Storyline

After a lengthy absence, the Doctor returns to Earth and scoops up up Amy and Rory for yet another adventure. He also manages somehow to include Rory's dad, Brian Williams. Those aren't the only travelers however as Queen Nefertiti and big-game hunter John Riddell are also on board. The TARDIS next reappears on board a large ship and the Doctor is delighted to find a cargo of prehistoric dinosaurs on board. Using the ship's computers, Amy determines that the ship's crew is nowhere to be found. There is someone on board however who has no intention of giving up his precious cargo to the Doctor or anyone else who might try to take it from him. Written by garykmcd

I gave it a 3 because I'm being nice. It actually deserves a 2. It wasn't good at all! I was so looking forward to this episode and at the end of it, I was thinking 'Oh My God, did they actually just air that episode', because I was expecting it to be amazing. PLEASE don't do any more episodes like this! There was no plot whatsoever. I've seen a lot of comments and reviews that have said that it was amazing, and I can't see what was amazing about it. I can't even see what was GOOD about it! I only liked the first 5 minutes and the last 10 minutes, so that's 15 minutes out of 45 minutes. I'm sure next week's episode will be 10 times better...I HOPE!
