“I don’t have the luxury of outrage.”
The third episode of Series 10 of Doctor is the story written by Sarah Dollard titled “Thin Ice”. It takes place during 1814 during the last Frost Fair on the river Thames. But there is something not right with this Frost Fair as people seem to have been disappearing and there are also green lights under the ice. Not to mention a giant creature chained down in the Thames whose excrement seems to burn a lot stronger and longer than coal. I do believe that scene where Bill goes “No Sh…..” is one of the funniest in the new series in quite some time.
The scenes under the water were pretty cool. I loved seeing The Doctor and Pearl using the old Victorian style diving equipment. It was pretty funny seeing The Doctor trying to run in it as I think in reality it would of slowed him down a bit more than what we saw. But seeing the two of them next to the creature under water in the Thames was pretty amazing especially when they saw that big eye.
I really enjoyed Thin Ice even though Thin Ice wasn’t anything earthshattering or exceptionally amazing it was a pretty decent story that wasn’t too complicated and it did a pretty decent job getting its message out. For the most part it was a pretty fun and entertaining story to enjoy watching.
