Loved how it felt like one of the old serials, the whole ‘three locations and four characters on the whole planet’ thing, it had that wonderful claustrophobic feeling I always associate with Doctor Who (and Sapphire & Steel, come to think of it).
“Biting’s excellent. It’s like kissing only there’s a winner.”
“Don’t we all?” Perfect delivery by Matt Smith.
“Only when we’re alone.” Another great delivery.
“I am thinking that all my sisters are dead, and that we are looking at their corpses.”
“Look at that, perfect, what could possibly go wrong?” *sproing*
Rory is the pretty one.
I have to admit, I got all, ooh, nostalgic at the old control room.
“Did you wish really hard?”
“Shut up, not like that…”
“Hello, Doctor. It’s so very, very nice to meet you.” *sob*
Doctor goggles YAY.
Not So Yay
Basically everything with Amy and Rory stuck in the Tardis. It had potential but turned out to be kind of dull.
On a related note, I’m getting pretty sick of the false tension in Doctor Who. Stop pretending you’re going to kill Rory! THAT CARD HAS BEEN PLAYED.
“I love you.” Blech. I thought they were doing very well to avoid that but no, there it was, snuck in at the end. Boo.
No eyepatch lady! I thought the bit where Rory and Amy were running around would’ve been a perfect place to sneak one in, but no. So slightly disappointed about that.
Not a great episode, but not a bad one either. Some nice lines and although The Doctor getting to talk to the Tardis didn’t quite live up to expectations it was still fun and emotional. Also, “The only water in the forest is the river” … Song? Ooh wait a minute, wait just a minute, “FOREST of the Dead”? Hints that the ‘final meeting’ between River Song and The Doctor in that episode might not have been quite so FINALLY final after all? Interesting …
Other than that, I don’t really have much to say aside from ‘onto the next’! Which doesn’t look particularly spectacular, to be honest, but let’s just wait and see, shall we?
