Over the weekend the ICC Sydney Convention Centre at Darling Harbour played host to Oz Comic Con Sydney.

Exclusive: British actor Samuel Anderson talks the differences between theatre and TV production and working on Doctor Who

It’s not very often that a new supporting actor on Doctor Who manages to make enough of an impression to be voted the best male guest star in the series for that year. But when Samuel Anderson joined the cast as teacher Danny Pink and love interest for Jenna Coleman’s Clara Oswald, he set hearts aflutter and minds astir. But besides his brief travels through time and space, he’s also tread the theatre boards and gives an interesting insight into what he sees are the differences between the production styles. We sat down for a quick chat with Samuel whilst he was here as part of the Oz Comic Con Melbourne lineup.... Continue Reading

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 12 “Hell Bent” (UK, 2015)

After last weeks goosebump-inducing episode “Heaven Sent”, this weeks episode “Hell Bent” had a lot to live up to. It had to deliver a compelling conclusion to the season, solve all this hybrid nonsense, and would finally reintroduce the eagerly awaited Gallifery whose disappearance has been teased for several seasons now. With so much to cover, it was certainly going to be a feat to fit into the mere hour of screen time. And indeed, it seems that there was all too much to cover with the episode, at times, ultimately sacrificed narrative in lieu of non-sensical novelty.... Continue Reading

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 10 “Face The Raven” (UK, 2015)

Clara Oswald’s death is something that has been foreshadowed incessantly throughout this season. We’ve caught glimpses into the Doctor understanding that he will inevitably outlive his best friend; we’ve understood that Clara has become dangerously similar to the Doctor; and in the opening chords of this weeks episode “Face The Raven”, it seems that Clara was almost too happy – something that, as we all know, only serves as a reminder in Doctor Who that something really, really bad is about to happen. And it’s true – happiness doesn’t last long in this universe.... Continue Reading

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 9 “Sleep No More” (UK, 2015)

I think I’ve missed something this entire season; when everyone praised “The Witch’s Familiar” as being one of the best episodes in Doctor Who history, I gave it one star. This week, fans are amassed with disappointment after “Sleep No More” – it seems that I’m the only person in all of time space who loved the hell out of this episode....

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 9 Episode 8 “The Zygon Inversion” (UK, 2015)

“Since when is Doctor Who political?”, says my Tom Baker adoring mother after seeing the credits roll for “The Zygon Inversion”. Bewildered and a little confused as any long-term fan of the show would be, my mum encapsulates a stark change in the landscape of Doctor Who – that it has the power to transcend what science fiction typically is. I welcome this refashioning with open arms, “The Zygon Inversion’ a testament to what happens when the conclusion of a story is just as, if not more, important than establishing the premise. I’m so happy that I can finally say this – Doctor Who is back.... Continue Reading
