Doctor Who Review Blog: “The Bells of St. John”

Hi everyone! 🙂

For the Whovians out there (including myself) it’s going to be a big year for us. As of the 23rd November 2013, Doctor Who will turn 50 years old. After hearing the David Tennant and Billie Piper are back I am even more excited 🙂

Here is the link to the news story. Also fan girls here are the two doctors at the reading (taken earlier today).



I’ve also updated the schedule for this month. Also the Vlog reviews will now become blog reviews as it’s easier for me to write stuff and focus on after an episode.


On the 30th March 2013 was the return of the second part of series 7 (33 if you count the series dating back to 1963) with episode 6 called “The Bells of St. John.” This was a continuation where we left off from the Christmas Special and we meet the third incarnation of Clara Oswin Oswald.

For me, I was excited to watch this and definitely enjoyed watching it despite what a few friends and family said to me about this episode. All I can say is that as a stand-alone it would not make sense for the passing by TV viewer but the next seven episodes should tie it together before the 50th.

“The Bells of St. John” was very good and loved Jenna-Louise Coleman’s portrayal of Clara Oswin Oswald. She is an excellent companion already to the Doctor and would love to find out who she is and how she is connected to the previous two incarnations (the Dalek and Victorian Governess). I also love the new TARDIS interior and loved the references to the previous Doctors and of course the Ponds/Williams.

However I felt that there should have been a bit more in regards to the Great Intelligence. The Spoonheads were okay villains and could have been a bit more sinister. Oh and Moffat has scared children now with Wi-fi…

Otherwise I give this episode a 7.5/10 🙂


Here is the “The Bells of St. John”episode prequel if you have not seen it yet (I loved this and feel free to guess who the Doctor talks to):


For UK users only (sorry! 😦 ) here is the episode on  BBC iPlayer

See you all soon!
