The Zygon Invasion Some bullshit
Can't we just let Zygons be Zygons?
— Literally everybody on the internet.
Spoilers: Just this once, everybody lives.
Except for dozens if not hundreds of extras and off-screen denizens of New Mexico.
You were the chosen one! It was said you would destroy Moffat, not join him! Bring quality to the show, not leave it in darkness! You were my showrunner, Harness, I loved you!
Fuck, even Doctor Who is doing a zombie apocalypse now?
I wonder who was behind this.

The Zygon Inversion by BRAVO HARNESS is the shocking sequel to The Zygon Invasion, where it's revealed that, actually, everything was fine. It stars Peter Capaldi as Sir Dr. Basil "Disco" Bad Penny Funkenstein XII, Jenna Coleman as Zygon Pancakes, and Osgood as tumblr.

Plot

Super fuckin' edgy, man, but it was GOAT. Contains a bit where the Doctor shits all over SJWs, thus continuing the delicate status quo required to ensure the show never examines its ability to write female character and token minorities.

It also turns out the Doctor thought Mutually Assured Destruction was a jolly good idea. Just as long as the power remains in British hands, that is, all the rest of the countries are foreigners. And by Mutal Assured Destruction I mean that one side was promised some chemical weapon and another - a convenient way to pain bullseye on their compatriots.

In the end, Doctor made passionate speech that homose... I mean Zygons should stay in the closet, that chief Zygon should learn to forgive humans for making her kill them, and left Kate "sexist with no empathy" Stewart in charge, complacently thinking she can wipe out all her guests with a push of a button. Then he left the scene, leaving things exactly as they used to be, with no mechanisms to prevent another spark of senseless interracial violence. Have I ever told you the definition of insanity?

And to think. The only reason any of this happened was because it was cheaper not to have a bunch of people in Zygon suits constantly walking around present day in upcoming stories.

In an interview with Dr. Phil, Harness confessed that the original ending to the episode had Osgood and Kate put on trial for treason. Dammit, Moffat, you couldn't let us have one good thing?

Reception

The isles are still reverberating with cries that Harness has ruined politics forever. ISIS, meanwhile, had a predictible response to the episode.
