After the high concept shenanigans of last week’s episode, this week’s episode of Doctor Who was a seemingly straight forward affair; part ghost story, part famous-historical-figure episode.
As the episode went on, however, it became clear that maybe it wasn’t as straight forward as it first seemed.

Team TARDIS are split up this week, as The Doc drops off the group for a return trip to Sheffield. And this episode has what you’ve come to expect from Doctor Who; science fiction nonsense, spectacle, aliens and monsters (some of the best we’ve had in a while too). But it’s far more concerned with the well-being of the companions, something the show all too rarely touches upon. And we discover that when these guys aren’t battling intergalactic threats, they’re fighting their own demons back home.

Doctor Who returned in the New Year and was surprisingly good. Sure it had the usual wonkiness that is now part and parcel of the show, but it was entertaining – with a last-minute twist that took it to the next level. That meant, for the first time in ages, I was really excited for this episode. And it managed to be even better than I expected. Is the show back on top?

Doctor Who is back with a bang! After a disappointing last season (but a fantastic Jodie Whittaker performance) the show returns with all the fantastic elements of the previous season (Whittaker, a higher budget, great scripts, brilliant music, Bradley Walsh) and seemingly sets a course to correct what the last season lacked. There’s more stuff for Yaz to do, more variety and – most importantly – more classic Who stuff.

The Daleks are back! Or at least one gross super Dalek is. This New Year’s special is surprisingly solid, with great performances and a fun story. Hopefully this will end the often-dreadful Christmas specials for good.

It’s finale time! And with the promise of guest star Mark Addy, this is primed to be a good episode.
Sadly, it struggles under the weight of all it’s ideas and consequently is a bit of a mess, albeit an entertaining one.

I can see why so little was revealed about this episode ahead of time. Go in blind because it is a wonderfully ludicrous and bizarre bit of science fiction.

This episode is tackling a lot of different issues, taking swipes at Amazon, technology, and those risky robots stealing our jobs. But it struggles a little to keep these plates spinning, in an otherwise exciting adventure.

Of all the episodes of Chris Chibnall’s newly re-vamped Doctor Who, it’s the latest episode – the Chibnall penned ‘The Tsuranga Conundrum’ – that best highlights the strengths and weaknesses he has as a showrunner and writer.
