This past week’s episode of Doctor Who – the third of the season – took us on a trip into the past and across the pond to Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, just a day before Rosa Park refuses to give up her seat on the bus and launches a movement. The Doctor and her companions are pulled there, of course, because there’s someone who wants to stop Rosa from doing this. Something about this moment starts something that our villain does not like and The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz must get all the pieces in place to make it happen. There were some mixed feelings, it seems, when it came to this episode but let’s jump in and find out what I thought.
In the second episode of Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the new Doctor in Doctor Who, the Doctor and her newest companions – Graham, Ryan and Yaz – end up stranded on a desolate planet – a planet literally called Desolation – with two others battling it out in a race across the universe for an immense amount of money. These two have to reach what is called the Ghost Monument in order to win and the Doctor and her companions tag along because, of course, the monument is none other than the TARDIS.
Today is the day, Whovians! It feels like it’s been so long and it has! Today we finally get back into the TARDIS – uh, sort of – and take off into a new adventure with Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, three new companions and a brand new show runner. This review is completely spoiler free so please enjoy. And if you want to talk spoilers with me, please do because I am SO excited!
