‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Hell Bent’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s the season finale of Series 9 and the last episode of the three-episode story arc in ‘Doctor Who’. It’s time for ‘Hell Bent’ and it features the Doctor’s return back to Gallifrey? But was the Doctor’s return to Gallifrey worthwhile? Did Clara really die? Is Ashildr the so-called hybrid? My review details the confusion I have. 😀 Continue reading

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

I’ve read and reviewed the movie novelization of ‘Batman Returns’, the second film from the original ‘Batman’ film series directed by Tim Burton. The novelization is by Craig Shaw Gardner.

Quick DVD Review – ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016)

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

This year, I saw the 2019 remake of ‘The Lion King’ in July. Whilst I don’t consider that to be better than the original cartoon film, I did enjoy it in some measure. Before that movie, the director Jon Favreau directed the 2016 remake of ‘The Jungle Book’. And I’m so pleased to say, I’ve at last seen it! Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Sleep No More’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Here we come to what I consider to be a low-point in Series 9 of ‘Doctor Who’. This is ‘Sleep No More’ by Mark Gatiss. This is an interesting if unusual experiment of a ‘Doctor Who’ episode based on the concept of found footage. This episode doesn’t work for me to my tastes. My review explains why that is.
