Doctor Who: Listen – 7 Failures Which Destroy The Story
Broadcast this past weekend, Listen was the latest episode in Doctor Who to try and established just who Capaldi’s incarnation of the iconic Time Lord truly is. From the manic beginnings with a lengthy regeneration story to a shocking ruthless streak in Into The Dalek, then some plain old silliness in Robot of Sherwood, series eight seems to be trying everything and anything. Listen now took things a step further, but with mixed results. While a chilling tale with excellent writing and direction for the most part, by the end just about everything falls to bits.
