Title: The Crimson Horror
What's it about?: Siluran Madama Vastra and her companions Jenny and the Sontaran Strax are investigating a mysterious case involving victims being found with red skin. But where are the Doctor and Clara in all of this?
How did Rick Like It?: There is some creepiness abound in this episode! Part of it involves the work of the legendary Diana Rigg and her daughter Rachael Stirling playing a mother and daughter in this episode. I had to watch this episode twice though to fully enjoy everything that was going on because a lot happens in the span of an hour or so. Having said that, it was a nice breath of fresh air to have the focal characters not as the Doctor and Clara, but rather Madame Vastra and her crew. The big reveal is pretty creepy and a fun twist on the proceedings to be sure. One thing that I did LOVE was Strax and his non-knowledge of how Earth stuff works. One scene in particular where he argues with horse is one of the highlights of the episode. Definitely a fun episode but one that is a bit weaker than last week's adventure in the TARDIS.
Final Grade: B+
