“…But arrogance can trip you up.”

We barely got four days’ rest (if you can call flailing about on social media “rest”) before we’re walloped again with new Doctor Who episode content. Everything we thought we knew was suspect, and everything we hoped to get some answer to was met with further questions. Remember that delightful little adage, “be careful what you wish for”?

Chris Chibnall doubles down on the intensity for the conclusion of his Series 12 opening story, and it definitely takes its toll on us as viewers. Some things thrill, others shock, and if we’re being completely honest, some things outright offend. A breakneck pace has been established for this season for certain, and we really don’t know if it can be maintained. We’re not taking our eyes off the screen for a moment, though.
