Storyline

After a lengthy absence, the Doctor returns to Earth and scoops up up Amy and Rory for yet another adventure. He also manages somehow to include Rory's dad, Brian Williams. Those aren't the only travelers however as Queen Nefertiti and big-game hunter John Riddell are also on board. The TARDIS next reappears on board a large ship and the Doctor is delighted to find a cargo of prehistoric dinosaurs on board. Using the ship's computers, Amy determines that the ship's crew is nowhere to be found. There is someone on board however who has no intention of giving up his precious cargo to the Doctor or anyone else who might try to take it from him. Written by garykmcd

Not enjoyable, can see where Chris is bad
1 May 2019 | by hgwsavageSee all my reviews

This episode is written by Chris chinball, who was the showrunner for season 11. It's ironic how this is my least favourite episode probably ever, and season 11 is, in my opinion, trash.

It's just a mess. There is literally 6 characters including the doctor, compared to just two or even one in previous seasons.

Next, the doctor. He's just so messed up and cringe it's embarrassing, a complete miss - interpretation of one of my favourite doctors. I can see the rambling he does like Jodie.

Overall, just a hot, ''fun" episode
