The Little Grey Cells

Was tonight’s episode of Doctor Who more to your taste than Little Mix, or is the kind of episode that you wish to knock? Wood you, er, that is, would you recommend this episode more than you’d recommend living in the house featured in tonight’s episode? Does David Suchet’s appearance in tonight’s episode of Doctor Who make up for the lack of Joan Hickson, Jeremy Brett, John Thaw and Ian Carmichael in past episodes as well as a nice-but-not-as-substantial-as-one-would like appearance by Roy Marsden in Smith and Jones? Do you think it is K9 in the vault playing the piano and eating all that food? If not him, how about Erato, the Creature from the Pit?

Okay, those questions may have got sillier as they went on, but this episode did not. Tell us what you thought of it in the comments section below. And think twice before you step on that next insect with your foot…..


I enjoyed it on a first viewing as it was very moody, very creepy, and the villain was excellent.

It also managed to continue Who’s superb inclusion of humour, in particular the Doctor making himself the unwanted guest.

I worry it may have a few logical flaws that might nag at me in future viewings.

I enjoyed this very much when I first viewed. The villain was very good.
