Goofs

When "Dr. Mysterio" first enters, he is shot at, and when the gun runs dry, it simply makes a click click sound, but this is incorrect. The pistol is a striker fired semi-automatic, when the last round has fired, the slide should be open and locked back, yet this one is closed. Also, even were the slide hold open to fail, there is no hammer to repeatedly "click;" the striker is spring loaded and held back by the sear, when the trigger is pulled, the sear drops and allows the striker (firing pin) to move forward against the primer under spring pressure, this would indeed make a "click" sound, but it does not reset until after the round is fired and the slide cycles (or one manually cycles the slide). So even if the slide hold opened failed, there would be only a single click, not multiple. See more »

Superman-Inspired Origins Doctor Who
28 June 2017 | by DCSassyQueenSee all my reviews

8.5

I am a sucker for superhero-inspired TV shows and I loved this. Grant was basically Superman with a Batman costume. It was such a fun time & it really made me see how much Clara was weighing the Doctor down. Nardole is so funny & I hope he remains a companion for a while because he makes the 12 Doctor better.

Ready for Season 10 !!!!
