“Tell me a joke before you leave.”
Space Zombies, I’m not a big fan of zombie movie or even zombie television shows so when I saw the trailer for Oxygen I was a bit hesitant if I would like this particular story at all. Well once I finished watching “Oxygen” that was not the case at all. I really enjoyed it but not necessarily for the zombies; luckily they were not featured much, but for the overall message and what happened at the end.
What I really liked is how vulnerable The Doctor is even before he loses his eye sight while saving Bill from suffocating in space. He loses his sonic screwdriver early on and has to resort to using his wits to get out of the situation he is in and to save all the people that are left. I really like it when the writer eliminates the sonic screwdriver from the story as I feel it is used to much and often is used as the solution to the problem. But so far in this new series it has been used in limited capacity and that The Doctor has to use his brain just like he did in the Classic Series.
Five stories in and I’m still loving The Doctor and Bill relationship. It reminds me of The Doctor and Ace at the end of the Classic Series. It is really good pairing and the chemistry between Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie is brilliant. Plus the writing so far this series has been perfect also as that has helped in in the development in their relationship. Let’s hope Moffat doesn’t screw it up later in the series.
