Great surprise ending
27 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

For the most part, this continuation of "The Rebel Flesh" is an average "Doctor Who" episode. It doesn't really expand on the themes of its predecessor (how much do memories and emotions define us?), and it doesn't do as much as it could with the unprecedented (if you don't count the sloppy finale of "Journey's End") idea of two identical Doctors (it does contain a clone-catfight, though!). But that ending....to quote the Doctor, Yowza! Suddenly, this two-parter that seemed to be marking time (albeit quite passably), turns out to be an essential part of the progression of the bigger story, in more ways than one. Now let's see if the second half of season 6 can deliver on the promises of the very promising first half. *** out of 4.
