When I saw the title and guest stars for this one I knew it was going to be good. I mean Mr. Weasley, Filch , and Lestrade all in the same episode? Yes, please.
It starts off with the Doctor needing to get together a crack team of people to save a spaceship. For the Doctor that means a Queen, Game hunter and The Ponds. Rory’s dad (Mr Weasley) accidentally joins the party and seems to fit right in. Mostly. Mr. Weasley does a perfect job at being Rory’s dad. Just how I imagined him.
Once the band of misfits get aboard the spaceship that is in need of saving, they must unravel it’s secrets to do so. Now I’m not spoiling anything in saying that most of the secrets revolve around why there are dinosaurs on a spaceship. The Doctor’s reaction when they first find the dino’s is perfect.
As I watched I really started to connect with this Doctor. The episode allowed for us to see a bunch of different sides of him, from young and playful to dark and unforgiving. I’m really excited to see where the next episode takes us!
