This is an edit as this was posted in 2013 and it is now 2019. An unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction, unless the Doctor can save it, along with its impossible cargo… of dinosaurs! By his side are a ragtag gang of adventurers: a big game hunter, an Egyptian queen and a surprised member of the Pond family.
I like this episode. I think the only thing that didn’t work for me was the Mitchell and Webb-bots. I’m sure it sounded like a great idea on paper – pair of funny robots, lets get a comedy duo to do the voices! but it drags you out of the story and breaks the suspension of disbelief – they stop being funny robots, and start being Mitchell and Webb (who I like) playing funny robots.
The rest of the supporting cast in this one, however, are great; and it’s generally a good old romp which left me with a smile on my face. Exactly what you want for an episode 2.
I was not very fond of this episode. I believe that it is just sort of bland and the villain is kind of unnecessary. If I have nothing else to watch then I sometimes revisit it but it is not one of my favourites.
