Tread Perilously concludes its current tour of Doctor Who with its first Peter Capaldi era story, “Dark Water/Death in Heaven.”
When Clara’s boyfriend gets owned by a bus, Clara threatens to destroy all the keys to the TARDIS unless The Doctor agrees to save him. The Doctor decides to help her out anyway and they make their way to 3W, a strange mortuary service led by the equally odd Missy. But the whole thing turns out to be the work of the Master as she implements Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as Cybermen begin to cover the Earth in a storm of Cyber-pollen, Clara and her dead boyfriend argue.
Fanbase Press’ Drew Siragusa joins Erik and Justin as Justin finally meets the Cybermen! The group discusses the Master at length while Erik recalls the days of Mondas. They also find the Doctor’s casual negging of Clara appearance really off-putting. Justin considers the possibility of Augustus Gloop running the Chocolate Factory and “Death in Heaven” never stops ending.
Steven Moffat ends up an unpopular fellow in this one.
