Critic reviews for The Timeless Children

Chris Chibnall's ideas are so insular, in both ambition and approach, that The Timeless Children ultimately makes Doctor Who smaller on the inside.

"The Timeless Children," delivers equal parts action, adventure, mystery, and mythology to take the story in new directions in the coming seasons.

The episode's marathon-length info dump comes at the cost of sacrificing its storyline with the Cybermen, but with it brings this unparalleled reunification of so many bits of peculiar Doctor Who history.

Having spent weeks wondering if Chris Chibnall's desire to reinvent Doctor Who would cause him to go too far, it's hard not to feel that he ended up not going far enough.

It's a jam-packed finale and the culmination of showrunner Chris Chibnall's most ambitious storyline yet. A few other characters and plot points get lost in all the big revelations, and the companions largely take a backseat to the Doctor's journey.

It kind of feels like a lot of sound and fury that didn't exactly signify much.
