What Did You Think of Doctor Who: 73 Yards?

We’re halfway through Doctor Who Series 14 already, with the first batch of adventures for the Fifteenth Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) now behind us. But in 73 Yards, the pair were largely separated, with Gibson doing much of the heavy lifting — giving her a chance to shine on her own, away from the presence of a certain Time Lord.

And we weren’t the only ones keeping a watchful eye on Ruby in this episode…

The story was strange, unsettling, and intriguing, also revisiting many of the political themes mulled over in Doctor Who and fellow shows like Years and Years by writer, Russell T Davies.

It got rave reviews before its broadcast, but what did you think of 73 Yards?

We want to know, in our poll and in our comments section below! How did it stack up against the other episodes of Series 14? How about against other Doctor-lite episodes like Blink and The Girl Who Waited? And what are your feelings on this run of stories so far?

Can’t get the poll to show up? It’s probably due to an ad-blocker which often bans other content. No worries though: you can simply click on this link to be redirected to the poll itself in another tab.
