Closing Time is the twelfth episode of Series 6 and was written by Gareth Roberts. It's a sequel to The Lodger from Series 5 and features the return of Craig Owens and the introduction of his kid Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All.

Marks the first appearance of the Cybermats in NuWho.

Plot

Eleven (Matt Fezzington) is going on a "farewell tour" before his impending death and visits his ex-wife Craig. They discover there's a Cybermen gangrape fuck-fest at a local department store and go to join. Craig gets cyber-raped but everything turns out okay thanks to The Power of Love.

It's also, without a doubt, the most homoerotic episode of Doctor Who since The Last of the Time Lords.

Reception

Pretty comfy.
