Doctor Who Season 36

Oxygen was a great episode!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Space: The Final Frontier. Final because it wants to kill us..."

That's twice the BBC has referenced ST in its own series, the first of course being our own Death-Watch. Is this not a massive copyright infringement that would incur the wrath of Paramount? Or do you think they got permission?

I loved it from 10 seconds in: "Space The Final Frontier. Final, because it wants to kill us." Wink

Apparently Jamie Mathieson's brief from the Moff was to make space scary again. He did that, and also added in a nice anti-capitalist message as corporations finally went the whole hog and started charging us for the air we breathe!!

Calpaldi & Mackie were brilliant. This was an episode that put them through the wringer, and both rose with fantastic performances. Perhaps the best episode since "Flatline" - which was another Jamie Mathieson script.

Oh, and NO magic reset at the end. To save Bill's life, the Doctor blinded himself. Will the 13th Doctor see out his days without any sight?

I'm pretty sure that B7 didn't get permission - it might have cost money Wink

Less sure about nuWho - maybe they did ask. Although, strictly speaking, the line was different to the original. I'm sure Kirk didn't see space as deadly. If he did, he'd just wrestle it into submission Grin

Indeed, rather it was rational, logical, and most of all, explained cunning and misdirection on the Doctor's part that saved the day.
He had already won, it was just that the villains (and the viewers) didn't know it yet.

Doctor Who at it's best.

Snog it and shoot it? Are you sure you're thinking of Kirk? Sounds more like Avon to me. Angry

Doctor Who does the Walking Dead.

An ok-ish episode nothing spectacular but passed time well enough. Like most of the recent Who episodes background characters and concepts could do with more fleshing out and perhaps a little more depth.

Dead in animated space suits. An interesting way to have a pseudo scientific explanation of walking dead, allowing DW to cash in on the zombie craze without losing their sci fi credibility.
 
President Solvite
It also reminded me of Wallace and Grommit the Wrong Trousers.. Especially when the suits 'malfunctioned'

I liked the sly digs at capitalism and 'elf and safety. Also finally a cliffhanger ending.

Nardole, no dobut, in the role of Grommit. Grin

The frustrating thing about this last batch of really good episodes is that the background characters are so interesting and well-rounded-- and then they're killed off! For instance, I really wanted to know more about the blue guy. Grin
 
briggsy1
yes, how did one of the Ultras end up on the space station?

Moffat seemed to throw the "Everybody lives" out of the window and itīs good Grin

I loved the opening sequence...the monlogue with "Final Frontier..." and the scene where the poor guy canīt hear his wife yelling...in space, nobody will hear you scream.

Acting is exceptional again. I still hope BAFTA may wait for Peter at the end of this but I doubt it....it is, after all, a show for kids....Angry

I hate to rate part one of a multi part episode before I see the rest, but as part ones go, that was a ten.
