Suzanne says…it’s a small world

This title might remind you of a famous song that has a certain influence over this article’s topic. So, what is it about? It’s about us being all different and yet very similar. It’s about us accepting our differences, and in today’s society this proves to be a bigger challenge every day. As it happens,…

Suzanne says… Sean Pertwee shouldn’t play the Third Doctor!

The other day I was catching up on some Gotham episodes I had missed, when a familiar face appeared on the screen. I wasn’t prepared to see Missy in Gotham and yet there she was, as perfectly villainous as she use(d) to be in Doctor Who. Suddenly, I wasn’t watching Gotham anymore; I was watching…

Suzanne says… it’s just a name!

Every Whovian knows it by now, a major change is happening in Doctor Who. Our beloved Time Lord is turning into a Time Lady in the next series. One interesting fact about this would be that it raises an equally interesting question: how are we going to call the Doctor from now on? For decades,…

Suzanne says… do we want another spin off?

Isn’t it tempting to imagine spin offs from your favourite shows starring your favourite characters? Doctor Who has certainly done that in the past, but not all have been successful. I confess I love spin offs, for various reasons. First, because I can enjoy another part of an universe I enjoy. Second, because said universe…

Suzanne says… are we getting a rebooted Classic Who?

With news from Twice upon a Time happening on a regular basis, I’m slowly getting excited about the Christmas special. Because I miss my Doctor Who fix? No. Because it’s Peter Capaldi’s last episode? No. It’s because a bridge is about to be built between two eras. In a previous article, I mentioned the frontier…

Suzanne says… he is my favourite

Picture this: someone once created a show with its main character being an alien who has the uncanny ability to regenerate. But 50 years and over ten faces later, it’s still the same character. Here comes the tricky question: which Doctor is your favourite? Some might reply: I don’t have a favourite, because he is…

Suzanne says… canon or non-canon?

If you are an avid reader of those pieces (Hello, Suman!), you know that I already mentioned how difficult it may be for an aspiring Whovian to jump into that extended universe.  Once all TV serials and the movie have been watched, Big Finish audiobooks seem to be the right place to continue your journey.…

Suzanne says…I wish I lived in the UK!

It’s not easy to be a fan these days. One might argue that internet and social networks made it much easier for fans to indulge in their passion and in a way, they are probably right. But being a fan can be quite frustrating sometimes… Doctor Who has become a global phenomenon, especially in recent…

Suzanne Says… How has violence evolved in Doctor Who?

For over 50 years, Doctor Who has been evolving. The changing lead actor, the advancement to colour and the improvement in special effects have all changed the show dramatically. But there is one aspect that has evolved and strikes me as very interesting: violence in the show. Doctor Who was meant for children, but it…

Suzanne Says… Once Upon A Fan

Once a Whovian always a Whovian? I’m really tempted to agree with that statement, mostly because being a Whovian requires a lot of time investment (and yes, let’s say it: quite a financial investment as well). Aren’t the fans from the early hour lucky? Not only did they watch Doctor Who when it was originally…
