This is ‘Last Christmas’ by Steven Moffat and it stars Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, Jenna Coleman as Clara and Nick Frost as Santa Claus. Find out what happens in this mind-boggling episode!

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Kill The Moon’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

We now come to what I consider to be my least favourite episode of Series 8 of ‘Doctor Who’, despite the good performances by Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman as their characters. This is ‘Kill The Moon’ by Peter Harness and it turns out the Earth’s moon happens to be…an egg with an alien creature inside. (about to do a facepalm, but doesn’t bother) Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Listen’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is a ‘Doctor Who’ episode that has some praise to it, but it’s not one that works well for me. In the episode, the Doctor enlists Clara to help solve a mystery of a fear he has about someone underneath someone’s bed. The episode also explores Clara and Danny’s relationship and how they eventually become a romantic couple. Continue reading
