This weekend brings us Before the Flood, the wrap-up to Under the Lake (which began last week).
I struggled a bit with the pacing and logic of Under the Lake, but I’m going to give it another go prior to viewing Before the Flood this weekend. I’m told Lake plays much more fully and successfully the second time around, and I’m looking forward to seeing if this proves to be the case.
I’ve previously asserted a belief that DOCTOR WHO sometimes struggles to ‘land’ the conclusions of its multipart stories; trailers for Before the Flood are managing to look even more intriguing than last week’s set-up - suggesting that it may well rally to a conclusion stronger and more interesting than its inaugural installment. Fingers crossed that it holds together, as there's a great deal of potential payoff here.
Here’s BBC’s official ‘introduction’ to this tale….
…and here’s a gallery of official promo images, which will expand should more become available throughout the week.
