Well, hello again, everyone! Before I begin, a request: I very seriously thought about not bothering to write anything up for this one. So, if you read and/or enjoy my thoughts about Doctor Who, please let me know. Thanks!

Ok, non-spoilery review: I've used the term "curate's egg" before, and I'd almost go so far as to use it now. That said, I liked quite a lot about this one...it just didn't quite work. It's possible that a longer running time (this was barely over an hour) might have helped, but I'm not sure. I guess it'll boil down to this: great baddies, great Doctor, slightly eye-rolling pseudo-B plot. It's honestly hard to say much more without spoilers, but I'd recommend watching it for the baddies and the Doctor/Nardole alone.

Ok, let's pull that cracker and make with the spoilers )

COMING THIS SPRING: Season 36! A new companion and a whole new set of eyes to view the wild, wonderful, and often terrifying universe! Bill joins the Doctor and Nardole in all new adventures--episode titles TBA! (Probably, to be fair, within the next couple of weeks...)

Oh, and for those who don't get the joke in the title, guess what Doctor Who was called when it ran in Mexico in the '60s? And guess what it's called in Spanish speaking countries now?
