In the October 28 episode of Dr. Who, titled Arachnids in the UK, a group of spiders are lured into a vault. What happened to them after? Was the plan to lock them up and let them die of hunger or cannibalize each other?

Wikipedia article states:

To kill them humanely, the group lure the offspring into a panic room..

Was there a discussion in the film of this method, or it was assumed to be best course of action?

  • I wondered that too, as I watched it. I came to the conclusion that "lock them up & forget them" was some kind of "non-aggressive, acceptable policy" that I actually wasn't comfortable with in-universe or out-. I'm keen to see any enlightened answers to this.
