Back in August, I wrote about the mini episode of Doctor Who that was written by a team of schoolkids, winners of a scriptwriting contest. Their episode debuted during the series finale of Doctor Who Confidential on Saturday night, just after “The Wedding of River Song.” And here it is:
I must say, I do think the kids have captured the humor of the show: Albert Einstein tried to steal the TARDIS? Of course he did! And the technobabble: “Bionic fusion liquid”? And the Doctor: love him taking a deep breath and trying to stay calm when dealing with Albert:
And the confusion: Was Albert Einstein always an Ood, or did the bionic fusion liquid turn him into an Ood? If death is the only answer, what is the question? And the structure: Ends on a cliffhanger!
(FYI, that’s Nikolas Grace, aka the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 1980s Robin of Sherwood, as Albert Einstein.)
I say Bravo! to the children of Oakley Junior School. With respect, Moffat, you’re fired.
