Just got around to watching the 2nd episode. These are great little stories - I hope they keep up like this! This one was much easier to watch than the first one because it wasn’t flooded with ads and cutaways. Love the theme music and visuals that go along with it.

Nitpicking… I wish there was less emphasis on the Sonic screwdriver. But then, that is a carryover from all of the modern-era episodes.

I still dislike the color palette - or lack thereof. All that orange is driving me crazy. The lack of natural color, especially whites and blues (and actual greens and reds) makes everything look small and scrunched. Hard for me to imagine how multiple people can look at this and not immediately see that the colors are worse than on the 1970s episodes on VHS. There is no discernible reason for this, because most of the other modern-era Who episodes had great, rich color.

I still have no idea what the Tardis looks like, but I’m assuming that will become more clear in the next episode. Well, other than that it is almost entirely orange (like the rest of the show).
