Much like when a sports team pours “all you’ve got” into a big win or a student studies for days and exhausts themselves in passing a big test, letdowns are prone to occur after a big event. Whether it’s the fault of the people in charge for not being able to try and harder or the external observer for expecting a higher level of greatness that can’t be sustained, the fact is that these things do happen. I am, of course, referencing the most recent Doctor Who two-parter “The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion” as the “big win,” which leaves this week’s standalone episode, “Sleep No More,” as the aforementioned letdown.
