looks to be a chilling episode this week, as we head to Scandanavia right in the centre of te classic horror trope of the cabin cottage (to be family friendly x) in the woods! Hopefully, this lives up to the classic horror as best it can better than the recent attempts at the haunted house (Hide, Knock Knock)

I know.... almost nothing about this episode so I'm very very intrigued! I'm hoping it lives up to the good reviews I've seen. Apparently one to watch live... ohmy.gif

I'm on the fence over this episode, it had its best bits and some naff bits, but enjoyable to watch and some scary moments, but a talking frog rotf.gif for me that was the most hilarious moment.

Good to see more than a little nod to Douglas Adams as well as a return to reversing the polarity.

I loved that!! Gripped the whole way through, plenty of brilliant twists and turns. The frog was ridiculous in the best sorta way. All of the main cast were utilised really well too I think!!

I was really bored the whole way through! Iím not really a massive lover of the more fantasy ideas/concepts, though once it was all revealed, I did think the idea of a sentient universe wanting to connect with this series was intriguing and the blocker between them. I just donít think there was enough there to pull me in beyound that, I didnít really feel any sort of threat at all. Really didnít care about any of the guest stars, although it was nice to see Grace back.

The pregnant man now having competition with a toad tho for worst element of the series.

I'm a bit on the fence with it. It seemed they were a bit confused as to what to focus on. That whole scene with the killer moths and Ribbons in the anti-zone felt soo out of place in comparison to what came after. I liked it a lot more when it focused on the Solitrax using loved ones to deceive Graham and Erik, I wish they would've found a way to focus on that right from the start. It could've been a much more menacing threat, as it stands, a frog in a chair wasn't the best final image. I am very glad that progress was made with Graham and Ryan, that last scene was great.

A strong positive was the setting, can confirm that Norwegian Fjord is just as wonderful as it appeared wub.gif

Not a great episode! Some nice moments but overall it was quite random and not particularly well executed.

Much like The Tsuranga Conundrum, I found myself very bored for most of this episode. sad.gif I'm hoping it's one that will be rewarding to rewatch down the line. The one thing I've taken away from the episode though is just how much I'm disliking Ryan now. The character is just... very unlikable. And it's not really helping that Tosin's performance has, for many episodes now, not been one that I find myself believing or wanting to spend any more time watching.

On a more positive note, Jodie was outstanding in this episode and the Graham/Grace scenes were incredibly touching!

1. Rosa
2. Kerblam!
3. Demons of the Punjab
4. The Witchfinders
5. The Woman Who Fell to Earth
6. Arachnids in the UK
7. The Ghost Monument
8. It Takes You Away
9. The Tsuranga Conundrum

Looking forward to the finale next week, it certainly looks like the most action-packed episode of the series (which will be most welcome).

Ugh I'm losing interest in this series :/ Hopefully the finale will pick up a bit more but the teaser didn't look like anything we haven't seen countless times before so I'm not expecting anything grand

Such a boring, flat season. Bradley Walsh and Ryan are boring and CANNOT ACT. Axe them both and keep Jasmine.
