THE LAST GREAT FROST FAIR
Following immediately on from the in-built teaser at the tail end of “Smile” (reviewed HERE), series 10 roars into its third week with unabashed gusto. We began in the present (“The Pilot”, reviewed HERE), shot forward to the future and now it’s time for a history lesson! The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill (Pearl Mackie) find themselves in London, 1814, where the Thames is frozen over and mysterious green lights can be seen swimming beneath the surface.
