My business works because it's actually not a business. And by this I mean I hardly make any money with my pictures. For me photography is not a way to make money but to invest money, and I work several other jobs to be able to pay for my art. I'm a tour guide on waste to energy plants and wastewater treatment facilities, I'm a concierge at the house I'm living, I work as a Photoshop instructor and on weekends I take care of the library of the University.
Sometimes people say to me: I can hardly believe you're not making money with your photos because they are better than the work of many professional photographers.
Of course it's flatteri
First up - apologies for the delay in this review, and the lack of reviews for the last two episodes of series 11. Overseas travel meant that I wasn't on top of those episodes, and it took me a little while to catch up. Briefly, "It Takes You Away" was comfortably the best episode the series had to offer, while "The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos" was the best Chibnall had to offer, which is damning an episode with faint praise.

It's a tough ship to turn. And to the surprise of very few, this is indeed a brilliant episode. What's more, this episode feels more "old school" DOCTOR WHO than any so far. I've been moaning for weeks now that it would be nice for the Doctor to actually have a nice set of monsters to stand up to, and "The Witchfinders" actually delivers.
More interestingly, this episode actual
"Kerblam!" is arguably the most traditional DOCTOR WHO story this series has seen so far, and by that I mean, it's the first story I feel you could grab a classic Doctor and pop him in and he wouldn't feel out of place. Even "Rosa" and "Demons of the Punjab" would feel a little odd with Hartnell popping around and lecturing us on the evils of racism (well, Hartnell's probably not the best example...). As such, whether you think that's a good thing or not is largely dependent on your feelings of the classic series.
As a fan of DOCTOR WHO across the board, I have to admit that it was quite nice to see an episode like this. Set, for the most pa
