The Doctor and Rose find themselves up against the Hulk Doctor as he releases the Sin Eaters and prepares for a slaughter.

The concluding chapter to the Sin Eaters begins with The Doctor, who now resembles an angered Hulk version of himself, as he attempts to kill everyone in the facility. Director Highsmith contends with her colleague’s deaths as she discovers the patients she cures go on to commit even worse crimes.

More so, the character development is brilliantly on point; The Doctor’s trademark ‘Fantastic’ and ‘For my next trick’ lines fully form his incarnation with energy and charisma. The narration that Rose takes on is a clever way to see what she thinks of The Doctor’s actions.

Writer Cavan Scott has rather spectacularly written a dark and compelling story with layers of mystery, fear and horror. He captures each character with poise and ambition as he explores their development as new elements of the plot are revealed.

He understands the characters and knows how to tease us about The Doctor’s psychological state. There’s an invigorating process that the script produces which is oddly comforting; forcing us to face up to aspects of The Doctor which scare us.

Artist Adriana Melos is truly talented at experimenting with shapes and angles. The Doctor facing his Hulk self is a sensational piece of art that is intimating and engrossing. The frightening image of the Hulk Doctor’s hugely terrifying smile produces chills. The more intimate shots of Director Highsmith are moving and saddening as she listens to her colleagues being killed.

Part 2 of the Sin Eaters is a masterpiece of a story that is dark, ambitious, terrifying and compelling. New twists and revelations contribute to the story’s unpredictability and gripping plot. The characters are three-dimensional which adds to the story’s strong capability to shock and excite us.
