That about.me Thingy
The Hairy Housewife
I'm married and have autism and epilepsy, which I write about a lot. I keep tarantulas because I don't like cats, and I love to read.

I have re-watched this episode three times and even now I am not sure that this review can possibly do justice to what I saw on the screen. Yes. The Name of The Doctor was that audacious, that mind blowing, … Continue reading
The hype for this episode was at a fever pitch. The last time Neil Gaiman wrote an episode for Doctor Who, he wrote what most people would call a game changing masterpiece. The second that Cybermen were mentioned, my hopes … Continue reading
Stop the press!! Call the Prime minister, call the show producers, call up the entire internet, call Stephan Moffat. Yes guys. That’s right. For the first time in New Who’s run I’ve actually REALLY enjoyed a Mark Gatiss episode! I … Continue reading
I’m still not entirely sure that this episode makes an iota of sense and I’ve watched the episode twice now. How did Clara end up with a literal reset button? How did time reassert itself with the two brothers touching? … Continue reading
I’m going to leave the proper review to my lovely guest writer because she’s pretty awesome at breaking down Classic and New Who. However, I will say this much: For all of its ridiculousness and familiar plot twists and ideas … Continue reading
