Watch It Burn was the first part of the Bluesilver Series 3 Finale, succeeded by Fields of Despair. Some fans noted its similarity to the previous Bluesilver Series episodes Apocolypse and They Ride On The Wind in terms of it's nihilistic and dark themes.
As the strands of fate close around the TARDIS, The Doctor finds himself fighting fate and time itself. When he and his companions challenge the villainous Fal Neron on its stranglehold on society, they realise to win the fight, sacrifices must be made. But is a planet who wants them dead even worth saving?
