Class, the third spin-off of the newly constituted Doctor Who, has not been getting much love; Ira Nayman argues that it should.
Okay, let me just put this out there. My favorite science fiction TV program is Doctor Who. To most of you that statement probably elicits a shrug of the shoulders and a casual “Meh. Whatever”. But let me put it this way; The show has been going on longer than I’ve been alive. And […]
It is a pleasure to report that I thought the first story of the new series was the best Doctor Who I have seen in a long time
