The Master (Part 6 – Not A Sim(m)ple Replacement)

Laser Screwdriver. Who’d have sonic? Let’s close out our look at the Doctor’s venerable and villainous adversary, the Master, with a look his most recent incarnation. If you remember, the last time we saw the Master, he had been sucked into the Eye of Harmony (or a modest replication) in the Doctor’s TARDIS. Luckily for […]

The Master (Part 5 – Still in Need of a New Body)

1996. Friends were tops on TV. Clinton was running for re-election against Bob Dole. And Doctor Who was coming back to television. Paul McGann was the Doctor, Daphne Ashbrook was the companion, and Eric Roberts was . . . the Master? Okay, it’s a curious bit of casting. The man who, at that time, was […]

Upcoming “Steampunk” Movies for 2014

More and more we are seeing Steampunk permeate mainstream culture and find its way into the epitome of mainstream that is Hollywood, but this year there aren’t many films left that could be described as Steampunk. Coming out on September 26th is a stop motion animated feature based on the children’s novel Here Be Monsters by Alan […]

Doctor Who – The Master (Part 4 -The Also Masters )

  Before we wrap up our exploration of the Master, I feel it’s important to consider those who, while maybe not as memorable or quick to mind as the others, have also assumed the guise of that most diabolical of Gallifreyans. Let us first start with the shortest on-screen Master. That would be Gordon Tipple […]

A Matter of Antimatter

Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry (who in my humble opinion is a true visionary and prophet of science fiction and science fact) is one of the most important things to further the advancement of humanity since the TARDIS. I could go on for hours about how his show actually brought us much of the […]

Doctor Who – Tired of Waiting?

So I’m sick and tired of waiting for the new season of Doctor Who. I’m sure you are too, so for all you Whovian junkies like myself I have found a fix . . . FAN FICTION! There are a number of very creative people out there who have been making wonderful stories in the […]

Women of Awesomeness: Buffy Summers

  In 1992 Joss Whedon (creator of oh so many things beloved in geek/nerdom) brought us a singularly appealing movie; Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At first blush it just looked silly. It was about a self-centered, cute ditzy cheerleader who just so happened to be the long lost mystical Slayer of vampires. Turns out the […]

Doctor Who – The Master (Part 3 : A New Body, At Last)

  Today we present to you the third installment (Part One and Part Two proceeded) of our analysis of Doctor Who’s arch-nemesis, The Master. Having taken over the body of Tremas (wait… that’s an anagram for something, innit?), the Master has been given a renewed life dedicated to destruction, chaos, and humiliating the Doctor. Gone […]
