Trivia

The alien "Odin" wears a helmet with one eye covered. This is similar to the actual myths about Odin, who plucked out one of his own eyes in exchange for a drink from the Well of Knowledge. See more »

Goofs

Straight (unadulterated) testosterone can not be taken orally because the liver readily deactivates it. Of course, that's in humans, not Mires which probably have different abilities. See more »

Get better writers you idiots

This episode just sucked. I found myself cringing all the time. Nothing happened in it, too much stupid dialogue, goofy things, and general awfulness. I don't know what's happened to doctor who but it ain't good. Not at all. The enemies looked ridiculous, the acting was pitiful, and the whole thing with resurrection made no sense. It was boring, cringy, and generally just bad in every way. This series has been disappointing, and this episode just epitomises why.

Please help doctor who. I don't know who liked this episode, but whoever you are, open your eyes!! David tennanf and Christopher ecclestions episode were so much better.... So so so much better,,.
