[Meta Note] Some familiarity with Doctor Who is required to understand this review, namely the basic character of the Thirteenth Doctor as portrayed by actress Jodie Whittaker. The thing I love most about Doctor Who novels is the chance they give to explore in depth the characters which aren’t always given enough of a chance […]
There is a common and cliched saying, which goes something along the lines of “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” There have been multiple riffs on this, and I don’t mean to reinvent the wheel here, but I am interested in using a few different lenses that I’ve come across lately to […]
One thing that I’ve always loved about Doctor Who is the way that people unfamiliar with the Doctor and how they operate react to them, and so I loved that The Good Doctor starts off from the perspective of someone utterly bewildered about what is going on.

It’s official — I have a new favorite Doctor. In the lead up to The Woman Who Fell to Earth, I did my best to stay away from spoilers and not look too much into what was going to happen in the episode. Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor is the start to a new era of Doctor […]
