Review

A welcome rerun of two delirious Matt Smith episodes, penned by Steven Moffat and being shown back to back – which is a relief because in 2011 there was a summer-long gap between them, staggering the disclosure of River Song’s long-guarded secrets.

A Good Man Goes to War sees Rory turn hero to rescue Amy and their baby, mustering a Magnificent Seven-style posse that includes a lesbian Silurian and her Victorian maid. Let’s Kill Hitler is absurd fun, as our heroes tumble into Berlin and bung the Führer in a cupboard. River (Alex Kingston) is hilarious, stalling Nazi soldiers with: “Well, I was on my way to this gay gypsy bar mitzvah for the disabled…”

Summary

Amy is kidnapped and in her cell in Stormcage, River Song reluctantly acknowledges the approach of the Battle of Demons Run, the conflict that will see the Doctor face his darkest hour. Meanwhile, the Time Lord races across galaxies to gather his allies for a rescue mission, unaware that he is straying into a carefully concealed trap. Starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Alex Kingston.
