Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet, 1978 – ★★★½

A very imaginative story although somewhat let down by the special effects and the budget! Douglas Adams has a lot of fun here.

Doctor Who: The Invasion of Time, 1978 – ★

The first episode was intriguing. But then it was all downhill from there. Irritatingly nonsensical and made the TARDIS look like a community centre. I can see where Moffat got the idea of there being a swimming pool in the TARDIS, I just never thought I’d see a Sontaran trip over a deck chair. 

Embarrassing. And Leela deserved better.

The first half is a really interesting ethical dilemma and Gravity meets The Martian. But the ending ruins it all.

This is a difficult one to rate because it’s a very good serial, probably the best of the season, but it is incredible racist.

Behind Her Eyes, 2021 – ★★★

I’m really not sure what to rate this. 

It was very well made, I thought. A bit too long perhaps, but that worked to build tension. 

I knew there was going to be a big twist because Netflix have been tweeting about it so much. I’d have rather not known, because I spent a lot of time trying to guess the twist (and it’s not really something you can guess!) but I suppose I may not have persevered with it if I wasn’t looking forward to the ending (though what does that say about the pacing?). 

There are also some problematic elements about the ending, which others have explained quite well. 

I’m still unsure. I’m glad I watched it, it was a very interesting experience. I’m just not sure it was good.
