Spyfall, Part 2

Critic reviews for Spyfall, Part 2

"Spyfall Part 2" lacks the Bond-ness of its predecessor but makes up for it in historical female heroes, the Master chewing up every bit of scenery he passes through, and Graham fancy dancing in his laser shoes.

Still, that's the delightfully winging-it nature of Who continuity, and this serves to set up a story arc that could take us right back into the history of the Time Lords. Count us intrigued.

A well-written two-parter with a fun new version of a classic foe at the centre of it all. A fine debut story for Series 11!

"Spyfall, Part Two" falls well short of its predecessor, wrapping up the first two-parter of the Chris Chibnall era with an episode that's narratively all over the place, but which promises an intriguing overarching story for the remainder of the season.

"Spyfall: Part 2" is arguably the most accomplished episode of Chibnall's tenure we've yet seen.

January 6, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

In an episode stuffed with laser shoes, light aliens, and historical cameos, it's a testament to Whittaker and Sacha Dhawan that the conversations between the Doctor and the Master feel thrilling.
