The Beast Below: First Reaction

Doctor Who - The Beast BelowWe’ll have a review of The Beast Below on Kasterborous later this weekend – but in the meantime, what did you think of the latest episode of Doctor Who?

Certainly the opening sequence of a very different world on board the Starship UK with all of the police state overtones gave the episode a feel not dissimilar to The Long Game (2005) and with a floating-in-space Amy Pond and the usual sharp dialogue from Steven Moffat, there was certainly a lot to amuse and carry the story along at a good pace.

The casting of Sophie Okonedo and Terrance Hardiman in key roles was inspired, although it might have been preferable to see more of Hardiman as he has a great presence.

Meanwhile Matt Smith was again excellent as the Doctor, especially later in the episode as he prepared to carry out a desperate solution and a lack of glamour from Karen Gillan gave this story a much needed grounding in the hard desperation of life in space.

All in all, a low-key follow up to The Eleventh Hour – given that we’ve got Daleks and Weeping Angels coming up in the next 2 weeks, that’s probably for the best!
