Mind-blowingly AMATEURISH.
4 June 2017 | by evimchineSee all my reviews

It is really impressive … how, in this episode, they managed to put every single thing deep into the uncanny valley of amateurishness. Especially since it's not due to the budget. The story, the dialogues, the behaviour, the look… there is *so* much narm in there… you can't help but feel second-hand embarrassment. Which itself is quite the feat, given how unsurprising and hence bland the whole thing is. Doctor Who really died with the last episodes. Like going down a slide of badness. I will not watch this show again, unless I know that the core team … the culture there … has been replaced. Thank you for ruining it … Moffat.
