Doctor Who "Cold War"
In the new incarnation of Doctor Who we don’t have serials, we have episodes that are generally self-contained, outside of a rare two-parter here and there. That would seem to indicate that there are no more episodes of pure “filler.” Unfortunately that is not the case. We still have episodes that don’t carry much story, let alone interesting ideas or themes. Some, like last week’s episode, hide their vacuity in dazzling special effects and makeup. Others excite the fans with call-backs to the old days in the form of old enemies.
At least “Cold War” was not as bad as last week’s story. But let’s get back to some great Who soon please!
