What I also liked about The Girl Who Waited is just how old school science fiction it feels at times. Doctor Who hasn’t been shy about being overtly sci-fi, of course, but there are times when it’s left to be utterly implicit to what’s going on. It’s implicit here, too, but visually, the screen is filled with a really convincing world to visit. Not that I’d be in a hurry to go there myself.
