Night Terrors: A Review for Doctor Who

Night Terrors: The Doctors and his companions come to the aid of a terrified little boy, whose monsters appear to be real.

I thought I would try a different approach to this review. The ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’, had a lot of spoilers in it. So let’s try not to give too much away in this one.

I didn’t like this episode very much. It reminded me a lot of the Tenth Doctor’s adventure with the girl taken over by aliens but that could just be because it featured a child.

I like the Eleventh Doctor, he’s a blend of an almost manic and childlike personality. There are moments when I just think he’s awesome, but this story let him down. There are strong moments between Amy and Rory, though I’m starting to think this means something is going to happen soon to break them apart. Why do I think this? Because something always goes wrong when everything is going right.

The supporting actors were a bit of a waste and in the end I didn’t really feel any peril. The dolls were a little freaky though.

So my rating for ‘Night Terrors’ is 3/5

I’ve already seen ‘The Girl Who Waited’ but haven’t gotten around to writing a review. I’m rewatching it tonight, so I’ll write a review tonight and post tomorrow.

Let’s Kill Hitler: A Review for Doctor Who

It’s been a long couple of months since we last had the revelation that Amy and Rory’s daughter is actually River Soong. Tonight the story finally continues.
I liked this episode, it isn’t great but it isn’t a weak episode. We are soon introduced to a new character, called Mel, who is a childhood friend of Rory and Amy’s. She’s great and slightly immoral, after all she does steal a red double decked bus.
The story flows brilliantly. Answers are revelled. Unfortunately the cliffhanger is a little same old, it isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Doctor in this kind of predicament. Half way though the story he is poisoned by River, who the character Mel has just regenerated into. This River is not like the character we’ve met before, she has been brainwashed into being an assassin for the people who kidnapped her when she was a baby.
For the next 30 minutes, River’s parents chase her around Berlin, the Doctor tries to find a cure and we find out that River is a war criminal.
A lot happens in this episode, and if you watch carefully you can see beautiful little details. Like the journal the Doctor leaves for her at the hospital, it’s empty and ready to be filled.
That’s the thing about time travel, if you think about it too hard your brain will explode.
So I give ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’ 4/5.

Codename Dib and Dab: Part 1

Once there were two brothers, two brothers who couldn’t be more different from each other, even though they were born minutes apart. As they grew up, their special skills became more apparent. Dab was reflective, and calculated. He could appear weak and harmless, drawing in his attacker before striking mercilessly, an expert fighter.
Dib was the ladies’ man, with the hair thin temper, but he had charisma in spades. But like all good guys they had a nemesis. His name was Jack, and his most recognizable feature? His ears, they were HUGE. They could probably pick up the police scanner.
Every time their paths crossed the tension was thick, you know the saying, you could cut it with a knife, and well this tension was so thick a saw couldn’t even get through it.
Dib and Dab trained together, stalking each other and pouncing off of trees. Chasing each other through a training area specifically created for them. Dab would take the high path, leaping from ledge to ledge. Dib would snake around the training area, keeping low and out of sight.
They trained for the fight they knew would come; it was just a matter of time.

Titles

A title of a book means a lot, it’s one of the most important things about putting together your book or short.
It’s usually the first thing a potential reader will see, and a title works a lot like a hook. Sometimes it might be the only thing a reader will see.
