‘Dark Water’ should have been the penultimate episode of the season, justifying the irritating pseudo-story arc with Missy, Heaven and the Promised Land. Instead this story was so bad that the above framework was all that I wrote before leaving this review, neglected, in my drafts folder for a year.
