  • Interesting but slow

    This was a decent episode but hardly great. Growing up during the '60s nuclear stand off I could relate more with this than the younger audience. But as with another review while the premise was interesting the plot plodded along and some parts really weren't too coherent. I don't think it gave either the Doctor or Clara a great vehicle for a great performance and maybe the best performance was from the Russian professor. Not being a Doctor Who expert I do believe these Martian Ice Warriors are a new creation in the Who universe? And the ending reminded me of a couple of scifi movies such as Close Encounters. I'm still hoping for a stand out episode soon rather than just fairly good.
