This nightmare finally ends.
18 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This two parter is one of the worst Doctor Who two parter. It is a hellish nightmare for me, they stuck in a factory, only one place, for two episodes. The ganger thingy is not exciting and they are one of the worst enemy of The Doctor as well.

The ending just overshadowed whole episode. I know that the Doctor Who team is preparing to spend most of their budget to season finale, but I think new "Steven Moffats" in writing team can write better episodes with minor budgets: at least better than this. We witnessed it before and recent episode "The Doctor's Wife" is a very good example. I know this series is turning to something awesome under the leadership of Steven Moffat, but they should make this "middle" episodes more better.

I was gonna give it 5, but I'll just add one point just because of the ending. My vote is 6/10.
