Summary: The Doctor poses as Coal Hill High’s Caretaker, suspecting that an alien called the Skovox Blitzer may be there. He also finally meets Danny Pink.
Review: This was kind of a chore for me because it was so slow. But once things got going, it wasn’t too bad. The Blitzer was a funny alien.
Overall Rating: 5/10
Continuity: The Tenth Doctor also went undercover at a school. The Doctor is once again uncomfortable around soldiers. The Doctor says that a soldier can’t teach math, but forgot that the Brigadier was doing the same thing in “Mawdryn Undead”. The Seventh Doctor was once asked if he was applying to be a caretaker when he returned to 1963 Earth. Both the Doctor and Clara opened the TARDIS by snapping their fingers. The Doctor finds the same junkyard where the TARDIS made its first-ever appearance and says “Home, Sweet Home”. The Eleventh Doctor also posed as a caretaker in Madge’s house. Danny compares the Doctor to the officers who light the flames he carries out. The War Doctor considered himself a lesser man to those forged in the fire he was creating.
