|Meet Mystique, I mean a mutant human named Saibra.|
|4.5 out of five stars|
|Yes, that is Saibra on the left as a business guy...|
The whole episode is fun from beginning to end. The team dynamics, the plot, the desires... really everything but the alien design and the slightly too close to Mystique mutant human. Yes, she is different than Mystique, but the resemblance was uncanny (yes, I chose that word specifically).
|This is as close as Doctor Who has come to Deus Ex.|
Everything else was spot on. Capdali's dialogue is always so fun. It is delivered so off the cuff but with such perfection that sometimes you just want to hear them again.
It was fun, and hopefully this is a sign that Moffat is back to writing good episodes. Yes, he was not alone this time, but the last two have certainly been a return to the good stuff. This is turning out to be a pretty solid season, I cannot wait for episode 6.
|A Bank Teller. In the far future it appears that yes, banks will be|
considered criminal organizations, or insane asylums.
