Comments: Nikola Tesla is a man driven to inventing and providing energy. He cares.
Things start happening around Tesla and people dying. So, of course, the Dr. shows up. They end up on the Orient Express. When the Dr. shows up things amp up. There is always running involved too. Plus some mystery. The Dr. does make a great detective.
Of course, aliens are involved. Or at least alien technology.
The Dr. and Tesla do share a moment about their being similar. Both are outsiders.
Edison is here as well. He is presented as one stuck up blowhard with an attitude.
When things take a turn in this episode they really do. Aliens abound as they want Tesla and they get him. The aliens however you are expecting them to look this is not it. These aliens by going after Tesla are taking on the Dr.
The Dr., Tesla and Edison and her Companions vs giant intelligent alien scorpions. The aliens look amazing. The Dr. even more so. In a fight of brains vs brawn, the Dr. wins every time.
Tesla is so inspiring. He may not be as famous as Edison but he was and is just as brilliant if not more so.
It is wonderful to see the Dr. working with another brilliant mind and having her make sure they stay alive and inventing. Plus seeing the Dr. and her technology inspires others. She does that the Dr. She inspires us all to be better.
