The Doctor, gangsters and plucky youngsters ...
on 26 September 2011
This Tenth Doctor adventure has undertones, to me, of Bladerunner, Indiana Jones and Austin Powers - dark cities, evil gangsters named Uncle, albino bad guys, running around corridoors, pickpockets - it's all go in New Memphis, that's for sure. I had figured out where Nikki's father was, and who The Widow was long before, apparently, anyone else in New Memphis did. This story really just comes across as a slightly schlocky gangster and detective story that happens to have the Doctor involved in it - it really is not a "Doctor Who" story at all. Vaguely disappointing. Just makes 3 stars from me.
