Review: Doctor Who S9, Ep.3 – ‘Under the Lake’

We're due quite a dramatic shift in scenery this week, moving from the radiation-blasted wastelands of Skaro to a significantly less arid environment...

The Tourist’s Guide To The Whoniverse: Skaro

Hello, fellow Whovians! After last week gave us Series 9’s storming opening episode ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’ (find our review here) and all the masses of continuity and references that came with it, one of our intrepid editors suggested the notion of a brief exploration of the lesser-known throwbacks and terms that appear in each story, largely […]

Can this story live up to […]

Super Mario Maker: The Best Of The Best

We’ve all been having a good time with Super Mario Maker, right? Nintendo’s toybox has been providing us with the means to create those Mario levels we always imagined when we got frustrated (an entire level full of nothing but Super Stars and a veritable conga line of Goombas to vent on?

Boss Rush: Pokémon Champions

It’s one of the most unanimous gaming experiences that our audience have had, I reckon. If ever there’s a company that know how to transcend generations with their franchises, it’s Nintendo, and one of the most enduring and well-loved of those franchises is, of course, Pokémon. Since the debut of Red and Blue Version on our shores in 1999, […]

Review: Doctor Who S8, Episode 9: “Flatline”

Writer: Jamie Mathieson. Director: Paul Wilmshurst. Starring: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Joivan Wade. A Doctor-lite episode of Doctor Who comes up fairly rarely, as things go. Officially, there have only in fact been two in the revised series, those being Series 3’s standout episode ‘Blink’ and Series 4’s ‘Turn Left’. When fan-usage of the term comes […]
