So the final half of the sixth series of the regenerated Doctor Who kicked off last night with “Let’s Kill Hitler”. Oh, but I did enjoy every single moment of it. Steven Moffat is such a brilliant and audacious writer, and the excellent actors have a field day with his lines.
Look, I don’t care that there were some probable plot holes – the Doctor should have known about River’s lipstick trick by now – I was still loving every single moment: the introduction of Mel, the growing-up sequences, the use of Hitler as a MacGuffin, the antibodies in the tesselrator channelling the Sirius Cybernetic Corporation of Douglas Adams, the redemption of Mel/River… It was a blast. Knocked the current sorry mess of Torchwood into a cocked hat.
