Oxygen - WNAR #109

So as with all my reviews, I will give the synopsis – what you mean that wasn’t the synopsis. The good bits, the bad bits. The most whoniversal bit and then my rambling musings.

Space - the final frontier. Final because it wants to kill us.' Trapped on a space station with no oxygen, the Doctor, Bill and Nardole are horrified to discover the automated spacesuits keeping them alive are also trying to kill them!
 

The Good Bits – Bill and her expression were a joy to behold.

The Bad Bit – The premise or corporations starving people of oxygen

The whoniversal bit – The doctor sacrificing himself in that manner and the ramifications of that act – so many comparisons between emoji bots and silence of the library suits

The episode delivers plenty of scares, the highlight being an unsettling sequence in which Bill is briefly exposed to the vacuum of space and we witness the subsequent battle between the mining crew and space zombies only in flashes, as she passes in and out of consciousness.
