Skaro's: Doctor Who Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Review
Well...in the words of PCJ "This writer must of been of been on drugs while writing" Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. It is truly a unique episode, one which I don't feel we will ever have anything like again. I must say however it doesn't rate in my top 10 episodes of Doctor Who, never-the less it's a good episode to watch.
The episode starts off simularly to episode 1 - collecting companions. With episode 1 the Daleks did it, episode 2, the Doctor has done it...but this time there is more than just the Ponds! They are joined by the beautiful and wonderful Queen Nefertiti of Egypt and Riddell, a bounty hunter. It adds a sense of adventure, like we are seeing something new from a new persons eyes but yet at the same time we have the Ponds (and Brian!).
Murray Gold's music wasn't as noticable in this episode, it did mainly focus on the aspects of 'I am the Doctor' which I must say is starting to get irritable to my ears! Other than that there was a few great music tracks within the episode to which I can officially say I have fallen in love with (which will follow later in the week as unreleased music). Also the SFX in the episode was good, the aspect to detail was amazing (they got the same Silurian Voice announcer to do the computer voice if you noticed). Thumbs up to Murray and the BBC Orchestra for this episodes music.
Overall though I cut this review short, it was much longer originally but I babbled and I cut it down to this...which I will the funny review of all my reviews, as overall that is the word describes the episode, "funny". I'd give it 7/10.
Oh...and to repeat, what ever Chibnall takes, I want some!
