There are plenty of wonderful moments in The Eaters of Light
to delight fans both young and old. In an unusually lyrical script with shades of
McCoy’s popular season 26, playwright Rona Munro (of Survival fame) puts a
Doctor Who spin on the unsolved mysteries of the Pictish beast and the
disappearance of the Ninth Legion.
Meanwhile, in the background, Missy is watching on, ready to review the Doctor’s performance when he returns. She’s a rather harsh critic: “Is it really up to your bleeding hearts standard?” It looks like she'll be getting her chance next week to show him how it's done, but at least for this one, Moffat and co can relax. Missy aside, the reviews are largely positive this time around.
Ask Missy to provide six more unanswered questions and I doubt any of ours will overlap. So whilst we leave Missy to stew over why the Doctor didn’t arrive earlier to see the beast in full killer mode, or why Nardole is so eager to blend in with the locals,let's take a look at some of the questions fans are asking.
