This week brings us Under the Lake, the third episode of DOCTOR WHO Season/Series 9, this one scripted by Toby Whithouse (who brought us The Vampires of Venice, The God Complex, and A Town Called Mercy in the Matt Smith-era, as well as the 10th Doctor adventure School Reunion).
The tone of S9’s two-part opening episode (The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar) was notably mature and intense - and promos and clips from this week’s installment suggest we may be in for a darker outing this time around as well.
I strongly suspect suspect Team Moff may bring a more sober tone to bear throughout this series, which I personally don’t have any issues with whatsoever - although it’s hard not to wonder whether this more mature vibe might be playing into some of the ratings wobble currently being noted in the UK.
Here are some promo images from Under the Lake. The second installment in this tale, Before the Flood, transmits next Saturday.
