‘MUMMY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS’
Please feel free to comment on my review.
The Orient Express In Space
I loved watching ‘Mummy On The Orient Express’ by Jamie Mathieson. This is another one of my favourite episodes from Series 8 of ‘Doctor Who’, as it has the classic storytelling and charm about it.
In the episode, the Doctor and Clara board the Orient Express, a 1920s steam train that is now travelling in space. I loved the 20s feel of the Orient Express and it blends well with the sci-fi aspects.
This is a gripping murder mystery adventure. The story features a terrifying mummy aboard the Orient Express killing off people one by one within sixty-six seconds. The Doctor wonders why this is.
I love Jenna Coleman as Clara in this episode. She looks stunning and beautiful in her 1920s gear. I wanted to fall in love with her and take her on a night out to a 20s ball whilst watching this episode.
This episode also features special guest star Frank Skinner as Perkins, the engineer aboard the Orient Express. Frank Skinner is a ‘Doctor Who’ fan and he clearly enjoyed appearing in this special episode.
The DVD special features on this episode are as follows. On Disc 4 of ‘The Complete Series 8’, there’s the ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ music video by Foxes. On Disc 5, there’s the ‘Mummy On The Orient Express – Doctor Who Extra’ featurette.
‘Mummy On The Orient Express’ rating – 10/10
