But before I can get to that two-parter, I have to slog through this two-parter.
The first three episodes of this season form a rather loose, mostly thematic three-parter in order to introduce the audience to what they could expect from the series. The next two episodes, however, are a two-part conglomeration of things that people never want to see in Doctor Who again. Ever.
Be glad that the suits already ordered another season after “The End of the World” was broadcast, because this two-parter would have put the show back down the crapper.
|Which is pretty fitting, considering the main source of “humor” in this episode.|
