Cast / crew
Tightly written and irresistibly paced as the Doctor (who doesn’t even appear for the first twenty minutes) conspires to subdue, without bloodshed, an asteroid stronghold defended by two armies. His late appearance proves thematically important as the fear of his reputation as someone who will bend time, space and anything else he wishes to his will is just as powerful as his presence. It’s an intriguing backbone to all the sci-fi ‘splosions and shooting. It’s cool to see all various races back and the acting is a little more consistent from the non-Matt Smith cast than it has tended to be this season. While, the series-motif of constantly blurting into tears is rather more justified here, it still seems rather turn-on-and-off-able.
This Doctor Who episode contains violence.
