Doctor Who

Doctor Who

By Manish Arora

A big standalone bank holiday action romp for all the family,

If the episode felt a tad throwaway, then maybe that’s what we needed after the brain-melting gloom of Eve of the Daleks

if that New Year’s Day special sometimes felt like a sweet echo from the Steven Moffat era with its baroque

puzzle box plotting, this one was much more inclusive

Doctor Who has paddled in pirate waters before, of course, with 2011’s Hugh Bonneville-starrer The Curse of the Black Spot

Of course, for all its piratey trimmings, this episode’s USP is the return, after 38 years, of the Sea Devils.
