Dreadful Doctor Who book that has nothing to do with Doctor Who at all. Plot consists of boring new characters doing boring random things. Doctor and Amy just have secondary roles and so woodenly written that you do not recognize them. I would not recommend this book, unless you happen to be a Michael Moorcock fan.

Lie of the Land is a flawed episode, but it's even more flawed because it comes at the end of a trilogy. After two parts of mysteries and questions, this is the episode where we should get answers...but we don't. From why the Monks ventured out to the Stars, where they come from, why they spent thousands of years studying Earth history and setting up simulations...why they required consent powered by love to take over...all these are among the questions that won't be satisfactorily answered in this episode. It's tough to think of an alien whose motives were so vague. Even if the monster's motives were just to be evil, that's more than we get from this episode.

In addition, you see one of the biggest emotional betrayals by a Doctor of a companion that the series has shown. Unlike with the Seventh Doctor and Ace, the explanation for the Doctor pushing Bill this far is weak. And unlike in Kill the Moon, there are no consequences for the Doctor as a result of this. The ending is a cop out and been done before in the Moffat era about a dozen times.

What does work about the episode? Missy returns and has the best moments in the show. Bill has a few good moments in the midst of the carnage.

Otherwise, this episode's a shallow a disappointing end to what began as an interesting trilogy.

Although the premise is over the top, the atmosphere is captured perfectly and the acting is very good.

The plot is a simple "what could possibly go wrong?" scenario involving genetically manipulating Vashta Nerada. The Doctor proclaims "the time between me giving a warning and all hell breaking loose is actually getting shorter."

What gives this class is the way Paul McGann and Jacqueline Pierce work together and the way the threat oozes out of the audio. There are some beautiful moments in the dialogue. This is a sequel to Night of the Veashta Nerada, but is set during the time war with references to both flooding through.

A flashy and fun to watch the episode that finds the Doctor and Bill in the real world confronting the Monks, with the Doctor acting as President of the World.

The story is fun, with lots of cool imagery, intriguing clues such as every clock in the world becoming a Doomsday Clock, and some good guest performances. However, the entertainment value is on a surface level for the most part as there are many problems and logical challenges that lurk beneath, starting with the Doctor being the President of Earth and no one thinking they have to take his commands.

Still, the show is fun with a very intense cliffhanger setting up the finale.
