Today we begin a new story, where the Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe face up against the evil of…the Krotons!
Our heroes arrive on a strange alien world where the Hunger Games appear to be happening. Yeah, it’s that old trope of “people sending their youth to be sacrificed to the bad guys”. I hate it so.
Anyhow, they interrupt the sacrifice, one of the tributes dies, and the other one is left catatonic, and…well, I develop a certain sense of empathy with the latter.
This story is just not one of my favorites, and this episode is pretty dull. It should be exciting and interesting, and set up an entertaining story to come. But not so much. Instead it’s a bit of a yawn. Shame.
