Let’s Kill Hitler: A Review for Doctor Who

It’s been a long couple of months since we last had the revelation that Amy and Rory’s daughter is actually River Soong. Tonight the story finally continues.
I liked this episode, it isn’t great but it isn’t a weak episode. We are soon introduced to a new character, called Mel, who is a childhood friend of Rory and Amy’s. She’s great and slightly immoral, after all she does steal a red double decked bus.
The story flows brilliantly. Answers are revelled. Unfortunately the cliffhanger is a little same old, it isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Doctor in this kind of predicament. Half way though the story he is poisoned by River, who the character Mel has just regenerated into. This River is not like the character we’ve met before, she has been brainwashed into being an assassin for the people who kidnapped her when she was a baby.
For the next 30 minutes, River’s parents chase her around Berlin, the Doctor tries to find a cure and we find out that River is a war criminal.
A lot happens in this episode, and if you watch carefully you can see beautiful little details. Like the journal the Doctor leaves for her at the hospital, it’s empty and ready to be filled.
That’s the thing about time travel, if you think about it too hard your brain will explode.
So I give ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’ 4/5.
