Best looking episode. And best written in chibnal era.
23 February 2020 | by dexterbmetSee all my reviews

This is probably one of the best written doctor who episode in the Chris chibnal era. It's also one of the best looking doctor who episode. The directing and the production design Is brilliant as well as the cgi. It was good to see the doctor show her darker side instead of being an all known hero than she has been recently and it was good to see her genuinely not know what to do next. The one problem I had was the change in pacing between the two stories. It had the same problem as resolution when there was two stories both with completly different pacing which can be a bit draughting when one second its a small village and the next it's full of explosions. Other than that and some exposition it's fine
