Given the whole reason for the show returning was to give closure to the show’s mythology and the fabled 2012 invasion of Earth, the fact they managed to deliver it over these past two series in such an unsatisfactory way is really frustrating. The monster-of-the-week episodes ended up being far smarter and more fun than any of the mythology episodes, showing that the show more than has a place in 2018. The mythology clearly was a shackle around everybody’s legs that they should have just focused on resolving in the previous miniseries. I’m not surprised that Gillian is reluctant to return, as I’m sure she felt an obligation to the fans to wrap things up in Series 10, only to be duped into giving the fans yet another cliffhanger requiring her to return again for a Series 11. I’d feel pretty over it in those circumstances too.
