A Classic Enemy Returns in Thrilling ‘Doctor Who’ New Year’s Day Special (RECAP)

Happy Who Year!

Christmas just didn’t feel right this year without the annual festive Doctor Who episode, but thankfully, the show’s first ever New Year’s Day special is the perfect hangover cure. It’s fun, fast-paced, and at times thrilling; the kind of alien-versus-earth adventure which was sorely missing from season 11. It’s almost hard to believe this is the same Chris Chibnall that wrote the terribly mundane “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” season finale.

Chibnall intentionally avoided using old-school Who villains in his first season as show-runner. He wanted a fresh start with new characters and new monsters, and while not all of them landed, the idea of establishing a new era of Who was an admirable goal. It’s perhaps that lack of familiarity across ten episodes that helped build anticipation and made the return of the Daleks (or, at least, a Dalek) so exciting.

REVIEW: ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ wastes a lot of time with special effects

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

Rated: PG-13 for adult situations, violence

Stars: 2 stars

Bruce’s Take: It’s deeper than the first film but it’s not quite in Harry Potter’s quidditch league.
