7X02 Dinosaurs On A Spaceship (Grading/Discussion) (SPOILERS!)




An unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction - unless the Doctor can save it, and its impossible cargo...... of dinosaurs. By his side a ragtag gang of adventurers; a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen and a surprised member of the Pond family. But little does the Doctor know there is someone else onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.
Looks like this could be a fun little escapist episode. Sit back and enjoy the dinosaurs!

Dinos on a Spaceship! Can't wait, now if the Doctor ACTUALLY does ride one like is depicted in the picture, this will get an instant A+ from me :P

Liked this a lot. More coherent ep then Asylum, did perfectly what it set out to. Loved the group, liked the drift between amy and the doc. Rory's dad having a cuppa while literally watching the world go by was great.

Hah! That was a fun 45 minutes.

Great to hear from Mitchell & Webb as the voices of the robots too.

Smart, fun, nonsense, and very well acted on all fronts - exactly as Doctor Who should be. A great episode for both Rory and Amy individually, too. I imagine that this will turn out to be one of the more quotable episodes.

Also, kudos to Matt Smith, whose motormouth of a Doctor seems to have had a ton of lines this episode.

Can see this being a proper marmite episode.

We watched it as a family with our little lad, we all loved it.

yes that was excellent if a little distracting at at times, also distracting was the fact I didnt really believe the Doctor, Rory and Rorys dad were riding the dinosaur. I suspect computer trickery.

It is nice to throw new characters into the mix,which continues to make you wonder why we continue to see Rory and Amy this series, its not like its anything new that a companion leaves. The fact they have each other is reason he can just leave them. Plus if he feels really bad he could just give them a K9, like he did Sarah Jane, I can just picture Amy with a Sonic Lipstick. Even if she is getting a little too self important, which is odd, as Amy seems to be drifting in life, whilst Rory seems more settle, which I guess was always the case, and always the down to the Doctors influence.

Not sure how I feel about the Doctor sending Solomon to his death, yeah he is a bad guy, but his death was needed for the plan to work, and the Doctor for all his childish humour in the episode, seems slightly off doing it. Maybe the thing about "I get you anything you want" sealed his fate.

Any enjoyable if mad, and not overly taxing 45 minutes.

Dinosaurs On A Spaceship - well that was hilarious. Great fun, lovely characters, nasty villain, proper "yippee-ki-ay motherfucker" conclusion... Would actually have been a better season opener, where casual viewers are concerned, I suspect. Wish they could have kept the triceratops as a companion - how cool would that have been?

Fun, fun fun!
It is just great to sit down on a Saturday evening and watch Doctor Who.
Dinosaurs, Egyptian Queen, camp robots and Arthur Weasley, what is not to like.

I found this episode to be fun, fun, fun.
Could not stop laughing throughout the episode, though I'm not sure about the end.

I gave it Average because Nefertiti was hot. Seemed like an excuse to use some dinosaur CGI - I suspect the episode title came first, followed by a very awkward plot.

And did the Doctor outright murder that guy or what? And quite gleefully, too.

I have no idea who Mitchell and Webb are, so maybe I took these quotes out of the humorous context that was intended... to me, the two robots were like something out of a children's cartoon or Sarah Jane. Or was that the intention? My 7 year old nephew loved them, but I just cringed as it made me realise that maybe I am getting a bit too old for this show.
