So, the 2016 Christmas Doctor Who story, The Return of Doctor Mysterio has been aired for press; I quite liked the Telegraph’s first look review. With the day itself approaching, here are my thoughts about the episode (and I haven’t seen it)…
Superheroes in Doctor Who
Many fans have been vocal about this based on some clips, prejudice about Moffat and outrage at the idea of costumed superheroes. While I get where they are coming from, I have to point out the show is already packed with aliens, robots, advanced tech, psychic powers and much else. Like many fans I baulk at going as far as magic, and do feel the show has transgressed, but a guy in a costume with super-tech giving the effect of flight / strength can work for me.
Superheroes can be deus ex machina cop-outs, but let’s just watch and find out?
