In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year. The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler. Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruelest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid. Written by BBC Press Release

At one point River Song confronts a group of German soldiers three of whom are armed with MP 40 sub-machine guns. This scene takes place in 1938 and while the gun was designed in 1938 it was not produced until 1940. The correct gun for this period would have been the Bergmann MP-35 although it was produced in relatively small numbers. See more »

A crazy roller coaster ride
30 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Only Steven Moffat would have the audacity to name an episode "Let's Kill Hitler" and then limit Hitler's screen time to a cameo, as he is locked in a cupboard for almost the entire episode! This one is crazy, wacky, unpredictable, funny and sad - just what "Doctor Who" should be. It's also a very important episode for plot progression, as we see the beginnings of River Song, we learn more stuff about her, we see the Doctor coming face to face with his fixed (?) death date, etc. The story-of-the-week ain't bad either, with another new and fresh concept from Moffat (miniaturized people controlling robots from the inside!) and some great dialogue for the AntiBodies: "Please remain calm while your life is extracted. Please co-operate in your officially sanctioned termination"! In short, another terrific entry in what is so far my favorite season of "Doctor Who". *** out of 4.
