The Doctor Who TARDISblend 90: The Girl Who Died
cGt2099   |  

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

Arriving in medieval Scandinavia, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) are captured by a raiding group of Vikings. Returning to their village, the Vikings are confronted by a being claiming to be Odin. But tragedy is imminent, and the Doctor must work out a way to save the villagers.

During TARDISblend 90, we are joined by special guest Andrew Sorcini of The Drill Down. We discuss the first appearance of the wonderful Maisie Williams as Ashildr in this season of Doctor Who, and the references and call-backs to previous episodes and seasons of the show. We have a look at the comedic elements of the story, and how the overall plot of this episode (9.5 “The Girl Who Died”) pays homage to Akira Kurosawa‘s Seven Samurai.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend podcast!

Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The BLENDOVER Podcast and The Heavy Metal Historian Podcast) and geek journalist Tom Cheredar of Gigaom, TARDISblend is a podcast that takes a look at the ongoing adventures in the Doctor Who Universe – as Peter Capaldi makes his journey as the Doctor!

  1. Hi Guys. I’ve just watched the latest installment and wow! Now we’re getting into the pace of things. I felt the storyline was fascinating, direction and production, first class, Maisie wonderfully portrayed her new Me character. There was just enough siliness and humour from Rupert, a Lion King creature with enough gravitas as not to distract from the main plot points and a score from dear Murray, second to none. And the overall sentiment of a “love of life” was, I felt, crafted beautifully. So as far as I’m concerned all is shaping up nicely for the second half of this oh so fleeting season.
    I hope you guys appreciated it as much as myself….. byeeeee
