Doctor Who Series 8, Episode 11: Dark Water

Doctor Who - Dark Water

stars45

So, here we are - the penultimate episode of Peter Capaldi’s first foray as ‘The Doctor’.

This episode, entitled ‘Dark Water’ was a two-parter and brought back the Cybermen to a contemporary London. Being a two-parter, the pace of the story was a lot slower, but typically for a Steven Moffat script, it was tight, full of in-jokes and easily played on our inner-most fears. Not the scariest of episodes (try episode 4, Listen for a REALLY goose-bumpy experience), but still very watchable.

Lots of unknowns came together, and at last, we know who ‘Missie/Misi/Missie is - but unusually for an SM script, it wasn’t difficult to deduce!

All-in-all, an enjoyable episode, that’ll lead us nicely into the season finale next week (on earlier at 8pm, as it runs for an hour)
