This issue takes place between Series 5 and 6 of Doctor Who; however, it works as a great point for new Whovians to jump in.
Set shortly after “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey's End” during the David Tennant specials, this issue sees the Tenth Doctor visiting present-day New York City. While this is near the end of the Tenth Doctor's tenure, it still works as a starting point for those who are new to Doctor Who.
The second episode of Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond had a much darker tone than the previous one, which does not come as too much of a surprise, since it takes place during World War II. Although, the war is not the only source of turmoil in Ian Fleming's life.
Dominic Cooper is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors, so I was pretty excited when I learned that he would be playing Ian Fleming (the creator of James Bond) for the BBC.
The Doctor regenerated thrice in 2013, and, unfortunately, the third time was not as good as the previous two.
You know those comic books that you take a look at the artwork and know instantly that you need to get it without even needing to know what it is about? Blade of the North Wind: Volume 1 was one such book for me.
While writing my article on The Day of the Doctor pre-party put on by BBC America and Nerdist Industries, I quickly realized that if I were to review the 50th anniversary episode itself, I would be unable to do so without spoilers. So, I put out the previous article without the episode critique and left that for the one you are currently reading. This is your last warning, major spoilers ahead.
I recently had the pleasure of going to YouTube Space LA to attend the simulcast pre-show for The Day of the Doctor put on by BBC America and Nerdist Industries. It was the perfect way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the greatest show in all of space and time, Doctor Who. A full-sized TARDIS sat at the entrance to greet cheering fans as they attempted to contain their excitement until the festivities began.
I usually stick to the full episodes when it comes to my reviews for Doctor Who; however, “The Night of the Doctor” has been released, and it starred my Doctor, Paul McGann. The mini-episode is a prequel for the 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor.”
