Doctor Who – Series 12, Episode 3 – “Orphan 55”

Reading time: < 1 minute...

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

First class CGI together with the scariest monsters since the ‘Weeping Angels’, all supported by a plot line that moved at pace! Every actor gave it their all, and the production qualities were akin to a movie. ?

The Dregs

So, I’m not sure why this episode bored me rigid! I guess it all felt a bit preachy with ‘the big reveal’ message being linked to global warming. It all had the subtlety of a Dalek death-ray, informing us that the future of our planet is all down to us, the viewer. Stop it BBC, we can make up our own minds thanks! ?

With no further development of that significant story-arc briefly introduced last week, it meant that this was nothing more than a ‘monster-of-the-week’ story.

Verdict: Scary, but boring and preachy! ?

Update, Wednesday, 15th: The numbers are in! Just 4.19m viewers tuned-in for this episode! That’s low! ?
