Doctor Who – ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’ Spoiler-free Review

Direct from the BFI screening, Caleb Woodbridge brings us his spoiler-free review of ‘Let’s Kill Hitler‘, the first episode of the autumn run of Doctor Who!

As the Doctor, Amy and Rory search for Melody Pond, they find the TARDIS hijacked! Arriving in Berlin, 1938, they discover they aren’t the only time-travellers present and that Hitler isn’t the worst war criminal on the loose…

I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the BFI screening of Let’s Kill Hitler in the two hours before they sold out. The screen was packed with fans and press, who laughed and cheered and whooped in all the right places. Scattered around the room were various Doctor Who cast and crew, from Michael Pickwoad the producting designer, to writer Phil Ford, Doctor Who Magazine editor Tom Spilsbury and many others of the great and the good. And, of course, Steven Moffat, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill – though sadly not Matt Smith, who is busy filming another series.

We’ll have more on the screening and Q&A soon, but now you can hear my first spoiler-free reactions to the episode! Hit play or click download to hear my review.
