Letâ€™s get serious people!
To elaborate â€“ this is it folks. Strap yourselves in for this adventure because itâ€™s fun, tongue in cheek and a fast, furious ride. If youâ€™ve read any interviews youâ€™ll know that this is probably what RTD might call his last chance for a â€˜light heartedâ€™ romp in the Whoniverse.

As much as I wanted to love this episode, I have to say, it simply wasnâ€™t as spectacular as I wanted it to be.
