Critic Reviews for Fugitive of the Judoon

I certainly wasn't prepared for "Fugitive Of The Judoon" to rival "The Name Of The Doctor" and "The Day Of The Doctor" in terms of sheer number of game-changing reveals.

This was Doctor Who at its most psychedelic and awesome.

The search for the fugitive is intense and Jo Martin and Neil Stuke, as Ruth and Lee, play their parts well as the mystery unravels.

A story dominated by its shocking reveal, and thanks to that it has created a genuine buzz around the show again. Not a 5-star classic, but worth watching spoiler-free.

Chibnall gave the show a bit of a kick this week, and with a bit of something old, something new, something buried and something blue, delivered some genuine shocks and thrills with 'Fugitive of the Judoon'.

For those of us who thought that "Fugitive of the Judoon" was going to be a fairly standard (meaning: forgettable) midseason Doctor Who episode featuring the return of a nostalgic psuedo-villain, well. Boy, where we wrong.

We'll try to hold off absolute judgement until we've seen everything play out, then, but for now, we're happy to say we're more excited about what's to come in Doctor Who than we have been for a while.

An ambitious, tantalising episode which is far more fun and interesting than anything the show has done recently - even if the plot, by the end, doesn't amount to all that much.

It's very clear there are a lot more mysteries left to uncover... But one thing can be certain, in this sea of Time Lords, old friends, and new mysteries: it's exciting as all heck to watch it unfold.

It's the Chibnall era's most ambitious episode yet - finally, there's a sense that Doctor Who once again has a showrunner with big ideas and a story they want to tell

Doctor Who has been firing on all cylinders this season after a lackluster season 11, and the latest episode "Fugitive of the Judoon" was the most explosive yet.

Frankly, it's so much fun and so full of fan-service that I've no idea how the season 12 finale can top it. Or if it even should.
