Crosswords - Talking About What I Read in 2018
So, I managed to read 104 books in 2018. That wasn’t my plan at the beginning of the year I just found myself with time to read. Or I made time to read. You can choose. I basically made sure that when I was travelling anywhere, I had a book with me, which b...

Last Christmas
Let us travel back to Christmas Day 2014. Our presents have been opened, we're stuffed with Turkey and Christmas Pudding and wearing our wilting and slightly torn Christmas cracker hats. It's time for Doctor Who. It's time for Last Christmas . I really enjo...

The Last Jedi
So, I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi on New Years Day. I picked the first performance I could find, which meant I got the screen to myself. And due to a cock-up by the cinema, I didn't have to watch any stupid ads before it started either. It was trailers and...

Reading in 2017
So, the last book I completed in 2017 was Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous With Rama, whilst the first was Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari. One of them I enjoyed more than the other. In between those two books I read a few other boo...

In The Forest of the Night
I suspect how you feel about Frank Cottrell-Boyce's In The Forest of the Night  will be similar to your feelings about  Kill The Moon . Because this is not a science-fiction story, for all its talk of solar flares. This is a fairy tale. The Doctor's TARDIS ...

Flatline
Flatline  is very good. It is probably one of the scarier Doctor Who stories of the New Doctor Who era. Not just that it manages to be fun and continue the thread of Clara's relationship with Danny, her dishonesty and her increasing 'addiction' to the Docto...
