I thought Zygons
was a little too on the nose for me. The Doctor seems to be lacking the flippant wit and off-kilter moments present in the other episodes of Season 13.
Despite the poor FX I did like the cheeky idea of the Zygons co-opting the Loch Ness Monster in their schemes. The organic technology was unusual and probably even moreso back when this would've aired.
Part of the problem might be I don't have any nostalgia for this one, I didn't see it when I was younger and I think as a kid this would've been a lot of fun with the rubber suits, space ships and dinosaurs. It's not bad per se, I just didn't find it connected with me as much as I expected.
Not going to say much about Pyramids of Mars
as that is one of the more familiar stories both to the public at large and to myself but I did want to say that, with apologies to Matt Smith, Namin rocks that fez.
