The Genius Twins are the least of Bill’s and Doc’s worries in this highly divisive episode
Life was tranquil in The Shire 507, for indeed it had always been so, as far back as people could remember, apart from the nightly scarecrow attacks on Horny Miss Hazran’s Home for Horrible Herberts. Then to top it all off a Mondasian Cyberman shoots up through the floor carrying what appears to be a deceased Time Lord as a sick joke.
Back on the flashback deck, Missy and The Master have tied The Doctor to a chair and are torturing him into a volcanic state. They’ve turned the city into a metropolis of Cyber-foundries, but as they’re high-fiving each other and sparks are flying between them, Doc seizes his chance to make them all targets for Cyber-conversion.
Operation Exodus now proceeds on two floors and in two time zones, as ever-more futuristic Cybers ascend from the foundries and Doc, Bill and Nardole make preparations for an endless string of farewells and an inevitable ascent of their own. Can Bill retain her humanity? Will Nardole bump tankards with Horny Miss Hazran? Will Doc regenerate all over everyone?
