"I'm the Doctor... Are You My Mummy?"

Last week was crazy so I didn't have a chance to post my thoughts on Mummy on the Orient Express.

This was classic Doctor Who at its best. We had a horrific villain straight from classic horror movies, but with a twist. Only the victims can see the Mummy.

What starts out as a final hurrah for Clara's travels with the Doctor, complete with 1920's wardrobe, quickly turns into a trap. As the body count starts to mount, Clara is trapped with another passenger while the Doctor is roped into putting his effort towards solving the mystery of the Mummy.

But this is Doctor Who so the Mummy is not what he appears and the Doctor has to unravel that mystery before the Mummy kills everyone.

One of the highlights is the Engineer, who seems companion material, but turns down the Doctor's offer.

This is probably one of the best episodes of the season and definitely needs to be watched again.
