We come from the land of the ice and snow!
2 October 2010 | by (North West England) – See all my reviews

This episode is no "Outlander", but I can't resist the lure of Vikings in space.

Sheila Allen steals the show and is great as fantastically over-the-top Valkyrie Brynhilda.

The production values are pretty good too, as the Viking set wouldn't be out of place in some epic blockbuster movie of the '50s.

The story is of course fantastically ludicrous as Smith conjures up some Norse gloves from space during some innocent play-acting with Penny and Will. (How boring that these things never happen on Earth). It's a great scene as the gloves fall from the sky and land on Smith's hands. The power of Thor's hammer also becomes available to the Doctor, and of course we all know that no good will come of it. Smith then is spirited off by Brynhilda to Asgard to face a showdown with all-powerful Thor. Let's just say that Smith wisely uses psychological tactics to get out of this one, rather than physical confrontation.

I'm pretty sure the costume prop which served as the head of Gundemar (The Questing Beast) from a few episodes back shows up briefly in this episode, although it looks a different colour here.

Not the best episode of the series and simply beyond absurd, but I honestly enjoyed it, so 6 from me.
