Doctor Who 8.10 "In the Forest of the Night"
This was the occasional but inevitable environmental-message-seemingly-written-by-a-third-grader episode. Nothing makes sense and everything is simply filler for the last minute revelation that “the trees are magic and want to save us oh why can’t we treat them better!” Inexplicably, even the missing sister is inexplicably returned by the trees.
One must hope that the two-part finale delivers on all the hype the series has been setting up. Sometimes it has been the only thing bringing us back each week. And Capaldi deserves better.
