One of the joys of this format is that every once in a while, the show throws a curveball at us that sounds like a fun time and ends up being a real brainburner. Such is the case with series 8 episode 3, “Robot of Sherwood”. On the Doctor Who political compass, this episode is resting comfortably in the square labeled “stupid” and “bad”. The characters are across-the-board annoying this week, and the story is totally incoherent. At least it’s a fun disaster!
