    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Daleks

Here, Douglas Adams’ masterpiece collides with, who many consider the greatest Doctor Who of all-time, Tom Baker as he clashes with the […]

    Forget Lost & 24 – Think Ashes to Ashes

    The Doctor. Which is it? Love it or Good ole' days syndrome?

    We’re now at the halfway mark of the first season of the Steven Moffat era for Doctor Who, which stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.

    Robin Hood vs. Robin Hood

    Ok, yes, one was directed by Ridley Scott, stars Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and William Hurt and probably had a budget well beyond 10 times the other one.
