The 2 parter has the same problems this author's work always has. Seems like a romp on the surface but every character (and I mean every character) engages in morally incongruous behavior that makes them unrelatable charactures. Its often in direct conflict with their behavior in previous scenes or episodes. Meanwhile, the author dictates to us what we should find objectionable and what we should like and its completely detached from the natural human reaction to the situation.

In other words, I think Chris Chibnall is an alien who got stranded on Earth and will probably hitch a ride on the first Vogon ship outa here.

I really liked this one. It felt more "down-to-Earth" than a lot of the previous episodes. There weren't any silly aliens in it or ridiculous situations. Definitely as good as "The Time of Angels". And I'm really looking forward to the next episode. Definitely at least a "B+".

fair enough. I'm mainly talking about the second episode in this case anyway.

There was a Voyager reference in tonight's episode (episode 11). I wonder how many people here will spot it? :D
