‘The Prime Factor’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

At last! I’ve added my brand-new ‘Fifth Doctor’ story to my blog called ‘The Prime Factor’. I’m glad I’ve been able to release this story in November before the Christmas season in December. I wrote this story in the months of June and July 2019. It has been a pretty exciting story to write and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Eaters of Light’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s time for the return of a classic ‘Doctor Who’ writer to the new TV series. Rona Munro, who wrote the last story of the classic series called ‘Survival’ with Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred, returns to write ‘The Eaters of Light’ with Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas. Is this as good as ‘Survival’ though? Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Empress of Mars’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This ‘Doctor Who’ episode features the return of the Ice Warriors with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor. This is one of my favourite episodes from Series 10. The episode is by Mark Gatiss. It’s interesting how it features the Ice Empress and provides quite an intriguing back-story to the Ice Warriors as Martians. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Pyramid at the End of the World’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s time for the second episode of ‘The Monks Trilogy’ in Series 10 of ‘Doctor Who’ called ‘The Pyramid at the End of the World’. I recall being really frustrated with this episode at the time I saw it on TV. My thoughts are more or less the same in my current review for it, though I have gained clarity on the episode. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Extremis’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s the first episode of ‘The Monks Trilogy’ in Series 10 of ‘Doctor Who’. The first episode is called ‘Extremis’ by Steven Moffat. This is what I consider to be a muddled trilogy of episodes in ‘Doctor Who’. The episode has the Doctor, Bill and Nardole discovering the Veritas at the Vatican, Italy where they also meet the alien Monks. Continue reading
