‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The God Complex’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s time for a ‘Doctor Who’ episode that I saw at a convention in Swansea, September 2011. This episode features the Doctor, Amy and Rory trapped in a labyrinth of a hotel with a Minotaur chasing after them. And if you’re wondering if the Minotaur is a relation of the Nimon, the answer is yes it is! 😀 Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Girl Who Waited’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is a ‘Doctor Who’ episode that’s pretty complicated when you watch it casually on the TV. It features two Amys, including a young Amy and an older Amy who had to wait for years for the Doctor and Rory to find her. Despite the story’s complexity, it does have some very emotional moments. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Night Terror’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This ‘Doctor Who’ episode by Mark Gatiss features the Doctor making a ‘house call’ to a terrified eight-year-old boy. Amy and Rory come along for the ride too and Peg Dolls come to life. This episode also features Daniel Mays who would go on to play Private Walker in the ‘Dad’s Army’ 2016 movie. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is the mid-season opener in Series 6 of ‘Doctor Who’. In this episode, the Doctor, Amy and Rory get to meet River Song…before she became River Song. Sounds weird, I know. And despite this episode being called ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’, it barely features him. I found this disappointing when I saw the episode. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘A Good Man Goes To War’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

We’ve come now to the end of the first half of Series 6. There was a break in-between Part 1 and Part 2 of Series 6. ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ is the mid-season finale and it features the true identity of River Song. Dare I say it, I wasn’t particularly happy with how River Song was revealed in the episode. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Rebel Flesh’/’The Almost People’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is the last two-part story in the Matt Smith TV era of ‘Doctor Who’. In this story, the Doctor, Amy and Rory come across the Gangers and an issue of identity crisis occurs. This story is by Matthew Graham who previously wrote ‘Fear Her’ in Series 2. The story closes on a pretty shocking cliff-hanger. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Doctor’s Wife’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

In this ‘Doctor Who’ episode, Matt Smith’s Doctor meets the TARDIS in person…and she’s a woman called Idris. Yeah! This is the first ‘Doctor Who’ episode to be penned by Neil Gaiman for the TV series. This is a fan-pleasing episode in Series 6 of ‘Doctor Who’ that I’ve got to admit I enjoyed watching on the TV. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Curse of the Black Spot’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is a ‘Doctor Who’ episode about pirates that could’ve easily ended up being ‘Treasure Island’ with aliens. But it’s not, it’s ‘The Curse of the Black Spot’ instead. This episode features Matt Smith’s Doctor, Amy and Rory meeting Hugh Bonnerville as pirate Captain Avery whose crew gets attacked by a female siren. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Impossible Astronaut’/’Day of the Moon’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is where it begins to go downhill for me in the new series of ‘Doctor Who’. This is the first story of Series 6, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor. It is a two-part story; features the Doctor with Amy, Rory and River Song and it also features the Silence who are monsters that edit themselves out of your memory.

It features special guest stars Michael Gambon and Katherine Jenkins in it. It also has Amy in a police woman’s uniform; Rory in a Roman Centurion’s outfit and a giant shark! 😀
