This week’s episode of Doctor Who saw the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and companion Bill (Pearl Mackie) head back in time to 1814’s great frost fair on the frozen river Thames, and viewers were loving the period setting.
Absolutely loved #DoctorWho Thin Ice represented a more real Victorian setting, they really went over & above with that, very well done!
Whoever thought we’d be applauding Doctor Who for killing off a child before 8pm? What strange people we are.
Anyway, the whole thing was building up to two hugely satisfying moments, which set the internet alight. Moment 1 – the Doctor punching out the lights of baddie Lord Sutcliffe (Nicholas Burns), who was feeding people to the creature AND had a sideline in racism.
"Thin Ice" contains the most satisfying punch thrown in the history of #DoctorWho.
In the end the Doctor and Bill saved the day, some lovable street urchins were rehomed and everything worked out just fine (except for Lord Sutcliffe) – and fans were happy to see the series continue in its purple patch of great episodes.
