Doctor Who - Season 12, Episode 6 - Rotten Tomatoes


Critic Consensus: A step back from the previous installment, "Praxeus" is a mystery box that doesn't add up to much, but it's still a fun enough return to basics for Doctor Who.

Episode Info

Critic reviews for Praxeus

It's an hour that finally strikes a strong narrative balance between the Doctor and her three companions, giving each member of Team TARDIS something significant to do and allowing them to have a real impact on the story.

Overall a rather harmless mixed bag of an episode, but I'd still lean towards good overall, just not a story I'm likely to rush and revisit...

Caveats aside, this episode feels comfortable in itself in a way Doctor Who hasn't for some time - that, and finally giving Yaz something to do, makes for an enjoyable story.

Overall, "Praxeus" feels cluttered and rushed.

Admittedly, it's a little strange that we don't get any real fallout from last week's game-changing episode. But when the results are this fun it's hard to mind too much.

This episode is incredibly preachy while still being wholly enjoyable and vastly superior to "Orphan 55."
