4 things we need from the next Doctor

One of the most subtle and gifted actors to take on the role of the Time Lord, Peter Capaldi has been terrific at the helm of the TARDIS over the past four years. But before 2017 comes to an end, he’ll be handing over the mantle to someone else. The new Doctor will see their...

Why ‘Sherlock’ MUST come back for a fifth season

With the show’s creators giving fans very little information to go on, the future of the BBC’s Sherlock is very much in limbo at the minute. The majority of the viewers are desperate to have the show back despite very mixed opinions on last month’s ‘The Final Problem’. Season 4’s finale caused a lot of...

5 possible replacements for Peter Capaldi in ‘Doctor Who’

“Here we go again…” Once every four years or so, the media gets to play the game of ‘who will be the next Doctor?’ – a game that often involves the same names cropping up again and again. Here at CultBox, we’re more than happy to jump on a Whovian bandwagon; but we can’t help...

Why you should be watching ‘Kings of Con’

Seeing as the cast of Firefly are doing a show set in a similar realm on the same network, on paper at least, this show should not exist.

‘Sherlock’ (2010-2017): A eulogy

There’s no denying that Sherlock was a juggernaut of a show. It changed the way we experienced TV with its slick on screen text display, surreal imagery and its lovable yet flawed characters. With ‘The Final Problem’ all wrapped up, the fandom is now divided. Some want another season while others are happy with the...

Why you should be watching ‘Rick and Morty’

Imagine a show like this. It’s set in an infinitely complex sci-fi sandbox in which countless amounts of planets, dimensions and alien species co-exist. Our guide to this universe is a somewhat irascible, wacky older man who’s an expert on everything the vast and terrifying universe has to offer. And to ensure that the man...

Has ‘Sherlock’ lost the plot?

With the lowest viewing figures since the acclaimed BBC drama began, ‘The Final Problem’ begged the question: has Sherlock lost the plot? The elaborate storylines of the fourth season finale stretched the bounds of credibility to its limits, and whether its adventurous approach to story-telling was a bold or a foolish move depends on your...

Is ‘Sherlock’ really a fantasy rather than a crime drama?

So, is Sherlock really a fantasy rather than a crime drama? “Eh?” I hear you ask. But I haven’t gone mad, I’m not on a trip right now, and last time I checked my walls were still vertical. I’m deadly serious: there’s a legitimate case (ho ho) that we should talk about Sherlock as fantasy...

Why do teens connect so well with ‘Our Girl’?

Our Girl the army drama, recently re-surfacing on our screens, has become extremely popular in all age groups, from teens to adults. But why do us teens love it so much? Why do we find it so easy to connect with? The exciting storyline kept me constantly gripped, but what made the programme so relatable...
