The Flash 2×08 – Legends of Today – Arrow 4×08 – Legends of Yesterday

flasharrow1With titles like these, it’s no great surprise that the now-traditional mid-season crossover story is being used to launch the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow series. What is perhaps more surprising, is that whilst it feels more like the sort of 1970s Giant crossover story that used to appear in the summer before comics invented ‘Events’, this two-parter feels like it’s working within the ongoing plots of the respective shows, rather than taking a step away for the duration.

The Sigmund Freud Files

The Sigmund Freud Files

It may be hard to believe sometimes, but there was a time when there were people even more divisive than Steven Moffat – and one of the most divisive in the past century has been Sigmund Freud.The oft-quoted “father of psychoanalysis”, the frequent focus on sexual history in his theories have fallen out of favour (though they give good joke material) but many aspects of the methodology of analysis and therapy remain.

Now, The Sigmund Freud Files gives a new aspect to the Professor – how would he have dealt with personal involvement in cases of crime? Big Finish bring us Bastei’s new English-language adaptations of the successful German series from 2011 – but do they stack up or end up as a Freudian slip?

Lego Dimensions – Doctor Who Level Pack Review

Lego Dimensions

It was exciting news when Doctor Who Lego was announced a while back, and even more exciting when it was confirmed the Doctor would be in the new Lego Dimensions game.  And it’s not just a token nod: what we have here is a full level pack with a lot of content, all very faithful to the show and imbued with its charm and wit. From the Legofied title sequence you can tell this game is going to be fun. The titles are a nicely translated version of the 12th Doctor’s, but are jam packed with Dr Who themed lego hi-jinx in the background.lego-dimensions-will-feature-peter-capaldi-as-doctor-who-daleks-and-cybermen-included-486455-2

The Doctor arrives in the Lego Dimension

We’ll be reviewing the Doctor’s Lego Dimension pack shortly but needless to say it’s as fun as you would expect a Lego Doctor Who cross over would be!  Until then enjoy 12’s lighthearted arrival in the Lego world (should offset tonight’s more serious episode).

Gone but not forgotten, bonus Clara content from the BBC!

The BBC may have just ripped your heart out through your tear ducts (probably to prepare you for oncoming Cyber-conversion) but they’re not completely without mercy.  To help you fill that small but upbeat Jenna Coleman sized hole they’ve generated some excellent content to distract you.  It’s the end but the moment has been prepared for, as they say.

Impossible Jigsaw

Relive the most heroic moments from the Doctor’s latest companion.  Or listen to Jenna reflecting on working with Peter Capaldi. But if you need humor to heal then this gag reel of Jenna’s outtakes may help.

Perhaps you need to move on and embrace a universe without Clara, if so then braveheart faithful reader and watch the trailer for this weeks episode.

The Essential Doctor Who – Davros

Panini’s lavish series of bookazines – The Essential Doctor Who – continues with a 116-page issue devoted to Davros and Doctor Who’s other notorious villains.

 Essential Doctor Who 6 - Davros

“The last issue dealt with monsters,” says editor Marcus Hearn, “so this time we’re turning our attention to the Doctor’s humanoid adversaries. Davros made a huge impact in the recent story The Magician’s Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar, so he leads the charge!” (more…)
