An episode that raises fascinating questions about human nature and the legacy of Western imperialism.

At times, the script seemed to be straining for contemporary relevance. At others, it strained and wheezed with exposition. However, there was also plenty to like.

If 'Demons of the Punjab' was released in week 2 or 3, I would have given it a stellar review. However, we are over halfway through this series now, and I can't help but feel we are constantly being confronted by the same issues and plot-threads.

This story is painful because it's familiar-we're seeing it play out every day, and everywhere.
