The Angel in the Attic, By Brendan Sheppard, is one of favourites throughout this who universe, the inspirational work connecting an old Gothic horror like house at the nigh of Christmas with the un-holy angels, creates a sinister and creepy story. Characters involved ads to common likeness of a tales similar to this; a mixed combination of personalities is much to be desired in any adventures. Production on this story couldn’t be better, the scenery, music and acting dialogue contributes to such a masterpiece, and it makes us wish Sylvester McCoy continued into the 90s. Many aspects of the weeping angels are remembered from iconic episodes 2007 ‘Blink’, 2010 ‘The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone’ and 2012 ‘The Angles take Manhattan, if he saw this Steven Moffatt would be jealous. This 2 part adventure sees the birth and death of the Weeping Angels and the terror of a Traditional House.

I really enjoyed the series two episode ‘The Dalek Trap’ for a handful of reasons, firstly I have toyed with the idea of Daleks being slaves in some of my own stories. It was really nice to see someone else who had done the same! The Daleks are a great threat and to see them being ordered by a being not as superior was very interesting; I also liked how the Sea Devils prop were used. Domino was a lot more interesting in this episode the way how he set that Dalek free and inadvertently put himself and the Doctor at risk. Also that reveal was very exciting! Aaron J. Climas crafted what I think is one of the best in the series, it may not tie into the Nexus arc as much but that doesn’t matter. A very strong episode, easily one of the best. Four out of five!
