    Definitely 10/10 and one of the best episodes of Who since the reboot. Great to see the return to a good old Pertwee style adventure but with a great contemporary framing. Everyone on their top game too, but Jenna and Ingrid really shone with the latter one of those unforgettable and brilliantly written and realised characters which seem to pop up so regularly in Moffat’s Who. I really have no idea how this will play out but the momentum of this well written and brilliantly paced and directed episode has me waiting desperately for Saturday. Best of this brave and splendid series which has been a complete triumph for Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi and cements them as the best combination of actor and show runner the show has ever had.

    Fantastic review! I love the political undertones, the thriller vibe, the global feel, incredible usage of an old villain, and stunning direction. It’s always great to have a proper, full-on UNIT story. With an established team, this seems like the perfect next step for the organisation, and I hope see more of them in the future. But, for now, here’s to next saturday!

    A fantastic story, and a well deserved 10/10. With a story this good, the only problem is that part 2’s going to have a very difficult time following up. It could very easily collapse under the weight of part 1. All the part 2s so far have been very good though, so I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about.

      Sounds as though part 2 is even better! There’s supposed to be an amazing set piece speech by Capaldi which totally knocks it out of the park and tops even the amazing ones Matt did during his time. This series really just keeps getting better and better. I’ve even been told that the Gatiss episode is a stunner, so that kind of removes the only likely low point until the end of this run. What a great series it’s been to date and how fantastic is Peter?
