Welcome to Who New and review, a podcast from the Galactic Network

'God save the Queen' has been scrawled on the surface of Mars. What are Victorians doing on the home of the Ice Warriors? And what will they find beneath the Martian soil?

The Good BitsAll those movie references

The Bad BitThe doctor's movie reference ‘frozen’

The whoniversal bit the design of the Victorian space suit.

The episode itself felt a pretty much a standalone piece of work, save for the return of Missy. It landed – after a pre-credits bit at NASA - the Doctor, Bill and Nardole land on Mars in 1881. Curiously, there’s a bunch of Victorian soldiers already there, complete with their stiff upper lips, their carry on chaps British accents, and a good dose of God Save The Queen. I think Mark Gatiss and the production team have comfortably exceeded expectations, though. It’s hard not to get the flavour of a contained old-style Doctor Who adventures from it, not least because it’s a clash of very British characters against an alien foe. What other show on the planet does that?
