I’m not gonna lie. The 8th series of the revived Doctor Who has, so far, been a steaming pile of crap. Not through any fault of the actors. Capaldi is brilliant as The Doctor. It’s just the stories have been incredibly poor. It was like Russell T Davis had returned to the writing duties.
Things brightened up a bit last week with “Mummy on the Orient Express”, which would have been great had the titular express been the ACTUAL express rather than an entirely unnecessary futuristic version travelling through deep space.
Tonight’s episode, “Flatline”, by comparison to the eight episodes that preceded it, was a work of goddamn art. Brilliant! Utterly brilliant! It’s unfathomable as to how all the other trashy stories were greenlit when this gem of a tale was also in the mix.
I shan’t say anything more, and I urge people not to post any spoilers, but it is without a doubt this series’ “Blink”. It's worth wading through all the garbage like "Kill the Moon" in order to see.Something's not right, here
