Peter Capaldi to leave Doctor Who

News broke tonight that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who at christmas 2017.  The news was quite a surprise as the feeling that he was relishing the role, but with the announcement today it seems that his time was up.

After taking over from Matt Smith 3 years ago Peter Capaldi took on the role of the Doctor in the infamous 13th regeneration and has spent that time running around the universe with Clara Oswald up until 2016. Peter bought a sense of tradition with him being a senior looking doctor with a more stubborn manner laced with compassion.

Am I sad Peter Capaldi is leaving the role, he had some great moments, but now the search begins for the next Doctor to ride the Tardis across the breadth of space and depth of time. My money is on Idris Elba for being the next Doctor, anyone agree with me?

Sing Movie Review by a 10 year old Mini Geek

The new animation movie from Dreamworks had preview screenings across the UK and as a treat I took my little Mini Geek daughter to see the it and write up a review.

Mini Geek#1 review of Sing:

“I like Sing the movie because it’s funny and it’s full of the songs like Shake it Off by Taylor Swift, Firework by Katy Perry and I’m still standing by Elton John. It is also great because it had animals and if you’ve just heard the title of the film you wouldn’t you wouldn’t know that it was animals.”

There is also a phrase that everyone could use “don’t let fear stop you from doing the thing you love” which everyone lived up to in the end”. My favourite character was Gunter voiced by Nick Kroll, I like him because he’s funny, he can’t sing and he is a very silly dancer.”

“My mums favourite character is Buster Moon,  because he’s passionate about the theatre, And he loves his dad.  He was voiced by Matthew mcConaughey”.

“This movie was a great surprise with lots of songs, emotions and laughs in one great film.  We also saw people dancing in the cinema. I give this film 5 out of 5”.
