Capaldi great, All others grate.
25 October 2014 | by prowler0000-2See all my reviews

An eco-mess with almost nothing to contribute to the recent improvement of the new series.

Trees take over the world, There's some CGI wolves & a Tiger. Singular.

Literary culture-vultures expecting some William Blake will be left wanting, and to be honest there doesn't appear to be much 'night' here. Misleading much..? Having just re-read the poem, I can see some tenuous links to the majestic source material, but not enough to warrant stealing 25% of the 1st stanza!

Plaudits to Mr Capaldi, Though. An acting masterclass: just the right amount of unhinged. Ms Coleman & Mr Anderson still make an incompatible couple, but I have to admit he's a bit more likable after this episode. & altogether too many kids in this one.

But the next ep looks hopeful.....
