We take a look at a pair of two-parters that are all about war, but first we consider all we can from the recently released preview clip for the upcoming Christmas special, "Twice Upon A Time." Overall, we really like what we see from Mark Gatiss and David Bradley, and it goes without saying we're going to be good with pretty much anything Peter Capaldi does at this point. Then, to business! The Sontaran two-parter has some good things going for it, but it has maybe the worst, most obnoxious guest character in the entire new series, and it's all so dumbfoundingly superficial in its ideas about war. That's not a problem the Zygon two-parter has, which maybe isn't quite as clever as it seems to think it is but does do a bunch of legitimately incredible things... including that speech. Yes, Alasdair has thoughts on that speech. And then join us next week for a look at Clara and Rigsy in "Flatline" and "Face The Raven"!
