And so our heroes end up on a rocket…into space!
There are some interesting visuals during this episode, particularly during the scenes where the space mission is being launched. I quite liked the use of projections and overlays, and the one that looked quite a bit like a QR code amused me.
The story continues along at a crisp pace, as our characters try to get back to the Moon so they can get the T-mat system back up and going. The Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe charm their way into a rocket, but while they’re en route, the T-Mat system “mysteriously” comes back online. It is, of course, an Ice Warrior trap.
If I have to complain about something, it’s the way the rocket launch, and mission to the Moon, are handled. I mean, this was 1969, yeah? The year we actually went to the freakin’ Moon. Real space missions were happening, they could have made this all just look a tiny bit more convincing.
But that aside, a generally good part of a generally good story!
