It’s that time of the week again, folks. I was out last night, so only caught Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS this afternoon.
In a nutshell: A space salvage crew snares the TARDIS, Clara gets lost somewhere inside, and The Doctor tricks the salvage guys into helping him find her. Oh, and there are weird scorched space-zombies lurking in the bowels of the time machine…
My take: It’s a massive improvement on the recent run of episodes. They could have invested a little more time exploring the TARDIS – I wasn’t a big fan of the endlessly running through the corridors. And once again criticism for Clara – when lost in the depths of a seemingly infinite time machine after a violent blast knocks you out, wouldn’t you be a little panicky about where your travelling companion was? Clara simply wandered off.
And even when she found out the truth of The Doctor’s name…no reaction. And even when she found out what the monsters REALLY were – she didn’t seem all that devastated either.
Still, a nice nostalgic trip through the TARDIS. I’m just not entirely sure if that Big Friendly Button was an ironic touch (especially given the overuse of the Sonic Screwdriver lately) or if it was a genuinely lame way to reset everything at the end of the episode.
Let’s chat it out – what was your take on the latest Doctor Who episode?
