Doctor Who – Series 11, Episode 8 – ‘The Witchfinders’

Reading time: < 1 minutes...

Opening scenes looked good – another serious story-line – and a Witch is about to be dunked!
Thumbs up
6.38: One dead ‘un and the Doctor’s now a Witchfinder General.

6.41: King James makes an appearance – and the pantomime season has arrived early – Oh dear!
Sad smile
6.44: Scary! What was that? – cue ‘Monster-of-the-Week’

6.52: Even more scary! It’s ‘the Witch’

6.53: Maybe not!

6.59: The Doctor is a Witch (allegedly!)

7.08: Getting pretty tense now!

7.09: Oh, SHE’s the Witch

7.10: The (other) Monster-of-the-Week appears!

7.12: “Ready for Battle?”

7.16: Monster’s sorted…

Hmmmm, it started well, but then it all became a bit predictable – and all that was missing with Alan Cummings’ portrayal of King James was him twirling his moustache!
Nope, didn’t work for me!
Sad smile
