“There something in the mists!”
This episode started really well and the last five minutes just boggles my mind.
It was a dark and stormy night in 1970’s on the moors in your a-typical British Manor where there is a ghost afoot and Dougray Scott and Jessica Raine are on the case as Professor Alec Palmer and Emma Grayling.
They are investigating the resident spook story of a woman haunting the home for several hundred years when the Doctor and Clara arrive to help in this moodier than normal episode that harkens back to The Unquiet Dead when the ghost turns out to be something quite different.
Like last week’s episode this is a bunker episode until the Doctor Who goes Poltergeist to solve the problem and everything turns out fine when we find out why the ghost was haunting the house only to find there’s something else that needs to be fixed too at the last minute of the episode.
It’s a C plot really and while it’s nice have the monster of the week not being the monster of the week it just felt like the writers were trying to stick too much into one 45 minute episode.
