Doctor Who: The Beast Below - mini review

In bed above we're deep asleep / While greater love lies further deep / This dream must end, this world must know / We all depend on the beast below...


The 11th Doctor's second trip out is just as stunning as the first, and it proves Matt and Karen are up to the challenges of Doctor Who. It's very clear that we are in for a ride.

"The Doctor takes Amy to the distant future, where she finds Britain in space. Starship UK houses the future of the British people, as they search the stars for a new home. But as Amy explores, she encounters the terrifying Smilers and learns a deadly truth inside the Voting Booth."

As the episode opens we are introduced to a new Monster to the Who universe call the Smilers, not as Scary as I had hope for a new monster but still one that proves to be affective. The Beast Below, is the second Episode written by producer and head writer Steven Moffet, though not as great as last weeks, which introduced us to the new era of Doctor Who, the Beast Below lets us get to know our new companion the beautiful Amy Pond. Though this episode feels like it could fit in any of the past four series of the show, it does one thing that in my mind the others never really did, It made the Companion stand out above all others, I really feel that Karen Stole the show from Matt, which is good. Matt had his introduction. It's time for Amy to shine.


The episode has some nice ties to previous episode to Doctor Who, such as the reason for Starship UK, going back to Tom Bakers run as the Doctor in "Ark of Space" having meant another colony from earth, leaving to find a new home after the same Solar Flare. As well as a few other nods to the shows history.
