Doctor Who Season 12 Episode 1 Review: Spyfall

Chris Allcock Jan 1, 2020

It’s No Timey-Wimey to Die as Doctor Who returns with a spy-packed opening episode. Spoilers abound in our Spyfall review.

This Doctor Who review contains spoilers and comes from Den of Geek UK.

Doctor Who Season 12 Episode 1

It’s been a year to the day since Charlotte Ritchie and a Dalek stole a police car, but for the team in charge of the world’s most recognizable blue box, it must have felt like no time at all.

Doctor Who fans are no strangers to the show taking breaks, but 2018’s news - that the Tardis would be absent for twelve long months, despite having only just returned with a brand-new creative crew – meant that we’ve been waiting with a weight of expectations that didn’t exist, say, the year David Tennant went off to do Hamlet. Season 11 of nu-Who had seen its ratings

Doctor Who Season 12: How The Tardis Has Changed

Rob Leane Nov 22, 2019

A few tiny tweaks have been made to the Doctor's trusty Tardis for the upcoming season...

During a visit to Cardiff to chat with the team behind Doctor Who Season 12, Den Of Geek was delighted to walk onto the set of Jodie Whittaker's Tardis. And as a member of the BBC's production team explained, despite the fact that there won't be an all-new Tardis interior this time around, the time-traveling blue box has had a few upgrades since the last time we saw it. We hope you're ready to dive into some properly tiny nerdy details.

As you walk into it, the Tardis looks pretty much exactly the same as it did in Doctor Who Season 11. And before you start to worry, never fear - the custard cream dispenser is still present and correct, powered by a discrete foot-pedal underneath the central console. It's on this console,

‘Ghosts’ Preview – The ‘Horrible Histories’ team are back to chill that funny bone

  • HeyUGuys
The BBC is well known for their gripping dramas but they do give us some rip-roaring comedies too. Coming from the writers and performers behind ‘Yonderland’, ‘Bill’ and ‘Horrible Histories’, the newest series to hit the post-watershed mark, Ghosts promises all the silliness you would expect from this team, tickling the funny bone with momentary chills.

The half-hour six-episode comedy follows a young couple, Alison (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe), a cash-strapped young couple struggling to buy their first home. The couple’s luck changes when a distant relative bequeaths them a sprawling country estate. The catch? The old house is haunted by the ghosts of its former inhabitants. The restless spirits horrified that the new owners plan to turn the peaceful pile into a bustling hotel, make plans to oust the troublesome newcomers. But their bungled efforts have unintended consequences…

It would be hard not to make comparisons

Trailer for BBC’s ‘Ghosts’ unveils a useless haunting

  • HeyUGuys
The BBC has launched the debut trailer for the upcoming sitcom ‘Ghosts’ and there are a few ghosts that haven’t quite got the hang of haunting.

The sitcom is from the lead cast of writer-performers behind the award-winning Horrible Histories and Yonderland, and feature film Bill and will consist of 6 half-hour episodes.

It tells the story of a crumbling country pile of Button Hall which is home to numerous restless spirits who have died there over the centuries – each ghost very much a product of their time, resigned to squabbling with each other for eternity over the most inane of daily gripes. But their lives – or, rather, afterlives – are thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple – Alison and Mike (Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe) – surprisingly inherit the peaceful derelict house and make plans to turn it into a bustling family hotel. As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers from their home,

Doctor Who Kept The Daleks’ Return A Secret With A Hilarious Codename

After a full season without any returning monsters, Whovians the world over were overjoyed when the Daleks made a comeback in Doctor Who‘s New Year’s special “Resolution.” Well, technically one Dalek did, as the tale saw a lone Dalek creature possess a human body in an attempt to make itself a new casing and take over the Earth.

Impressively, it was only revealed that the evil pepper pot was the main villain of the episode when the BBC featured the iconic “Exterminate” soundbite in a trailer. So how did the production team keep the secret? Well, smartly, the Dalek was referred to by a codename in the script. And it was a hilarious one.

Apparently, the codename used for the deadliest monster in the universe was simply Kevin. In a recent interview, guest star Nikesh Patel revealed to Doctor Who Magazine (via RadioTimes.com) that the codename made the script a “confusing read,

Doctor Who New Year’s Special “Resolution” Review

There were two sizeable criticisms of Doctor Who‘s recent eleventh season. First was that there was a serious lack of any classic monsters in its ten episode run, and second was that its finale was a bit of a dud and failed to wrap up the year in a satisfying way. It was up to New Year’s special “Resolution” then to save the day on both of these fronts, seeing as it was revealed to feature the return of the Daleks and its very title promised that it would be the true ending of the Thirteenth Doctor’s first year in the Tardis. But did it resolve to measure up to the hype?

Thankfully, we can say that it did. Showrunner Chris Chibnall provides perhaps his best script of the season for this episode, injecting a certain showmanship and scale into the proceedings – much like his predecessors Russell T. Davies

Fresh Meat series 4: bleak truths and knob gags

facebook

twitter

google+

We chat to the cast of Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong’s university-set comedy drama, Fresh Meat, which returns tonight on Channel 4

Fresh Meat’s characters have been doomed from day one. It’s right there in the title. Ushering in his new seminar group in the first episode, the studiously irreverent Professor Shales calls, “Send in the fresh meat for the grinder”.

It might be the line of a try-hard iconoclast (Shales’ next move is the classic shock-Doc act of binning their essays. Take that, convention), but the words tell a truth never far from Fresh Meat’s cringe comedy. That, as the hapless products of an industrial process that leaves them indebted and scrabbling for ever-distant opportunity, today’s graduates are being shafted.

“There’s compassion for students in the writing,” says Joe Thomas, who plays indie kid undergrad Kingsley. “Particularly in this series,
