The Hungry Earth / Cold Blood:

Things I Liked : The timey-wimey stuff, Stephen Jones as the Silurian boss, the similarities to the Pertwee era (the bubble, the Silurians), it wasn’t as bad as I expected for Chris Chibnall.

Things I didn’t like : The new Silurians lost a lot of their unique-ness.

As I said, it felt like a Pertwee story, even down to the fact that it seemed a bit stretched out to fill two episodes. In 1970, we’d have said the same about the 7 episodes. I was worried that every Silurian story is basically the same, almost as though thats the only story you can tell with them, and to be honest, I don’t think this one avoided that trap. The memorable parts of the story were the last ten minutes, with Rory, and the crack, and Amy forgetting, and those are the minutes that lift this one above the pedestrian for me.
