Doctor Who, series 11, episode 2 – The ghost monument

A race against time to win the Race of 12 galaxies, traveling through a dangerous territory on a planet with 3 suns to arrive to the Ghost monument (that looks a lot like a blue box phone), using only what they find on spot and avoiding everything that could kill them.

The previous episode let the Doctor and her companions floating, lost is space of unknown solar system. She was searching her TARDIS and, by mistake, took the 3 humans along. They are saved by the only 2 surviving pilots of a very long race, they land on Desolation, the final part of the route. The only reason the 4 travelers join the 2 pilots is the TARDIS without they would be stuck on the surface of Desonations, a place that would kill them in less than a day.

The episode was directed by Mark Tonderai, based on a story by Chris Chibnall, and it continues pretty good (in the same style) the first episode of the series. You won’t get (too) bored watching it.

Cast: Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Bradley Walsh (Graham O’Brien), Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair), Mandip Gill (Yasmin Khan), Shaun Dooley (Epzo), Ian Gelder (Remnants – voice), Susan Lynch (Angstrom), Art Malik (Ilin).

The next episode: Montgomery, Alabama. 1955. The Doctor and her friends find themselves in the Deep South of America. As they encounter a seamstress by the name of Rosa Parks, they begin to wonder whether someone is attempting to change history.
