  • Over shadowed by last 2 seasons meet the famous , Cliche witches and a similarity to a DWM comic strip let down what was a great emotional journey for martha and the doctor.

    yes, shakespeare would b an excellent travelling companian
    yes,martha and the Dr scenes were exquisite and heart breakingly funny

    now the rest was meh!

    A recent DWM cartoon script had Robert Greene, Wills most vocal critic being used by evil aliens siphoning his hatred as a weapon. A plot with depth, shakespeare cod, a wet fish. sorry but still entertaining but a little hollow. The main problem was the witches, they had no depth,just cackling hags with no agenda just being bad.

    On a plus point David Tenants best performance and Martha will make us all say Rose who soon. Style over substance Could have an excellent 2 parter to allow the witches more depth
