“Day of the Doctor” Review

      The 50th Anniversary of “Doctor Who” and the celebratory special “Day of the Doctor” was perfect!  From beginning-to middle-to beginning-to earlier beginning (yes, it’s a thing)-to end-to new beginning.  Any further reading of this review will contain SPOILERS for not only the special but past (and future?) episodes.  “Day of The Doctor” had […]
