Great episode new story but filled with emotions..
20 April 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

No spoilers...It was a great episode because it had new characters new story (related to old one) but story and direction was marvellous that I thought it wasn't new at all. Some scenes were very touching and showed the true nature of humans what a scientist would do if millions are at stake..and milner (rose leslie) did a great job marvellous She is new in the show but got into character in 5mintues I liked her about the episode it was in the past in 1974 where the idea of virus originated Phillip carvel and milner had a great chemistry..Phillip carvel is father of arby and Jessica and what happened with them was very cruel..milner and Phillip begin to prepare virus and milner eliminates all the threats to them at last I wanna say it was a great episode don't listen to the haters or bad reviews because either they are too sentimental or too naive to watch this episode...
