Doctor Who

Although I’ve seen or heard every Doctor Who story at some point, I’ve never done the start-to-finish, episode by episode “pilgrimage” that’s the hallmark of a true fan. So, in the 2016 hiatus year I thought I’d take the opportunity to go back, back to the beginning, and review each episode, one by one.

Rather than watching whole stories (and losing interest by episode 3, which is what normally happens), I’ve limited myself to one episode at a time. It’s giving me a new perspective on stories I thought I knew, meaning I notice things I’ve overlooked in the past. After each episode, I write a short review, and post it on the blog.

Below are the links to each of the episode reviews, organised into serials:
