"The Empress of Mars" gives fans an entertaining standalone breather between major arcs that makes the most of its leads' considerable chemistry.
This is the perfect conclusion for Godsacre; unlike his me, who made the trip for glory and riches, he was always just seeking a fresh start, and now he has one.
This had the feel of an old-fashioned Who romp, from the 'tache-twirling villain to the vintage monsters who were clearly just men in silly costumes. Loved those steampunk space suits, though.
Empress of Mars has so much going for it really. It's tightly written and directed, well cast, gorgeously designed, looks to the future while nodding at the past.
It's a shame that part of this season-which started so very strongly, and has lost its way a little in the middle a bit-had to be dedicated to that kind of thing.
This standalone story (scripted by series vet Mark Gatiss) gives Twelve and his gang a bit of a breather after the monk three-parter that preceded it, in what feels like a mostly satisfying if ultimately workmanlike tale.
While Empress Of Mars is no classic, I found it solid, and enjoyable, and nerdy.
"Empress" is a sleek tale of honor, loyalty, and redemption told through the filter of science-fiction mavericks.
If you loved Hidden Figures, then boy, do Doctor Who and Mark Gatiss have a story for you!
Doctor Who should be more than just a hangout show with the Doctor and his companion, but when the main pair are this good, it's hard for any episode with them in it to be genuinely bad.
Mark Gatiss can usually be counted on to write Doctor Who episodes that are reliably suspenseful but don't often stretch the show's boundaries. He does it again with this week's "Empress of Mars," a successful standalone adventure
