[Doctor Who] S10E05: Oxygen

IMDb link.

Watched on: Amazon Prime Video India

Watch date: early February 2020

Notes:

  • For such an action-driven episode, I found myself falling asleep and had to resume later.
  • Even the twist at the end seemed a bit forced.
  • Perhaps this is the whole Alain de Botton thing – maybe I just had low blood sugar when I watched it.
  • Again, it seemed very much like a generic scifi script which somebody had lying around that they adapted to a Doctor Who requirement. Complete with snide remarks about capitalism.
  • On the other hand, this did get Capaldi to be awesome and grumpy.
  • And this continues with the theme so far in the season of there being no real monster, just something gone horribly wrong. (Paperclip optimiser!)
