I thought this was great. A villian, you say? Who kept cryogenically frozen bodies in his lair, before passing it on to his son, you say? Time travel loops, with visitations from alternative selves? A world frozen in boring perpetuity? An evil kind of ‘insurance’? All sounds A BIT FAMILIAR.
I jest of course. I really did think this one was remarkably creative, especially for Doctor Who. Finally some fucking time travel! I loved the cryogenics and the live time travel projected film thing. I thought Katherine Jenkins was perfect. I didn’t love the flying shark and that stupid crashing spaceship and why does there always have to be a space fish anyway. But imho everything else was spot on, and it looked gorgeous. Bravo.
