First aired: 2013
If you look across my blog you will see that the Doctor has faced various forms of vampires over the years. But as for the new incarnation of the Doctor (Matt Smith) – I have to admit I hadn’t been paying attention, I had become bored with the series, yearned for the halcyon days of Tom Baker and generally just gave it a miss.
When this episode aired I was contacted by a friend to say it was a vampire episode – and it is, of sorts, and so it was onto iPlayer and thrust back into the series.
|Matt Smith as the Doctor|
|The Queen of Years|
|The Mummy awakens|
|Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara|
A clever ending to the adventure, that perhaps doesn’t stand up to full scrutiny, and the episode was fun enough but perhaps not fun enough to keep me watching the rest of the series. 5.5 out of 10. The episode's imdb page is here.
