'Doctor Who' Christmas Special: Enough Banter To Keep Fans Delighted

12/26/2015 8:55am EST
'Doctor Who' Christmas Special Review: River's Holiday Return
The Doctor Who Christmas Special has become something of a tradition for sci-fi fans as a nice way to close out the holiday. With "The Husbands of River Song," which is Peter Capaldi's second Christmas Special as The Doctor, there's not as much holiday as in years past - but there's enough banter to keep fans delighted.

As if the title wasn't an indication, "The Husbands of River Song" really isn't much of a Christmas story; it's more a story that happens to take place in winter. Nor is it really a Doctor story; it's a River (Alex Kingston) adventure with The Doctor playing companion. Yet ...

'Doctor Who' Season Finale Preview: What Has The Doctor 'Hell Be
After his bone-chilling solo adventure last week, The Doctor wraps up the current season of Doctor Who tonight with "Hell Bent." What is the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) going to do now that he's returned to his home planet of Gallifrey? Especially given the prophecy bombshell he dropped? We have your preview of tonight's finale here.

"Hell Bent" is the third of a three-part story arc that began with "Face the Raven," which saw The Doctor and Clara (Jenna Coleman) face an irreversible tragedy. Since that episode, The Doctor has been on a terrible tear, and now he's back on Gallifrey to c...

Peter Capaldi's Solo 'Doctor Who' Episode Proves Why He Was Such A Brilliant Casting Choice

Peter Capaldi's Solo 'Doctor Who' Adventure Is A Success
This week's Doctor Who was a solo showcase for Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, after last week he said goodbye to Jenna Coleman's Clara Oswald. Although Coleman still had a cameo appearance in "Heaven Sent," this episode was Capaldi's show and it proved why he has been a brilliant casting choice as The Doctor.

Realizing that he's been teleported into a glass chamber inside a mysterious castle, The Doctor spends the episode trying to sort out his whereabouts, dealing with a mysterious creature known as the Veil (played by Jami Reid-Quarrell), and processing what happened to Clara.

As Doctor W...

'Doctor Who' Review: 'The Magician's Apprentice' On The Right Tr
Doctor Who returned to the airwaves on Saturday night, and "The Magician's Apprentice" proved that the long-running sci-fi show still has plenty of life left in it, if a few kinks to work out. With strong performances all around, the episode brought us back to the Twelfth Doctor's world convincingly - but where is he going next?

It begins simply enough. When airplanes are stopped in the sky and the Doctor can't be located to deal with this latest crisis, his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) is recalled by UNIT. It's quickly revealed that the planes have halted because of Missy (Michelle Gom...

'Doctor Who' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Deep Breath' - Peter Ca
Ever since Peter Capaldi was announced as the next Doctor, we've been excited for the new season of Doctor Who. Capaldi made us cry laughing as Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It and just plain made us cry as John Frobisher in Torchwood: Children of Earth. And he's just as brilliant as the Twelfth Doctor.

So how do you introduce a new Doctor? Oh, hey, there's a dinosaur. That's pretty cool. Except it's stomping around Victorian-era London. Thankfully, we have something for that - the TARDIS, which the dinosaur actually coughs up. Familiar faces Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax go down to see ...
