Resplendent in corals, golds, and warm tones, watching Jodie Whittaker's Doctor (wo)man the controls was a heartbursting moment, a reminder of how important this Doctor truly is.

A simple mystery to solve, a quest for knowledge-it's pure Doctor Who, at its core. If that's the sort of thing this new era of the show wants to chase, by all means: hop in that shiny new TARDIS and chase away.

But what is interesting is that "The Ghost Monument" manages to take a concept that's already been done dozens of times with other people and jazz it up into something that feels like we haven't seen it before. Or at least, not entirely.
