The Doctor Who TARDISblend 58: The Snowmen

Merry Christmas to you all from us here at GeeksOfDoom.com – and we all know what Christmas means, right? That’s right: a brand new Doctor Who episode!

Series 7 continues with the annual Christmas Special of Doctor Who entitled The Snowmen. Seeking refuge and isolation in Victorian London, and protected by some faithful allies, the Doctor becomes a recluse after losing his previous companions. However, as he broods, a new evil plot is hatched by a new foe with connections to some long-ago adventures the Doctor has experienced.

During TARDISblend 58, we analyze the new Doctor Who, which comes complete with new iconic show titles and theme, and the debut (or is it?) of new companion Clara (Jenna Louise-Coleman). We discuss the new elements giving clues to Steven Moffat‘s overarching plots, as well as several cameo references to Classic Doctor Who in this episode.

Also, we have a look at the performances from some of the special guests in this episode by Richard E. Grant, and Sir Ian McKellen. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

The Doctor Who TARDISblend 47: The Doctor, The Widow, And The Wardrobe

Christmas time has come and gone, and with the festive season, as always, we received the gift of a Doctor Who Christmas Special for 2011. The Doctor (Matt Smith) finds himself indebted to Madge Arwell (Claire Skinner), a mother from World War II-era England, for saving his life. The Doctor, after learning that her husband is missing and presumed dead during the war, decides to help provide the best Christmas ever to Madge and her children.

In his effort, he uses technology from TARDIS to create a Christmas present that is, in fact, a dimensional portal to another planet called Androzani Major. Unfortunately one of the children sneak into the present early and begin exploring the world… the Doctor follows only to find that this planet of Christmas trees is not only in risk, but so is Madge and her children.
