Whittaker's second episode shows the Doctor up to her usual tricks, fending off alien attacks while rescuing humans, and reunites us all with the TARDIS, ready for more fun-packed adventures travelling back to Earth in the episodes to come.

A story you'll forget, then in a decade or so it'll come up and you'll look into it and go "oh yeah! That one!" because it's not good or bad enough to be memorable...

The dynamic of the new series became a little more concrete this episode by showing how the best friend gang is going to function.

Resplendent in corals, golds, and warm tones, watching Jodie Whittaker's Doctor (wo)man the controls was a heartbursting moment, a reminder of how important this Doctor truly is.

A simple mystery to solve, a quest for knowledge-it's pure Doctor Who, at its core. If that's the sort of thing this new era of the show wants to chase, by all means: hop in that shiny new TARDIS and chase away.

But what is interesting is that "The Ghost Monument" manages to take a concept that's already been done dozens of times with other people and jazz it up into something that feels like we haven't seen it before. Or at least, not entirely.
