In Which I Review Doctor Who (10x4)
--The figure behind Chekhov's Vault seems delighted that several university students got eaten by space lice. Definitely the Master, then! But which one--Simm or Gomez?
--I think I shall say this every week until we get an answer but what exactly is the point of Nardole? Especially when the Doctor and the Vault seem to be enough to keep the figure locked in the Vault?
--This episode makes clear that Bill did not know what a Time Lord is or that they regenerate. She does learn about the former but the latter remains elusive. Since Peter Capaldi is leaving, I guess Bill is going to get the "surprise!" regeneration.
--Speaking of, Peter Capaldi is such a delight especially with his awkward and quiet humor, like crunching a chip at an inopportune moment.
--Yes, Bill. The Time Lords did wear funny robes and big hats.
--"I'm scared." "Don't be." "Why not?" "It doesn't help."
--The bugs were creepy as hell; like bedbugs on steroids.
