Top 3 Best Bits from Doctor Who Series 11 Ep. 4


If spiders are your nightmare fuel, then you won’t be sleeping for days! Welcome to WatchMojo UK, and today we’re counting down the top three ‘best bits’ from “Doctor Who” Series 11, Episode 4.

For this list, we’ll be rounding up the time-travelling highlights from the fourth instalment of “Doctor Who” series 11 – “Arachnids in the UK”. So, if you’re yet to see it, some spoilers are on their way!

#3: Colossal Creepy Crawlies

Eight legs. Giant bodies. And they cocoon their prey. Anyone with arachnophobia, look away now. We’re facing super-sized spiders this week and, while the Doctor has a few home remedies at hand, the entire city of Sheffield could soon succumb. These seriously scary scuttlers are mutant rather than alien, which probably only increases their fear factor. Think; ‘that house spider that’s currently in the corner of your bathroom’, only it’s much bigger and much more likely to actually kill you. In an episode that’s jam-packed with jump-scares and skin-crawling chase scenes, there’s really only one thing that can save us all… and that’s Stormzy, obviously.

#2: Graham Goes Home

More than any other episode in the series so far, “Arachnids in the UK” is straight-up sci-fi fun from start to finish. But, there’s still time for a poignant pause or two. The return of Sharon D. Clarke’s Grace within the grieving visions of Graham gives Bradley Walsh another chance to showcase his range, cutting through the spider-ish chaos to deliver a moving depiction of grief. While the hints that Yaz maybe isn’t especially popular also cut quite deep, Graham’s private moments of mourning are arguably the most memorable scenes from the entire episode – proving once again that Walsh is way more than just ‘that guy from “The Chase”’.

#1: Jack Robertson

Yes, he’s smug, self-important and an all-encompassing pillock. Yes, he’s the villain of the piece (even in a story centred on massive spiders). But his all-round detestability is what makes him such a spot-on side character. Played by Chris Noth – AKA Mr. Big – Robertson is an arrogant hotelier with a blatant disregard for other people – who also has his sights set on the White House. The not-so-thinly veiled political satire is pretty hard to miss, with Noth imbuing every scene he’s in with an unrelenting over-confidence. And perhaps it’s not the last we’ve seen of him. His assistant dies. His bodyguard dies. But, he gets off scot-free. He’s a dangerous man, but the Doctor has us covered.
