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…

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…
