Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, our heroes hid out in 1871, the Old West, much to Ray’s (Brandon Routh) glee. They were all having a bit of fun until the requisite bar fight, where they were saved by Jonah Hex (Jonathan Schaech), who also happenned to be an old frenemy of Rip’s (Arthur Darvill). The town was being terroroized by the Stillwater gang, and the legends wanted to put a stop to it. Rip resisted but then stepped up once Jax (Franz Drameh) got taken. Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) met an old version of herself. Stein (Victor Garber) saved the life of a child, H.G. Wells, who was obviously influenced by the futuristic battle that takes place in front of everyone once the Time Masters showed up.

Spoilers below.

TV Review: Doctor Who 9.12 “Hell Bent”

Doctor Who
Season 9, Episode 12 “Hell Bent”
Directed by Rachel Talalay
Written by Steven Moffat
Starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Maisie Williams, Ken Bones, T’nia Miller, Clare Higgins
BBC America
Air date: December 5, 2015

This week, we find the Doctor back on Gallifrey, the home of Time Lords. It’s a place of many traps, both for the Doctor and for Doctor Who.

There is frequently the desire to indulge in the worst kind of fan nostalgia by summoning up key words, faces, and objects from the past.

In this week’s episode, “Hell Bent,” I think the Doctor emerges relatively unscathed, but only after the showrunner Steven Moffat leads us through some abrupt and unconvincing turns that aim high but cater to the show’s worst storytelling tendencies.
