Doctor Who: the real monsters of series 10

16 May 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor May 17, 2017

Oxygen and Thin Ice show that the monsters aren’t what’s truly scary in Doctor Who series 10…

Warning: contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 10 episodes 1-5.

See related  Was season 4 Arrested Development's best yet?

Sci-fi is often a testing ground for our fears. We take something that scares us, dress it up in a tentacled bug suit, and write a comforting story about how we defeated it. (Sometimes we write stories about how it defeated us, but those don’t tend to sell as well.)

From the very start of the genre, writers have shaped monsters from the stuff of their anxiety—hubristic scientific advance or disease or enemies from this war or that—and designed scenarios in which, through pluck, luck and brains, we send them packing or squash them flat. Nuclear war, AIDS, terrorism? Bug suit. Story. Defeat.

Like any good sci-fi show, »

Doctor Who series 10 episode 5 is Oxygen - and with lots of spoilers, here's our review...

It started with a Star Trek line. It ended with a hell of a cliffhanger. It left us hoping that Chris Chibnall has already signed up writer Jamie Mathieson – returning to Doctor Who writing following the likes of Flatline and Mummy On The Orient Express - for series 11.

Simon Brew May 11, 2017

Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas all head out into space in Doctor Who series 10's latest adventure. Here's our Oxygen review...

10.5 Oxygen

Ah, now here’s that episode of Doctor Who series 10 with scary monsters that you were waiting for.

Cooked up in the brain of Jamie Mathieson – back after Mummy On The Orient Express, Flatline and The Girl Who Died - it’s also the first story in the run that brings Matt Lucas’ Nardole properly along for the ride, and lets us spend a bit of quality time with him. Scary monsters? Nardole? That’s two things many fans were asking for in one 45 minute episode.

An episode that just happens to be terrific.

The set up on the surface seems your standard Doctor Who base under siege, but there’s a good deal more to it. This time, the Doctor, Bill and »

Prozac Nation: a film breaking down a mental health boundary

10 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chloe Catchpole May 11, 2017

Not many may have seen the Christina Ricci-headlined film adaptation of Prozac Nation. But it's a film with a real power to it.

One of the most damaging stigmas surrounding mental health is shame. The personal pressure to maintain a ‘normal’ façade is all consuming and perpetually draining. It is an onerous full time job shrouded in secrecy.

‘Doctor Who 10×04: Knock Knock’ Review

8 May 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ever since Blink, there has been an anticipation around creepy episodes of Doctor Who, that they will deliver the same creepiness. While some have come close, not many have managed to reach the same impressive quality of Blink. Knock Knock though promised something different, and that was David Suchet.

In Knock Knock we are back to modern-day, and Bill (Pearl Mackie) is moving into a new house with friends. Too good to be true, the house seems to be the perfect accommodation for the students, but with The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) on edge, and a creepy Landlord (David Suchet) hanging around, it’s not long before things start to get creepy.

There is a Gothic creepiness to Knock Knock, right down to creaky floorboards of the old house which of course is a hint as to what is to come. David Suchet’s character is an interesting one, and the »

10.4 Knock Knock

“Do you like Little Mix?”

There’s a bit towards the end of the Sylvester McCoy Doctor Who story, The Curse Of Fenric, that always moves me. I don’t want to spoil the exact nature of it, not least because it’s a moment that hits you all the harder if you don’t see it coming. Just that it involves Ace, played by Sophie Aldred, and it really adds something special and incredibly human to the story.

I bring it up because I love the last third of Knock Knock, »

Doctor Who series 10 strikes gold with Knock Knock - and there were some interesting references in it, too...

This article contains lots of spoilers for Doctor Who.

See related  Power Rangers, boob armour, and impractical costumes

Knock, Knock is a real treat - a spooky, atmospheric tale with an emotional core and some brilliant guest performances. And in a sense it’s a real treat for this writer too, as it’s one of those Doctor Who episodes that’s so fresh and unlike anything the series has done before in its 54-year history (intentionally or otherwise) that this article is significantly shorter than usual; we hope that’s okay. But as ever, if you think you’ve spotted something we’ve missed, please do leave it in the comments below...

Alien: Covenant review

Ridley Scott returns with another Alien prequel to follow 2012’s Prometheus. Here’s our spoiler-free review of Alien: Covenant...

Please note: this review contains a light spoiler, something that's been revealed already in the film's promotion. But just flagging it here in case you've managed to avoid everything so far.

Prometheus was a lot of things, but one of the things it seldom felt like was an Alien movie. In some respects, this was a positive; rather than offer a straight retread of his 1979 hit, director Ridley Scott went off in another direction - broadening out the Alien universe with tales of humanity’s origins and ancient gods on »

Ryan Gosling & Harrison Ford appear in stunning new posters for Blade Runner 2049

4 May 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

We’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe – including these brand new (and quite beautiful) posters for the long-gestating sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which you can view in all their glory below!

After almost 34 years, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi film has got a follow-up that sees acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival) return to the world of replicants in 2049 and has Harrison Ford (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) reprise his role as former Replicant hunter Rick Deckard. Will we get definitive proof as to whether Deckard is indeed a Replicant? Scott always maintained that he was but we still don’t know 100%.

