“Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie are as reliably great as ever”
“… this is one of Gatiss' more successful scripts, mostly because his love for the Ice Warriors shines through.”
“A rip-roaring confection of Jules Verne’s voyages extraordinaires and Doctor Who’s Greatest Hits, Empress Of Mars is a very satisfying, good old-fashioned monster story romp.”
“No one does it like Mark Gatiss”
“Throw in Nardole needing Missy in order to get the TARDIS back to Mars, and her concern over Doctor and you’ve got an intriguing set up for the remainder of the season that makes this much-needed trip away from Earth all the more worthwhile.”
"Empress of Mars looks to the future while nodding at the past"
“Another old-fashioned Doctor Who episode, Empress of Mars is enjoyable”
“Empress of Mars has great villains”
“Ice Warriors return with added Girl Power”
