Some Thoughts On “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”

Well, I’ll say this. It lived up to the title. We had a spaceship. With dinosaurs.

There was a lot of fun in this episode. I liked all the new characters, especially Solomon, who I really hope we will see again. The fact that the ship was a Silurian ark was neat and cool. The SFX on the dinosaurs were even rather neat.

There were many problems, however. Neither Nefertiti nor the big game hunter were needed in the story. They could have been completely written out and that would have tightened up the focus. I liked the characters, but we didn’t need to have them. Ditto Rory’s dad. The droids were neat, though.

Really, this was a solid, entertaining, stand-alone episode that was perfectly acceptable. It could have been better, but for what it was, it was good enough. 3 1/2 stars.
