Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E07 — The Bells of Saint John

 When reviewing The Bells of Saint John for the first time my take­away was that this was a solid but unex­cep­tional episode that used a lot of familiar elements. After a re-watch I think that's still broadly true.

It can’t be, because it has too many roles to fill.
