Doctor Who Finale Hell Bent: Was That Trans Regeneration Really Needed?
Couldn’t Doctor Who Series 9 have finished with a less contentious episode than the disappointing but not-really-all-that-bad Hell Bent? Capaldi was wonderful once again, as was Coleman – but did the Doctor – and Moffat – really have to go that far with the storyline only to wind up not killing Clara after all?
And did we really need Ken Bones’ General to regenerate? And did it have to be into a female incarnation? Did that further the story at all? We don’t think so.
With Christian Cawley, James McLean – and through the wonder of timey wimey editing, Brian Terranova.
