Throughout the years Doctor Who has had the distinction of bringing us on a wide verity of adventures. We’ve seen comedy, even slapstick humor, and even various send ups of the show itself. This week we were exposed to the show bringing out an old and familiar psychological terror that lies somewhat in us all.
Monsters and Doctor Who are inseparable.
They rely on each other for existence both in the real life of the television series, where the monsters are certainly one of the reasons viewers tune in every week, and in the fiction itself, where a Doctor who did not meet and battle monsters would hardly seem like the Doctor at all.
Traditional rules for Doctor Who have monsters that are great and wonderful but somewhat see through and a bit repetitive. They all want to take over the earth, they all want ultimate power and they all want more then they rightly deserve, and only the Doctor can stop them.
