In Face the Raven the Doctor and Clara must help save the life of the returning Rigsy whilst contending with a secret street of the Doctor's enemies.
Beginning on the ending of an unseen aventure for the Doctor and Clara the story kicks straight into gear when they receive a phone call from Rigsy who needs help with a mysterious tattoo that is counting down to his death, unfortunately he cannot remember why and how he received the tattoo which interests the Doctor. Thie tattoo soon leads the trio to a secret London street that contains the likes of the Judoon, the Ood and a Cyberman as well as Alshidr/Me who is the mayor and protector of the street.
We know that the film industry is full of remakes but a lot of the time they tend to be of older or horror/slasher films. Now though they have decided to remake Christopher Nolan's Memento from 2000 and seriously, what is the point?
You could ask what is the point of any remake really but at least with some of the older films it introduces them to a new generation and with horror/slasher films it brings them back from the dead, no pun intended.
I massively enjoyed the Preacher comics so a rather looking forward to this. I imagine that some of the storylines will be dropped but from what I noticed in the trailer they will be at least doing the killer who removed faces one.
In this weeks episode the Doctor faces Zygons and not so subtle political allegories.
Now don't get me wrong I do like and enjoy programmes/episodes that have allegories/social commentary, political or not, but despite making me laugh with a couple of lines about todays society they were definitely in your face. Despite that though the episode still contained a decent enough slow build to the possible upcoming invasion of the episodes title.
