Jurassic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Rerouting “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”)

Time travel and dinosaurs — they go together like teeth and curls. Strange, then, that Doctor Who has only ventured on a rousing adventure with these colossal prehistoric monsters twice, in stories about 40 years apart. At least in the latter outing, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, the special effects are leveled-up from stop motion to CGI. The TARDIS crew also gets enhanced, recruiting a pair of fish-out-of-water historical figures to help the Doctor solve the immediate problem: a Canada-size space ark is hurtling toward Earth with an evil black marketeer in tow. Plus Rory’s dad comes along. Throw in some funny robots, David Bradley, and a Silurian reference, and you’ve got yourself a Doctor Who potluck party. One thing’s for sure: This one’s going to taste… different.
