The Doctor has popped in and out of the lives of Amy Pond and Rory Williams for the last three seasons (or in their time, ten years). Just as they’re getting used to life at home, the Doctor pops back in again in the episode “The Power of Three,” as do millions of black cubes worldwide. The enigmatic boxes do absolutely nothing but sit.
Forget the drama of Doctor Who’s first episode of season 7. Episode 2 of Doctor Who is pure screwball comedy. Unfortunately, although the episode had its charms, for the most part it was too, well, screwy. It’s as if the plot were lost in the fluffy fun of the episode.
