The Zygon Inversion

Are bleak but ultimately hopeful UNIT stories going to become an annual event around Remembrance Day? I’m okay with this.

Comparisons with Death In Heaven are sort of unavoidable, what with the imperiled Osgood and the apparent death of Kate and the exploding plane and all. But I think this one wins out.

Last week’s current references make way for a more general statement about war, reprisals and the cycle of violence.

(And in amongst all that - five rounds rapid. ---kyeahbrigadier.)

“I’m old enough to be your Messiah!”

And at no point in a two-parter about shapeshifters wanting to live openly did anyone say “let Zygons be Zygons.”
