Doctor Who 33.08 Let’s Kill Hitler (2011)

The Doctor, Amy, Rory and the TARDIS are kidnapped at gunpoint and taken to 1938 Berlin where they inadvertently interrupt the assassination of Adolf Hitler.

6/10

How had there not been an Seventies exploitation movie with this title? While the episode story is too jarring to convince (especially regarding a brainwashed assassin who suddenly isn’t when the plot needs it) and repeatedly putting a principal character’s life in danger works to undermine it’s potential drama, there’s just too much fun spread around to keep complaining. When you’ve got lines like “Take Hitler and put him in that cupboard”, the rest of the episode gets a pass.

This Doctor Who episode contains unpleasant scenes.

Classified PG by BBFC. Parental Guidance.
