Peter Capaldi as the Doctor: S9 E9 Sleep no More

Sum­mary: The Dust is com­ing to get you

Writ­ing: Mark Gatiss proves that even the best pitch­ers will have a bad inning. A lot of peo­ple hated the “found footage” bit but that wouldn’t have been an issue if the entire story didn’t suck so bad.

Act­ing: They say that a bad actor can ruin a good script but a good actor can’t save a bad one. This episode is liv­ing proof that this axiom is com­pletely true.

Mem­o­rable Moments: Make sure you remem­ber not to under any cir­cum­stances show this to any per­son you want to intro­duce to the series.

Doc­tor Who Flash­backs: Fear Her, because this one is even worse which takes some effort. This episode will give you flash­backs, none of them good.

Odd­i­ties: n/​a

Pet Peeves: How can you have a pet peeve when the entire show both­ers you?
