But could the Doctor and her friends solve The Tsuranga Conundrum?

The episode started with a bang and Team TARDIS woke up somewhere far different from your typical local Accident & Emergency department.
that’s a very futuristic hospital #DoctorWho

They also met another patient who was in the family way but not of the gender you might’ve expected.

Although it turned out not to be a hospital at all and that meant they were travelling away from the TARDIS.
Can she stop losing the bloody Tardis? It’s starting to look careless. #DoctorWho

There was also a bit of confusion about the device Astos provided the Doctor.
Am I going crazy or did he just say to the doctor to take a condom with her ?????? #DoctorWho

When the alien creature was encountered by the Doctor, the reaction of viewers was not entirely one of terror.

Comparisons were also made to two other creatures from TV and Film.
This monster on #DoctorWho is just Stitch. This is like an adult version of Lilo & Stitch.

A theme was certainly starting to develop in The Tsuranga Conundrum.

Others picked up on some other issues with the man about to give birth, despite still wearing his trousers.
Why has he still got his trousers on? Where is the baby actually going to come out of? ? #DoctorWho
— Louise (@Little__louise) November 4, 2018
This is like Daphne giving birth with her tights on.#doctorwho

However there was also some action. Yaz caught the Pting and gave it a swift boot to the delight of many.

#doctorwho The most Doctor Whoey episode of the new series. Top stuff!
— Ross Smith (@RossSmith101) November 4, 2018
Throughly enjoyed that, best of the series so far #DoctorWho
— John Edwards (@EuclidianBoxes) November 4, 2018
Probably the weakest one of the series so far. However, still the main message of the show seeping through – hope overcomes, life finds a way, and even when one life ends, another begins.
— Tony D. (@tonypdickinson) November 4, 2018
Well that was slightly underwhelming episode. Next week better be more interesting. #DoctorWho
