After last week’s lumpen middle, I was really hoping that The Lie of the Land would tie up this trilogy of episodes in a neat bow. Instead, the storyline feels like an incoherent mess even as Pearl Mackie’s performance as Bill continues to shine.
Extremis, I was willing to be charitable about The Pyramid at the End of the World: its slightly wobbly plot seemed to offer wiggle room, at least, for a return to the simulation machine or an equally dramatic conclusion with The Lie of the Land, the third act of the Monks’ storyline. Instead, the simulated world simply fizzles out, Doomsday is avoided, and Bill’s imaginary mum saves the day.
