Happy New Year! This issue of DWM went to press before Resolution aired, so we’ll have your thoughts on that next issue. In the meantime, here’s what you made of the last episodes of Series 11…

Witch Hunt

PAUL REYNARD MANCHESTER

► Looming menacingly out of the Lancashire mist, Pendle Hill oversaw the disturbing and unearthly events within the chilling, gripping episode The Witchfinders. I have driven by Pendle Hill on countless occasions, but will now gaze upon it with wary eyes. For I have learned that within the hill are imprisoned aliens. Aliens of mud, bile and venomous intent – all of which were fantastically realised by the production team behind this beautifully created episode. NICK MORFITT SCUNTHORPE

► I thought The Witchfinders was another superb episode. The cinematography echoed classic Hammer Horror vibes as well as the Michael Reeves film Witchfinder General. The tone was suitably bleak and dour, lightened by a bravura performance from Alan Cumming and some nicely placed comic moments (Bradley in the hat!). The horror and insanity of the age was treated seriously and nicely offset with the usual Doctor Who alien elements. Segun Akinola’s score was ghostly and suspenseful and Siobhan Finneran’s turn as Becka gave the episode a good grounding. Plus, the references to Arthur C Clarke and Quentin Tarantino were very nice touches. Excellent stuff!
