A step in the right direction
26 November 2018 | by melodypond-20038See all my reviews

This episode was a step in the right direction. Not brilliant, but promising. The writing has been subpar this season and I have lost interest after the first few episodes - Chibnall's writing has done more harm than good for woman and minorities. However, the latest two episodes have been promising and has returned some of the fun and goofiness that I enjoyed about the first few seasons. Let's hope that they continue along this line
