Well this series has been more of a rollercoaster than the last one, in terms of episode quality at least. A fairly good opening two-parter, not without its problems, then quite possibly the worst episode of
ever. Everything about it was just terrible.
Episode 4 was a return to average, at least, then out of nowhere comes episode 5 which, at the very least, no-one seems to be accusing of being "average." A small but noisy contingent have already decided what it means for the Doctor's history, based on only partially confirmed rumour, and have declared that they're out, and a thankfully even smaller contingent have decided it's the final proof that white males are no longer welcome in
Episode 3's going to leave a nasty stain on this series, but it's managed to learn from some of last year's mistakes, at least.
