Man, I’m doing great with my commitment to blog daily.
In my defense, I’ve been sick. Also, I’m lazy.
This story has really gotten a bit dull. It should have been only a four parter instead of one of the strange five part stories. That said, there are some fun moments, like the Doctor nearly blowing himself up, and the sonic screwdriver putting in a major early appearance.
There’s also plenty of action, which is quite welcome after last episode’s lengthy and annoying ethical debate. Additionally, lots of quarks get blown up, which is fine, given how basically non-threatening and boring they are.
All in all a fairly lackluster conclusion to a story with a lot of potential, which really kind of sucked.
