Decent conclusion.
10 December 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A great title, an episode with some very good elements, it was big and bold, but you'd have needed to have enjoyed the first episode to buy into this one, maybe an episode not hugely appealing to a casual fan.

There were some good scenes between The Doctor and Graham, and it was nice to see a bit of conflict between the pair, I thought Bradley Walsh was excellent in this. Jodie was very good here too, I thought one of her best performances to date.

Some very nice special effects, it wasn't an epic series finale, by any stretch of the imagination, when you consider finales from previous seasons. Overall though, I liked it, I thought the writing was rather good, with some huge ideas, fairly well realised.

So the big question, Resolution........ Of .......... Not long to wait.

7/10 Summary: Ambitious, rather good in fact.
