Doctor Who
3x32 The Dancing Floor
aka The Celestial Toymaker Part 3. The Toymaker feels like a really good idea (I guess that’s why there have been so many attempts to bring him back), but the middle episodes of this story suggest it’s harder than you’d think to find something interesting to do with the concept. Or maybe the games just needed someone with more imagination. I mean, half this episode is taken up by Steven and Dodo needing to find a key, which they do by… looking around a kitchen until they find it. Hardly the stuff thrilling adventures are made of, is it?
