76% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos (TV Episode) Overall, the finale successfully concluded the unresolved themes of the season for the Doctor's companions, but lacked any new depth to the Doctor herself, and we'll have to wait until 2019 for more TARDIS adventures. - Film Inquiry EDIT

86% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Arachnids in the UK (TV Episode) Leaving us with loose ends in this way, the episode either has a bad ending as a result of lazy writing, or could have deeper implications, perhaps lacking closure in the same way we lack a resolution for real damage to our ecosystem. - Film Inquiry EDIT
