We celebrate the Peter Capaldi era by revisiting the 12th Doctor's adventures as we count down the days to his last adventure.
"I don't know whether you're here to invade, infiltrate, or just replace us. I don't suppose it really matters now. You are monsters! That is the role you seem determined to play. So it seems that I must play mine: The man that stops the monsters."
When Steven Moffat told writer of Kill the Moon Peter Harness to Hinchcliffe the $#@% out of it I don’t think he meant that one story but I believe he meant Series 8 in general. In fact Flatline is the closest a new Who story has come to achieving this and it would make Robert Holmes smile. I’m sure he is smiling from heaven as Jamie Mathieson has so far been able to replicate his style of horror in Doctor Who.
I really liked the monster in this story. It was clever to have a monster from another dimension invade Earth by living in the walls. The Boneless were pretty creepy and even though the CGI version was ok but nothing special to look especially when they took shape but as the slugs in the wall is where I thought they worked. Even though the human looking ones were ok CGI it did not harm the overall storyline or enjoyment of Flatline. What Doctor Who is good at is using normal everyday objects like WIFI and now walls and make them scary and menacing as it gives us something to think twice about.
