Film Review: Paddington 2 (UK, 2017) guarantees to put a smile on your face

I don’t know how the first Paddington film became as good as it is. Considering that the trailers made it look awful and the late cast changes in regards to who provides the voice of the titular bear, I was actually expecting the worst. But to everyone’s shock, it turned out to be one of the best family films of that year. Or even one of the best films of that year.... Continue Reading

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

Exclusive: British actress Ingrid Oliver talks on comedic and dramatic roles and playing Osgood on Doctor Who

Fans of Doctor Who will recognise Ingrid Oliver as Petronella Osgood, though if you’re a fan of British comedy you may have caught Oliver in a number of other productions over the last decade. Oliver however looks strikingly different from Osgood minus her thick rimmed glasses and lab coat when we catch up with her during Oz Comic Con Melbourne.... 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 11 “Heaven Sent”

Last weeks episode “Face The Raven” saw the departure of long-term companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and the return of the angry and uncompromising Doctor that I’ve missed so much. This weeks episode “Heaven Sent” is set only mere seconds from where we left off last week, the opening sequence detailing that the Doctor has been unwillingly teleported to a mysterious location – and he’s not happy about it....

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
