The fifth episode of Doctor Who Season 10 will be starting in a few minutes if anyone has any spot reactions. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole venture into space ...

Feel free to comment.

SPOILERS MIGHT FOLLOW:

This episode is a bit by the numbers, something is off in the pacing which as ever rushes along at high speed. However, it still maintains the soft renaissance that has characterised recent episodes. There is a touch of foreshadowing in The Doctor’s lecture that telegraphs what will follow. Space is a dangerous place to live. In space no one can hear you scream, something that provides some playful horror.

There are some natty ideas about the technology in use. Bill seems disappointed by artificial gravity and if she seems blase at the stat that soon wears off. As usual, The Doctor isn’t sharing his plan, though that might be because he is winging it.

There is more than a touch of pain in this episode. And some consequences which feed into next week.
