So was this episode of Doctor Who actually a massive metaphor for abortion and a woman’s right to choose? If so, it was a pretty pro-life leaning one. The space dragon is born with no ill effects and saves humanity despite the astronaut’s desire to kill it and move on. Too heavy-handed for my tastes.
Otherwise this was a solid, workman-like bit of Who that didn’t really offer anything new.
Until the ending when 12 finally got pulled up on being a rude, patronising, grumpy bastard by Clara.
Also Courtney proved to be as pointless as I had originally feared.
