No-one could accuse the writers of Doctor Who of patronising their audience! Any episode that suggests Googling ‘Bootstrap Paradox’ (try looking here) in its opening scene is certainly NOT underestimating the intelligence of Whovians!!
So, in short, tonight’s adventure: Before the Flood, penned once again by Toby Whithouse, was one to get you thinking. It was a complex plot of the sort that demanded that any loo-breaks were taken before the episode began, for fear of missing an important development.
Although I enjoyed it, I can’t help thinking whether the storylines are getting TOO complex??
