Graffiti Monsters   Leave a comment

‘Flatline’ is a treat.

It has everything that makes Doctor Who great: it’s funny, it’s scary, there’s a serious undercurrent to the madness, and it is completely barking mad. Shrinking TARDIS! Two-dimensional murders! “2-Dis!” Clara begins to see the cost of lying – and its value. Left on her own she’s the Doctor at his best, and her cleverness makes it possible for him to save the day as only he can.

Both Capaldi and Coleman are strong in this story. Rigsy is a delight, and I’m so glad he’ll be returning. The monsters are scary, and beautifully rendered, and street art saves the day.

Another excellent entry by Jamie Mathieson. I wish we were getting more of him in S9.
