What Did You Think of The Tsuranga Conundrum?

Now that the fifth episode of series 11 has aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected.

“Risk to life: absolute.”

Injured and stranded in the wilds of a far-flung galaxy, The Doctor, Yaz, Graham and Ryan must band together with a group of strangers to survive against one of the universe’s most deadly — and unusual — creatures.

    It was a weird episode, not as strong as the previous 4 but nonetheless enjoyed it.

    I didn’t like the music in this episode, liked the music in other episode’s mind.
    Actually didn’t like anything in this episode apart from the science CERN gets a mention:)

    Just to be clear, I agree it was this series Forest of the night.

    I didn’t hate or love it. It was just a bit meh if that makes sense. Every series has a couple of iffy episodes and this was definatly one of them. I just thought it could have been so much more. I bet the younger viewers loved it though

    Very bizarre. I wasn’t sure what tone they were going for. I certainly would’ve felt more threat if the Pting didn’t look (and move) like a mix between the Crazy Frog and Stitch.

    Set design was quite distinctive and clinical feeling which I liked though – Far more memorable than recent ‘Base Under Siege’ sets. I also loved the Doctor’s speech about the particle accelerator.

    Interesting how they didn’t get to the Tardis at the end, although part of me wonders why you’d have them find the Tardis if they’re just going to loose it and then find it again. It could potentially undermine ‘The Ghost Monument’, depending on how them finding the Tardis again will be handled.

    I agree, although I did hate it.

    It does look interesting, another historical episode. Hope it doesn’t focus on how bad Britain acted back then. Don’t need another peachy episode.

    I agree fully. The series has been great apart from this.

    I actually dont know where to start. It wasn’t that I hated it. But I didn’t love it either. The first dud of the series for me. If that Pting thing had been a bit bigger and more menacing it would have added an extra dimension to it. But it was a sci fi episode that’s for certain. It was this series Forest of the night or The Long Game for me.
    On the plus side next week’s looks much much better.

    Just awful, I’ve only liked one episode this series and it wasn’t one that chibnall wrote. I really don’t think he is qualified to be head writer having only written 4 episodes prior to this series, and they all had the same structure (we have to beat the time limit or we are doooomed)

    Anonymous, I don’t want him to stop watching, I quite like reading his opinions on the series, and that what it is an opinion.

    I have to say I was really bored with this episode, I liked the premise of the episode but the execution was lacklustre. I’m still on the fence of Jodie, for me it felt like she was trying really hard to be a combination of Matt and Tennant, but not working well for her, the compaions felt unneeded in this story, I liked the side characters even though there was not point of the android, and pregnant guy, in opinion was only there to say use protection, but if you don’t just stay with your child, animations and effects for this episode was done, but the alien felt like a copy of a Ben 10 alien called upchuck, who also can east a lot. Overall, this was lacklustre for me and has me still look for a story from chibnall, that has me intrigued and wanting to see more.

    4.5/10

    All I’m saying is that I won’t get those 50 minutes of my life back and will try and look forward to next week.

    I have been a Doctor Who fan for YEARS, apart from when it was the truly awful Colin Baker. I like Jody Whittaker, I like the way it’s staged, liked the first episode… but the plot of the spiders one last week was so full of holes it was ludicrous. The episode with Rory and Amy in the hotel was terrifying, but this was just a few big spiders and then they “humanely” managed to shut them all (yes, every single one) in a kitchen (to starve to death?) and that was that. And this week’s was just boring with a ludicrous man-having-a-baby bit in it. They need a new writer. All poor Jody Whittaker does is run about.

    I have to admit i have loved this series but this episode was a let down. The characters were not relateable and the story was very dull and i felt myself zoning out. However i do feel that the next episode looks very promising and i hope this is just a blip in the new series
