Gotta say - whilst last weeks was kept entertaining by Cummings' campery, this one actually had an interesting premise and delivered the strongest all-round episode so far. Something of a re-invention of Solaris, I feel this is probably going to turn out to be the best of a weak season.
Jon Pertwee vs Vincent Price. Who is the hero, and who the villain? This battle could cost the Earth!
It felt like it was a Moffat-esque script, but as it is done by a new showrunner it felt fresh.
Ribbons was great. I can always appreciate a character that knows his inner space matters the most (same with Graham and his sandwich), but what was the point of him and the moths? No explanations for any of that stuff. We could have had some creepy, low-budget Scandinavian horror just with those elements, but no we have to some mirror universe that holds the fabric of time and space together. For what? I don't mind the Hypnotoad or even that it looked cheap (I think it was intentional anyway), but that 3-4 minutes is all people are taking away from this.
Maybe I have expectations that are too high. I don't expect to like every episode, or hate every episode either. I just feel that there is more potential here that could have been used better and ideas forced in for little reason. And that really sums up the season as a whole for me.
