DOCTOR WHO Series Eight Review: “Mummy On The Orient Express” (Co-written With Alexandrina Brant @ Miss Alexandrina)

As promised, a reblog of Engie’s official post of Mummy on the Orient Express review #2. It’s pretty overview-y, but we quote a few things and watch a few things, and, as usual, I say a lot. Enjoy. 😉

Musings From Neville's Navel

Good evening! I’m a lizard woman from the dawn of time and this is my wife and I’m* reviewing the latest episode of Doctor Who, “Mummy on the Orient Express,” with Alexandrina Brant from Miss Alexandrina. She’s a pretty cool blogger and we have more than a few interests in common, including books, photography, and Quidditch!

*SORRY NOT SORRY. I saw my chance and I took it, all right?

P.S. You can find previous collaborative reviews of Doctor Who‘s eighth series here.


Alexandrina Brant is a second-year psychology and philosophy student at Reading University, England, which means she alternates between planning experiments and critiquing history. When not polishing her fantasy romance novel about time travel, she’s cosplaying steampunk, singing, and playing Quidditch for the university team. She has authority in writing this review because she’s River Song’s doppelganger, hair and all. You can catch her blogging at Miss Alexandrina

  1. Great review! I’m realllllly disappointed with this season’s writing. I’m almost flabbergasted when people say he’s the best Doctor yet. Um, what? Anyway, I quit watching the show finally. I may watch a couple eps if people tell me, but for now I’m feeling good about being done.

    That’s doesn’t mean I don’t rewatch old RTD years episodes. Cuz those are still ridiculously awesome.

    1. Me, too. It’s disheartening the direction it’s been going; I can see some of these plots working, but the WAY they’ve been going about them has not impressed me.
      I like Capaldi, but Ten will always be my favourite Doctor. Twelve is too…argumentative for my liking. 😦
      Sad to hear you’ve stopped watching the show, but I can see your reasoning behind that. Did you watch Flatline? It’s one of my favourite episodes of this series, because it felt more of a pre-Moffatt piece. The monsters were intriguing.

      Yes. RTD episodes rock so much. 🙂

      1. I’ll check out Flatline since you recommended it. I do like intriguing monsters. Ten’s always gonna be my favorite too. Well maybe this series can end and they can pick it up again in 5 years or something.

        1. Yeah, it would be interesting for them to take a break. Sometimes I think that they’re putting out Doctor Who on a yearly basis for the sake of the fandom/its own sake. I’m about to watch tonight’s one, and I’ll tell you my thoughts on it afterwards.
