It’s an old Po­lice Box!” And so it is. The ques­tion is: where is it? Last week’s open­ing episode ended with the Doc­tor (Jodie Whit­taker) and her new chums Gra­ham (Bradley Walsh), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Yas­min (Mandip Gill) dumped un­ex­pect­edly into deep space on the trail of the miss­ing blue box. Tonight’s fairly ex­cel­lent lit­tle ad­ven­ture picks up ex­actly where we left off, as the hu­man trio find them­selves vis­it­ing an alien planet for the first time. But it’s a very des­o­late place, and there are dan­gers lurk­ing ev­ery­where (in­clud­ing some mon­sters that might have given MR James the vapours). Good stuff, with hints of big­ger mys­ter­ies to come, Whit­taker ef­fort­lessly in her stride, Bradley Walsh be­ing fan­tas­tic, and some lovely miss­ing-Tardis ac­tion.
