Dinosaurs on a Spaceship hits a sweetspot for me in new Who. Series 6 had been full of dark, occasionally depressing continuity-laden tales It could feel like the fun had been sucked out of the series and then along comes, “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.”

Dinosaurs on the Spaceship finds Amy and Rory, as well as Rory’s father, Brian as well as two other friends of the Doctor, Queen Nefertiti and Riddell to save the dinosaurs on the spaceship from being destroyed by the Indian space agency and from an evil trader named Solomon.

The story continues at a fun action filled pace throughout. The best thing I like about the story is Rory’s Dad, Brian. He’s the best companion family member introduced outside of Wilfred Mott. The scene of Brain eating a sandwich in space while sitting on the step of the TARDIS is such a gorgeous visual. The other characters, while a little bit limited, help to paint a picture of the Eleventh Doctor’s wide-ranging adventures away from Amy and Rory.

The voices of the robots in this story are a little silly, and there are a few other minor points, but overall, this remains the highlight of the first part of Series 7 for me.

Gimmicky and annoying to the extreme. Whilst this story might be fun to others I found it an annoying waste of time. The characters are barely developed and the actual plot is paper thin. There's also some moral ambiguity about the Doctor's actions here.
