Cold Blood

I'm all for referencing the old shows, but what's the point of reviving "classic" monsters when they're neither scary nor even particularly interesting? Poor old Chibnall drew the short straw I think.  If it had been me I'd have gone, "Oh no, not Silurians! Can't you give them to Gatiss?"

It was a very preachy episode. The Doctor was very preachy. I don't mind stories having morals, but I prefer them not to be heavily underlined and followed by exclamation marks.

Who is often stupid and crass and formulaic but it's very rarely as dull as this.

But I did like the ending.
