It feels good to have it back doesn’t it? After a summer of riots and phone-hacking scandals, nothing could be more appropriate to lighten the mood than locking Hitler in a cupboard. The beauty of this episode was that it managed to be fun and silly while still clearing up a lot of questions left dangling from the first half of the series, particularly regarding one River Song/Melody Pond.
Despite it’s comical title, Let’s Kill Hitler, this wasn’t the type of episode I was expecting to open up the second half of the series. The mid-series finale, A Good Man Goes To War, was very dark and grim in places, especially towards the end when the Doctor realises the extent of pain and destruction he has caused the universe, so I was assuming we would continue in that vein for a while. But instead, Let’s Kill Hitler was a fun-filled rollick around 1930s Berlin, who’d have thunk it?
