Fling the Pt­ing, Chris

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

FIVE episodes in and it’s clear writer Chris Chib­nall, in­set, is a big­ger threat to Doc­tor Who than the Master ever was.

His lat­est fi­asco fea­tured ab­surd bad­die the Pt­ing

– a cute but ma­lig­nant, oddly-shaped be­ing that eats ev­ery­thing...so part Pac-Man, part Gemma Collins.

There was also a preg­nant bloke. Yawn. Red Dwarf did that in 1988. What box-tick­ing de­light will Chib­nall serve up for the Doc next? Polyamorou­s Daleks per­haps? Some cross-dress­ing Cy­ber­men? Odds on it won’t be a de­cent plot. Still, I sup­pose pt­ings can only get bet­ter.

DAFT Who mon­ster the Pt­ing could eat any­thing, but the script was still too hard to swal­low.
