Rate & Discuss: The Power of Three
The Doctor and the Ponds puzzle an unlikely invasion of Earth, as millions of sinister black cubes arrive overnight. But what are they, what’s inside them and most importantly, who sent them?
Tonight may have been Episode 4 of Series 7 but it was all about The Power of Three.
So far this month we’ve seen Daleks, dinosaurs and a relentless cyborg (standard!) but in this week’s episode, all the tension was notched up to a whole different level as planet Earth faced the Year of the Slow Invasion. The invasion might have been slow but the pace of the story certainly wasn’t, bringing with it an array of shocks and surprises…
And it would’ve felt like Christmas had arrived early for fans of Amy and Rory, who took center stage in Chris Chibnall’s episode. In the penultimate part of the Ponds’ story, the TARDIS trio did what they do best when they worked together to learn the culprit behind the mysterious cube invasion. But as the truth began to unravel before their eyes, so did the sudden realisation that all good things must come to an end eventually – or do they?
What did you think of The Power of Three? Its writer described it as “really unusual”, but was this a positive or a negative aspect of the story? Did you enjoy watching events unfold from Amy and Rory’s point of view? Rate and review the latest episode right now!
