N080 The Almost People

Browse New Who reviews


The Doctor finally learns how to heal people and we get one of the greatest cliffhangers of all time

Our heroic protagonists are still at a medieval monastery in the 22nd Century where a band of contractors have been digging for super-potent subterranean acid.

But now The Gangers are after them, and to protect themselves from said gangers, they use and control Rory, a rubbery gloop, fully equipped with memories, emotions and clothing.

And then the mother of all cliffhangers puts the last few episodes in a whole new viewfinder.

Who’s real? Who’s plastic? Don’t worry. The Doctor will tell you.
