275: Blink 2017 Edition (Extemis, The Pyramid at the End of the World & The Lie of the Land)

As opposed to Blink 2019 edition.

It’s surprising to me that an episode so clearly about propaganda actually didn’t cause much of a splash at all when it landed. Kind of seems like everyone shrugged and looked right past it, even though it explicitly mentions a few people that this episode is clearly sending up. Weird. It’s Extremis, The Pyramid at the End of the World and The Lie of the Land written by Steven Moffat, Peter Harness, and Toby Whithouse and aired on May 20 and 27 and June 3, 2017.
