Don't fuck with Eleven.

Amy's hole

The Hungry Earth is the eighth episode of Series 5 and was written by Chris Chinballer.

It's the first of a two-parter concluding with Cold Blood and features the return of the Silurians (last seen in 1984's Warriors of the Deep).

Story Edit

Eleven, Amy and Rory visit Wales and discover a mining operation that's going wrong. Amy falls down a hole and the Doctor discovers the Silurians are behind it all. They technically don't need to fight since it's totally obvious that the humans didn't mean any harm, but they fight anyway because plot.

Reception Edit

People only really hate this one because "MUH SILURIAN REDESIGN", or because it's Chibbers.
