After starting strong with "The Eleventh Hour," Season Five of Doctor Who has already taken a tumble, in my opinion, with its second episode, "The Beast Below." It wasn't awful-- and certainly nothing on par with the terribleness of "The Idiot's Lantern" or "Daleks in Manhattan"--but it was weak. Muddled. Mostly because what we had was two episodes in one, as if two scripts had been mashed together haphazardly, and the result was that we got less of what could have been a really great episode and more of one that was simply "meh."
