The Doctor's request for a long list of items with a biscuit added at the end just because she loves biscuits is reminiscent of the Eleventh Doctor's request to Canton Everett Delaware III in Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut (2011) for a long list of items ending with "twelve Jammie Dodgers and a fez."

Six episodes in and I'm just waiting for the show to change hands again.

Another episode that is just entertaining enough. But I would like the show back that moved me to tears, made me laugh and surprised me with the odd twist or unexpected moment. This dry and humorless version leaves me hugely disappointed every week. 😒
