Knock Knock

The sound of creaking isn’t generally an indication of something in rude health – but this episode of Doctor Who might prove to be the exception…



BROADCAST Saturday 6 May 2017

The latest Doctor Who episodes and products reviewed by our team!

‘Infestation of the Dryads!’ Presumably that’s the title the Doctor has assigned this adventure in his personal canon. A Dryad is a tree nymph in Greek mythology. I know this because I went and looked it up. Doctor Who often takes from the classics.

No one person could ever be equal to those tales, but Knock Knock’s writer, Mike Bartlett, comes closer than most. As guest-star David Suchet referenced last issue, this is the man behind one of the BBC’s most successful dramas of recent times, Doctor Foster (2015), which climaxed with a viewership of over 10 million – a staggering amount in the new money of broadcasting climes. He’s also won multiple Olivier awards, and just to rub it in, four days after his Doctor Who début, BBC Two brought us his adaptation of his own much-lauded play, King Charles III starring the late Tim Pigott-Smith.
