2MTL 301: "The Rings of Akhaten" Reviewed

Doctor Who as written and directed by Jack Kirby? To this comics reader this certainly LOOKED like an episode that belonged in DC Comics's world of mad gods and flying supercycles. But did "The Rings of Akhaten" belong in Doctor Who's world?

  1. You hit the nail on the head. I really loved some of the bits in this episode. And the fact they didn't explain it was even better. But it really was a bit bizarre. I'm glad I saw it, but I can understand why people didn't like it. But isn't it great that we can get an episode like this every once in awhile and next week a more classic Doctor Who story? Rings of Akhaten really did play out a bit like a Neil Gaiman episode. One you don't think about too much but enjoy for what it is.
