The Gallifrey Times have seen Series 7, Episode 4: The Power Of Three and have put our spoiler-free preview together:
After the brilliant story of A Town Called Mercy which was of course set in the American Wild West, The Power Of Three is set back in boring old modern day. But this episode is not boring! Chris Chibnall, who also wrote the crazy Dinosaurs On A Spaceship pens this adventure, and this episode is also pretty mad! (Maybe whatever Chris was on when writing Dinosaurs On A Spaceship had worn off a bit by the time he wrote this episode!)
The story starts off showing Amy & Rory and how they are coping in their 'normal' lives without The Doctor. The couple discuss that they have two lives, and they must choose which one they want. However, 10 months after A Town Called Mercy, The Doctor returns to actually live with the Ponds to investigate the millions of black cubes that have invaded Earth overnight.
|What exactly is inside these|
In charge of the cubes occurrence is Kate Stewart, a scientific advisor from UNIT. Jemma Redgrave plays this character fantastically well and Kate is made to be such a loveable person by Chris Chibnall.

heart warming Kate Stewart
|Kate, The Doctor and Amy.|
This episode has been brilliantly written, and I think from now on we can expect all episodes written by Chris Chibnall to have some wacky scenes and some humorous dialogue which we will all enjoy.
I'm sure you will enjoy The Power Of Three as we near the end of the relationship between The Doctor and Amy & Rory.
The Gallifrey Times Rating 9/10
