Hitler Lives!

Doctor Who survives a questionable gimmick

Muscle car, meet Tardis

August 30, 2011, OTTAWA — I feel almost shell-shocked.

After eight episodes of Torchwood: Miracle Day, I had almost forgotten that a television program set in the Whoniverse can actually be fun, that it can move.

As a bonus, Steven Moffat has slipped a pretty major change into that universe's cannon, one likely to upset both traditionalists and racists alike.

Of course, it's not all roses. To my mind, Steven Moffat's Who still suffers from a disregard for world-building and characterization that has been the sadly surprising hall-mark of his run as show-runner on the venerable franchise.For the good, the bad, and the frustrating (with spoilers), Let's Visit Hitler.
