A power surge from a solar tsunami separates doppelgangers made from a special liquid flesh from their human originals. The Doctor tries to bring everyone together harmoniously but things are never that easy.
Feeling a bit padded with characters running around like headless chickens for no obvious reason, this is an episode with a terrifically interesting idea well-presented (how would you feel if there were two of you?) and some impressively spooky make-up for the “almost people”. There’s also a brilliantly SPOILER unexpected climax / cliffhanger which builds upon the intrigue of the Eye Patch Lady. “We’re coming for you.” Wonderful. Hopefully, we’ll get some answers next week before the show takes a summer break. That said, it never quite gels completely (hehe) but feels like it just, only just, keeps losing it’s grip on edge-of-the-seat greatness.
This Doctor Who episode contains unpleasant scenes, violence.
