The latest episode of Doctor Who was a real stinker. There was nothing to praise about it - the writing was formulaic and trite where it wasn't self contradictory, the science was awful, and the morals imparted were repellant.

Th worst part, I think, was the criticism that Clara yelled at the Doctor at the end. It's implied that he knew (before he left the women to make their decision) how it wouild end - that there really was no problem, but he deliberately kept that a secret to -what? I don't understand why. And then she tears into him, not because he concealed vital information, but because he didn't take control and tell them exactly what to do. As opposed to being angry that he left them without the vital information that they needed. Combined with the whole nosensicle anti-abortion parable, it came off as an incredible disturbing rant against women making choices for themselves. Gah.

I haven't been enjoying the latest series as much as I'd hoped, and this hideous episode has just confirmed that for me. I just don't think Doctor Who is being written with people like me in mind any more.

Or anyone who understands the concept of logic, really.
