Goofs

When Natasha fires her laser pistol at the Stengos mutant, she doesn't hold it steady (while the post-production laser effect remains steady as a rock, and clearly not emitting from the muzzle of the pistol). See more »

Quotes

Grigory: Look, if I open that door too soon, the molecular structure of the body will break down, and poor old Stengos will turn into a pool of high-protein water. Even if I were confident I could reconstitute it, we do not have a suitable vessel into which it could be ladled.

Not the best episode I have seen.
13 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I will be honest as an avid whovian.

This is possibly one of the weakest story lines that I have seen.

It just seemed like the whole process was a chore.

There are not many good points tho marvel over and well it is disappointing.

Not much more to say and to be honest I can understand why there was a hiatus. The story of the daleks is a great one to say the least. But this was not so. It just dragged on and well we know the great Dalek stories that have been written and this was not so. It pains me to say this but I am saddened at the lack of effort put into this episode.
