Doctor Who: Zombies in Space

Really, zombies in space is almost as good as dinosaurs on a spaceship, but I didn't cry in "Oxygen," like I did with Matt Smith's 2012 adventure. The humans in the latest Doctor Who's episode fared about as good as the dinosaurs, though. I knew dead people walking around outside a spacecraft was probably not a good sign!

Bill and Nardole join the Doctor, and they come to the rescue of soon-to-be oxygen deprived individuals. The numbers aren't in their favor. I loved Bill's reaction to the blue man, and I am really liking her so much! She's still making smart decisions, and her reactions are believable.

Still! Who is in the vault? Obviously someone who is a good piano player. Nardole obviously doesn't know the Doctor has visited whoever is behind the door. I did appreciate the tidbit in which Nardole stated it was the Doctor that directed him to be such a stick in the mud when it came to the Doctor going on adventures that took him away from the vault.

I can see the writers are starting to weave in Capaldi's departure from the show. It figures he is starting to grow on me AFTER he made the decision to leave the show.
