Doctor Who XXXIV(8).7: Kill the Moon

Did Lundvik say ‘What a prat’ as the Doctor left the Moon? While enjoying the highs and lows of Peter Capaldi’s interpretation of the Doctor’s character, his lack of empathy and possibly deliberate cruelty is very testing and hardly endears the Doctor and Doctor Who to an audience, or so I’d have thought. While I’m fascinated to see where the production team are going with this arc, their justification is questionable and Clara’s farewell dialogue to the Doctor suggests they know it. Kill the Moon convinces as drama, but I wonder whether it is the Doctor Who we, and BBC One on Saturdays, really want.
