Dead Center (Skirting “Terminus”)

Dead Center (Skirting “Terminus”)

Doctor Who explains the Big Bang! That’s an ambitious idea, and not one you’d expect to be shoehorned into an episode about space lepers journeying to a vast space station that promises not just a cure for their disease but also the opportunity to play with the biggest dog you’ve ever seen. Still, Terminus goes for it, soldiering on through plot holes the size of a supercluster to explain how all of creation came into existence, plus how Tegan and Turlough can somehow command tons of screen time yet do absolutely nothing. Other conundrums include: Why does Nyssa want to stay here? And where can I write to Terminus HR about their "murder people on sight" policy? Hang onto your skirts, Lazars, this is going to be a bumpy one.
