Synopsis

“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise...”



In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator's magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.



And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.

But the meat of this episode lies in the humor created when the Doctor brings together not only Rory and Amy for the outing, but also Rory's father, Brian Williams (Mark Williams, also Harry Potter), Queen Nefertiti (Riann Steele, Holby City) from ancient Egypt, and John Riddell (Rupert Graves, b...

The pre-credits sequence for Dinosaurs on a Spaceship screamed “romp” and this, by and large, is just what the viewers got.

In fact, at times it feels like Doctor Who cubed, or Doctor Who to the power of three, in that Chibnall seems to have found a new way of ‘telling’ Doctor Who.

As a child whose twin obsessions were dinosaurs and Doctor Who, it always rather rankled that the most disappointing elements of the otherwise excellent Invasion of the Dinosaurs were the eponymous monsters.

California Literary Review

I don’t fully accept that there was someone looking at the angels all the time – on the roof there were moments when Rory and Amy were looking at each other exclusively, or Amy was looking at Rory while he looked up at the sky.

In fact, I kinda thought the episode was gonna go differently, because if I had been the Doctor at that moment, my first thought would have been (in less brilliant vernacular than the Doctor, of course): “OK… Silurian ship, full of dinosaurs… the engine is an entire ocean… rest of the ship’s ful...

From sitting in the TARDIS for four straight days just because the Doctor said to, to making daily video diaries (“Brian’s Log”) about the nothing happening with the cube, to the strange and hilarious moment when Rory finds him in the hospital, apparently contemplating an IV bag, Brian is a weird...

When the astronaut shoots the Doctor in the very first episode of the series, one of the best scenes ever produced, the Doctor very clearly starts to regenerate and then gets shot again before he can, killing him permanently.

Williams is apparently doing a Welsh accent (although I think there was some Scottish there at one point, and there’s definitely unadulterated Williams in one scene) but perhaps secretly this is so the new adventures of Chunky Gilmour aren’t spoiled!

(Though how will Brian react if/when the Doctor tells him the news?) Now we're going to deal with another "The Doctor can never travel alone" story, which raises the question of why River isn't willing to at least hang out with her husband until a new companion turns up.

(As I noted back in the Christmas episode, my default is to trust Moffat.) I'm curious how everyone else is feeling about the show right now.

Badass Digest

A confident mix of CGI and animatronics, the dinosaurs don't technically get to do much in the story – a fun but ultimately unnecessary scene with Amy and Rydell fending off raptors is the closest it comes to Jurassic Park action – but they look fantastic.
