Comments: The team transport to Tranquility Spa for a vacation of rest and relaxation. Of course, this being Dr. Who chances are that is not going to happen. Things do start happening once she arrives.
A horrific monster is on the loose. People are in deadly danger. They are trapped and who can help them well the Doctor can. Things are not as they first seem. Which suits this series so well.
The Dregs appear as monsters but are they? The Doctor gets everyone running as she is saving everyone that she can. The Dregs now these beasts are mutants and they are portrayed as the planets Apex Killers. They do what they have to to survive.
Things do get moving fast and the action is thrilling as the danger mounts. The Dregs are so well presented as a threat. Yet they are not what they first appear to be and the Doctor does what she does best she brings the truth to light. The Doctor as any doctor does do she works to save lives.
The message for this episode is that you and the human race, in whole, should be the best you can be. That is all anyone can do.
Doctor Who is a show about hope.
