Doctor Who: Russell T. Davies vs. Steven Moffat, Part One

I haven’t gotten around to writing about Before the Flood yet.  I’m not sure why.  I liked it, but I didn’t know if I had anything interesting to say about it.

But then something interesting occurred to me.  Not about Before the Flood, but about every Doctor Who story that came before it.

Well, not every story.  Just the ones since the series restarted in 2005.  And only the full length episodes, not the specials or minisodes or what not.

And that’s this:  with Under the Lake, we now have an equal number of Doctor Who episodes produced by Steven Moffat as was produced by Russell T. Davies.  That’s right, if we’re only talking about full-length episodes, than the show has had 60 episodes each for both writer / producers.

But which one has done a better job?

The Twelve Doctors Continue reading Doctor Who: Russell T. Davies vs. Steven Moffat, Part One

Fifty Things I’d like to see (or not) for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary

And so today, November 23, is the 49th anniversary of arguably my favorite television show, Doctor Who.  That’s very exciting, but of course the big news is that next year that show will be turning 50.  There’s been a fair amount of hype as we head into the 50th anniversary, but very little details other than that we know there will at least be the last 8 episodes of Series 7 airing sometime early in the year.

So I got to thinking, what do I want to see in Doctor Who’s 50th year?  Then I got to thinking…could I come up with fifty things I wanted to see?  I decided to find out! Continue reading Fifty Things I’d like to see (or not) for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary
