Why Canon Matters

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT FOR DOCTOR WHO SERIES 12 FINALE EPISODE.  I know I said I was done with Who but I promise this isn't just another reason to rag on the series 12 finale and why The Timeless Children is undoubtedly the most insulting episode to anyone that cares about Doctor Who and its history. The [...]

Doctor Who The Hell Cares Anymore

****Warning: The following contains spoilers for Jodie Whittaker's run of Doctor Who. Reader discretion is advised**** A couple of years ago, I wrote a series of posts where I pontificated on the possibility of a female Doctor and, while I understood the backlash surrounding the character's gender swap, I considered it the show's only possible [...]
