Suzanne says… From ‘The Waters of Mars’ to water on Mars

I have always enjoyed watching science-fiction shows. Not just because of the new worlds that are created, but mainly because of the science behind the fiction.  By creating storylines set in the future, artists (writers, showrunners, etc.) project themselves in the future and try to describe how it would be like, what kind of technologies…

Suzanne says… I finally met the Tenth Doctor

13 years ago, when I was first introduced to Doctor Who, it was a time of joy for Whovians. Their favourite show was finally back! 13 years ago, I discovered a fascinating character, I witnessed his regeneration and… I stopped watching Doctor Who. Now don’t get me wrong. I didn’t stop watching because my heart…

Suzanne says… it’s good to be back

Did you think I had nothing more to say about Doctor Who? Sure, it has been a while since I wrote here, but there is always something to say about our beloved Doctor! And after a few months of hiatus, I’m back for Season 2 of those opinion articles. So, what did trigger my return,…

Suzanne says… that was quite unexpected

If you haven’t watched the Christmas special already, then you might want to skip reading this article and save it for later, when you have watched Twice Upon a Time. Yes, there are spoilers ahead!

Suzanne says… music is part of Doctor Who’s DNA

With Delia Derbyshire awarded with a posthumous honorary doctorate of arts and the recent passing of Who music legend Dudley Simpson, I felt compelled to write about how important music is in Doctor Who. First, let me state an obvious fact: opening credits are part of a TV show’s identity. You hear a certain tune…

Suzanne says… is Doctor Who fashionable?

With Doctor Who’s new outfit revealed last week, Whovians got a first glimpse of the Thirteenth Doctor (and her new TARDIS). They instantly started to study the Doctor’s choice of clothing, pinpointing the similarities with her previous incarnations. Seeing the posts flourish about the Doctor’s new outfit, I couldn’t help but remember the Fourth and…

Suzanne says… we love stories!

“Once upon a time…” Who doesn’t know those words? They are universal and probably one of the common links between individuals.  Stories send us back to childhood, because they are our first contact with fictional worlds. They trigger our imagination, convey memories, traditions and they can be passed on to preserve history. Stories can take…

Suzanne says… let’s talk about the future

The cast of Doctor Who series 11 has been revealed earlier this week, provoking reactions all around the web. This morning one reaction reached my office, when a former trainee rushed in and asked me “what do you think about the new companions?” I was working on an historical research about Celtic flagons that had…

Suzanne says… this might be emotional blackmail

With some classic episodes lost or missing, Doctor Who has become some sort of a television legend. Not every show has its own Indiana Jones travelling the world looking for tapes of the missing episodes! Reconstruction works based on audio and stills also gave a scent of “lost treasure” to Doctor Who. But as many…

Suzanne says… what if Doctor Who got cancelled?

I was surfing on Twitter, searching for some inspiration for the present article, when I came across a rather interesting tweet. Suddenly I knew what I was going to write about! The tweet was sharing an opinion on what would happen and how fans would react if, heaven forbid, our favourite show was cancelled for…
