tardis oldschool

Waters of Mars

Hmm. I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as I expected. There were strong Impossible Planet/42 vibes, making it feel more recycled than resonant, and the Doctor was largely passive.

I had some problems with the story. Snip for spoilersCollapse )

katlinel described this as mostly being a setup for what's coming next month, and I think that's right.

I think Granny Weatherwax would describe the Doctor's behaviour as cackling.
