A good storyline, then a cliffhanger
- Doctor Who: New Series 9: Vol.1 review by AB
The drawback to this disc is that there are only 3 episodes on it, the first 2 are parts 1 &2 of a story, the third is the first half of a 2-parter, so you get the full onslaught of one but only a skirmish with the other. I loved the first scenes (ie pre-title music) of the first story, introducing a character that I defy anyone to have predicted and which leads to some quite touching scenes later on. The interaction of the storyline with Missy (with or without Peter Capaldi) is great fun and the pair of them with Scots accents bringing out the humour of the situations is well worth the watch!
