Smith’s cameo was not really essential to the story but it was a delight to see him again as he will be so missed … Peter Capaldi gave us a brilliant beginning and I’m looking forward to watching him dealing with the Daleks in next week’s episode.

This mini series was a complete shock to me as soon as I watched the first episode – I just loved it right away till the very end. The actors are excellent, the story is original and the choice of songs is perfect all along the storyline.
