This weekend brings us to the conclusion of FLUX, showrunner Chris Chibnall's six installment maxi-tale effectively serving as DOCTOR WHO's 13th Season - and the last full season for Chibnall and current doctor Jodie Whittaker.
The road to The Vanquishers (this weekend's episode) has been largely entertaining - while uneven at best. Nonetheless, given the overall vibe of FLUX, it's hard not to wonder why this level of showmanship has not been evident across the duration of Chibnall's reign. Will this kinda-sorta-positive trend continue in Vanquishers?
The episode's described thusly by BBC:
In the final epic chapter in the story of the Flux, all hope is lost. The forces of darkness are in control. But when the monsters have won, who can you count upon to save the universe?
"But when the monsters have won, who can you count upon to save the universe?..." I'll go ahead and suggest Russell T. Davies may well be the answer to that question, but who knows?
