Doctor Who – Series 10, Episode 5: ‘Oxygen’

Doctor Who - Series 10, Episode 4

I couldn’t watch this episode live as we were travelling back from Hull, so I watched it on Sunday.

After last week’s more traditional Who-storyline, designed to have us regularly inspecting the backs of our sofas, this one tapped into TV’s current obsession with the undead and featured a yarn based around zombies - but in space! ‘Fear the Walking Doctor’ anyone??!!

All-in-all, a pretty scary and tense episode (rather than just creepy and tense!) and an easily-followed storyline – thank goodness. It was good too, to see the Matt Lucas’s character Nardole getting a bit more air-time. I liked this one, but maybe not as much as last week’s yarn.