The new film is led by Academy Award Nominee Ryan Gosling (La La Land, The Nice Guys) as our new Blade Runner, named K, who is the new hunter. However, on his mission, he uncovers a secret that could send the current society into chaos – and to Deckard. »

Doctor Who series 10: Knock Knock spoiler-free review

3 May 2017 9:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 4, 2017

Doctor Who series 10 moves on to Knock Knock at the weekend.

10.4 Knock Knock

My favourite of the run so far, this one. I'll get that said right at the start.

Four weeks into series 10 of Doctor Who, the show’s confident enough that we know Pearl Mackie’s Bill quite well, and that it can get on with telling the kind of story that can sit in the middle of a series, without the need for too much explaining. Don’t take that as a slight, thought. Mike Bartlett’s first Doctor Who story, Knock Knock, is a strong lesson in zeroing on a small number of ideas, and really making them count. It assumes that we know the basics by now, and doesn’t need to layer in long-running threads. It’s got a story to tell instead, and boy, it tells it well.

3.4 Sabrosito

In one of the most chilling scenes in television history, Gustavo Fring, riding high on his ultimate victory over the cartel who tormented him and murdered his best friend/possible lover, dragged nemesis Walter White out to the desert and threatened to kill his wife, his son and his infant daughter. Walter, at the height of his hubris and nearing the depths of his moral decay, was truly cowed for the first time, backed into a corner and close to defeat, and it was hard as an audience not to feel the same way.

New outfits, modes and more - new details have emerged of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild's forthcoming Dlc...

We've fought Guardians. We've taken pictures of foxes. We've spent ages cooking up dinners and elixirs. If you're like us, you'll probably have sunk dozens of hours into The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild already, and still not sampled everthing the fantasy world has tucked away in its many corners.

Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 3 Review: Thin Ice

29 April 2017 11:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

With a history as long and complex as Doctor Who has, each episode can become something of a trial for writers: acknowledging past adventures while simultaneously crafting a new and intriguing story.

Unfortunately, Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 3 really strayed too far into whole plot references to be altogether enjoyable for its own sake.

"Thin Ice" featured the Doctor and Bill visiting the Frost Fair in 1814 and discovering that there was an enormous creature under the ice, being fed people in order to produce fuel for the engines of London.

If this premise sounds vaguely familiar, it should.

In Doctor Who Season 5 Episode 2, "The Beast Below," the Doctor and Amy visited Starship UK and discovered that the "ship" was actually built on the back of a massive spacefaring creature which was being fed people...

And later in this episode, the Doctor asked Bill to make the choice for what to do about the unfortunate creature, »

New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Reportedly Set To Screen Before Alien: Covenant; Ryan Gosling’s Replicant Hunter Headlines New Pic

26 April 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between 1979 and ’82, the back-to-back release of Alien and Blade Runner helped cement Ridley Scott’s status as one of the very best sci-fi filmmakers working in the industry, and that legacy continues to burn brightly even to this day.

Case in point: 2017 not only heralds the arrival of Alien: Covenant, Scott’s prequel-sequel that takes the fundamental story strands of Prometheus and steeps them in an acidic pool of old-school horror, but there’s also Blade Runner 2049 to consider. The latter isn’t actually directed by Ridley Scott; in his place, Arrival and soon-to-be Dune director Denis Villeneuve has taken control of the sequel 30 years in the making. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that Ridley Scott doesn’t have a vested interest in 2049 – he is an executive producer on the follow-up, after all.

And so, when quizzed on Blade Runner 2049 during his recent interview with the Associated Press »

The Tool This Comedian Uses to Bring People Together

24 March 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Writing good comedy is hard. Beyond grappling with stage fright and memorizing your material, there's an entirely new challenge built around your audience. How well do you know them? Will you be able to make them laugh? On Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, New York-based actor and comedian Jordan Carlos talks about how he uses comedy to bring people together. He spends a lot of time prepping - sometimes a minute of comedy can take him days and weeks to complete - and sticks with benign topics. "If you talk about the most basic things that are universal, then we can have a great hour together," he explains to Rachel. "What I try to do is give people an escape, so I'll be like, 'let's talk about animals.'" What exactly does he say about animals? It walks the line, so you'll have to »

How This 1 Olympian Is Learning to Stay Motivated

It might seem easy for up-and-coming athletes to stay focused when there's so much ahead of them to achieve . . . so many contests, so many medals. But for one professional figure skater, figuring out how to remain focused after winning wasn't as easy as she thought. In a scene from Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, Gold medalist figure skater Meryl Davis opens up about what happened after she and her partner won their medal in ice dance at the Sochi Olympics. "After [my partner and I] came back from Sochi, we came back to life in Michigan and felt as though our lives were different," she begins. "I didn't have that same goal when I got up in the morning. I bought myself this butterfly necklace to symbolize for myself that it was Ok to spread my wings and it was Ok to grow." Her butterfly necklace now serves »
