There’s no doubt this new “Who Crew” is doing a bang-up job. For the most part, fans and critics agree that Doctor Who has found new life. Part of that new life is focusing on everyone more as a team instead of just “companions”.
If there has been one complaint, it’s that the character of Yaz hasn’t really been fleshed out. Sure, we saw her family and even the inside of her home, but what about Yaz herself? Well, next week brings another chance when the gang visits Pakistan, 1947 where we meet Yaz’ grandmother.
This episode is another opportunity to give Mandip Gill more to do with her character. Hopefully soon we’ll know as much about Yaz as we do about her family tree!
