‘Doctor Who’ Tells a “Haunting” Tale With a Chilling Night With Frankenstein and Frankenstein’s Author

It turns out lightning can strike twice with Doctor Who, which makes an electric return to form with “The Haunting of Villa Diodati.” Last week saw Season 12’s hot streak of episodes come to an end, but Doctor Who resuscitated its high-quality run with a perfect old-fashioned ghost story that pitted Frankenstein’s author against a modern Prometheus of Doctor Who‘s own making. Doctor Who has long delighted in doing on-the-nose tributes to famous literary figures, which range from the good (Charl...

‘Doctor Who’ is Dreaming of a Better Episode to Tackle Mental Health Than “Can You Hear Me?”

Chris Chibnall the overcompensating writer is back with “Can You Hear Me?” — a bloated Doctor Who episode that fumbles its message on mental illness with retro callbacks and far too many mysteries. The seventh episode of season 12 ends the hot streak that Doctor Who had been on lately, due to showrunner Chibnall, who co-writes the episode with Charlene James, reverting to his worst tendencies: overstuffing and overcomplicating a promising premise. “Can You Hear Me?” is about dreams, but’s also ...

‘Doctor Who’ Offers Love in the Time of Ecological Horror in Season Highlight “Praxeus”

Doctor Who is inherently a cheesy and sentimental show — despite its sci-fi label, it’s about as far from the hard science and technological imaginings that the genre offers. The series has always been about a quirky time traveler who saves the day with compassion. Doctor Who is often at its best when its leaning into its big, overwrought emotions and delivering a humanist vision of sci-fi and, yes, when it lets the Doctor save the day with love. “Praxeus” is an explosive, big-budget episode th...

Well, that certainly was a lot. Doctor Who has been firing on all cylinders this season after a lackluster season 11, and the latest episode “Fugitive of the Judoon” was the most explosive yet. It’s a wildly marked difference between seasons for showrunner Chris Chibnall, who seems to be taking critics’ words to heart after his inaugural season of underwhelming standalone episodes; this time, it’s all season-long mysteries and arcs, baby.
