Unfortunately, I found an episode rife with pirates, treasure & plausible possible-Rory-death as dull as dishwater.
I’ve little to say other than that…
maybe younger viewers could have enjoyed it;
the hatch & the eye-patch (Lady Kovarian) is this seasons crack – it’ll keep you coming back for more;
and that the episode may well also have been a long way of introducing how Amy’s inevitable pregnancy is possible: 2 Amys, one nested within the other – by accident or not – would explain why the TARDIS can’t tell if she’s pregnant.
Theories abound online as to who the Lady with the eye-patch is – and I’m sure they’re right – but I’ll not peek at the end, not until my intrigue is truly piqued.
This week, it was not.
