[Doctor Who] S02E01: New Earth

IMDb Link.

Watch Date: 2018-11-12 (Amazon Prime Video India)

  • The season opener was much more fun and well paced than the Christmas special.
  • David Tennant was hamming a lot less than he did in the Christmas special.
  • The hamming honours were done by Lady Cassandra, no matter which actress was playing her.
  • Cat nurses! Giggle.
  • How to have shambling zombies without calling them zombies. Very good.
  • The ending, with millions of cured lab specimens being recognised as human, seemed very Pratchettian ‘All Things Strive’ to me.
  • So much running, as per trope.
