The Doctor Who TARDISblend 61: Cold War
cGt2099   |  

Doctor Who TARDISblend Header 2013

Classic Doctor Who villains, THE ICE WARRIORS, make a triumphant return in Cold War this week, as the 7th Series of modern Doctor Who continues. In the story written by Mark Gatiss and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, the Doctor (Matt Smith) and companion Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman) take a wrong turn in the TARDIS on the way to Las Vegas, and end up materializing on a sinking Soviet Submarine at the height of Cold War tensions in 1983.

While the materialization would ordinarily be an immediate threat to the Russian sailors, our heroes arrive in the middle of a crisis, with equipment damaged on the boat causing it to sink. Professor Grisenko (David Warner), attached to the command of Captain Zhukov (Liam Cunningham) for scientific drilling in the Arctic, has discovered a surviving Ice Warrior, who begins waging bloody war with the occupants of the submarine.

During TARDISblend 61, we celebrate a brilliant return of the fantastic Ice Warriors, their first appearance in 39 years. We also commend the performances by the spectacular guest stars on this episode, and look into the possibilities for the return of these characters, and perhaps more Ice Warriors adventures in the future…

As usual, we make some Classic Who recommendations too… All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

Merry Christmas to you all from us here at GeeksOfDoom.com – and we all know what Christmas means, right? That’s right: a brand new Doctor Who episode!

Series 7 continues with the annual Christmas Special of Doctor Who entitled The Snowmen. Seeking refuge and isolation in Victorian London, and protected by some faithful allies, the Doctor becomes a recluse after losing his previous companions. However, as he broods, a new evil plot is hatched by a new foe with connections to some long-ago adventures the Doctor has experienced.

During TARDISblend 58, we analyze the new Doctor Who, which comes complete with new iconic show titles and theme, and the debut (or is it?) of new companion Clara (Jenna Louise-Coleman). We discuss the new elements giving clues to Steven Moffat‘s overarching plots, as well as several cameo references to Classic Doctor Who in this episode.

Also, we have a look at the performances from some of the special guests in this episode by Richard E. Grant, and Sir Ian McKellen. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

It’s another wait for Doctor Who fans, as the first half of Series 7 concludes and the countdown to the Christmas Special 2012 begins. To close off the first half, we’re joined by James McLean from BackToFrankBlack.com and Kasterborous.com, and also fellow Geek Of Doom, Eric Mitchell aka Jedi Of Doom, as we reflect on the new episodes seen thus far, and speculate on what is to come.

During TARDISblend 57, we discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of Series 7a, and also look forward to our hopes, predictions, and speculations of Series 7b and the Christmas Special. Additionally we talk about our expectations of new companion Clara Oswin played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. John Barrowman‘s Captain Jack Harkness also gets a mention as we discuss whether his character should return to Doctor Who or not.

The first half of Doctor Who Series 7 concludes, and it begins with The Doctor (Matt Smith) with companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) having a picnic in Central Park, New York in 2012. While there, Rory is zapped back to 1938 by one of the Weeping Angels.

The Doctor and Amy discover that their impending adventure is documented in a book, and they travel back to try and find and rescue Rory, only to discover that the Weeping Angels have established a feeding ground in New York City. Meeting up with River Song (Alex Kingston), the heroes find themselves in a fixed time loop problem, which may have tragic consequences for them all…

…or for some of them…

During TARDISblend 56, we discuss Steven Moffat‘s final farewell to the Ponds in The Angels Take Manhattan, and examine some of the more wibbly-wobbly aspects of the episode. We also make mention of some of the cooler Angel scenes in the mid-series finale, and look forward to the next episode being the Christmas special.

Doctor Who Series 7 continues in a story told from the perspective of the Ponds, the Earth has become plagued by the mysterious appearance of black cubes across the planet. The Doctor (Matt Smith) begins an investigation into the cubes, with the assistance of some old friends with UNIT, only to find… nothing!

The cubes offer no clues to their appearance, but the Doctor can’t shake the feeling that they represent a grave danger to humanity…

During TARDISblend 55, we discuss the penultimate Pond story in the Doctor Who universe entitled The Power Of Three, told completely from the perspective of Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill). We also take a look at the guest appearances in this episode, with Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) fulfilling the role of the daughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (played by Nicholas Courtney in the Classic Doctor Who series), and the surprising and fun cameos that showed up as well.

Doctor Who Series 7 continues as the Doctor (Matt Smith), travelling with Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), arrive in 1870 USA, in a remote town called Mercy. The town is a frightened populace, protecting an alien scientist, Doctor Kahler Jex (Adrian Scarborough), from a cybernetic weaponized being known only as The Gunslinger (Andrew Brooke).

As the Doctor investigates the odd situation further, he and his companions learn very quickly that not all is as it seems with the two aliens in the old wild west town, and are putting the population of Mercy in great danger…

During TARDISblend 54, we discuss the clues provided in this episode that may indicate the current season may be being played in a different chronological sequence than previously anticipated. We examine the evidence showing up in the series so far, to highlight more moments justifying our running theory.

Doctor Who Series 7 continues as a mysterious unknown spaceship is heading to Earth in the 24th century, and ISA needs the help of the Doctor (Matt Smith). Enlisting the help of the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill), Queen Nefertiti (Riann Steele), and 19th century English explorer John Riddell (Rupert Graves from Steven Moffat‘s Sherlock), the Doctor also manages to drag Rory Williams’ father Brian (Mark Williams) along.

As they investigate the mysterious craft, they discover a surprise that creates more mystery than it does answers: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

During TARDISblend 53, we examine the new characters and organizations introduced in this episode, as well as the evolution of Amy and Rory as companions as they transition towards their departure. We also discuss the fabulous quality CGI effects used on this episode for the dinosaurs, which was quite spectacular.

It’s finally here! Episode One of Doctor Who Series 7 has hit the screens, and the TARDISblend is here to review the Asylum of the Daleks. The Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) are reunited after being captured by the Parliament of the Daleks. They are under threat from the Dalek Asylum, but fear intervening, deciding instead to forcibly send in “The Predator of the Daleks” aka the Doctor to eliminate the mad Daleks…

During TARDISblend 52, we take a look at the Parliament of the Daleks and the creepy unshelled Prime Minister, and debate the return (of lack thereof) of Classic Dalek Designs in this new premiere episode. We also discuss the major surprise of the episode, introducing a new character earlier than expected, which we’re STILL wondering how the BBC kept a secret until now.

The crossover of themes from Series 6 gets integrated into Asylum of the Daleks, and we examine Steven Moffat‘s approach to the longer overarching storyline across seasons, particularly to the question that should not be asked: “Doctor Who?” Finally, we compare Asylum of the Daleks to the impacts of previous season openers, and provide some Classic Doctor Who recommendations to our listners.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
