The goddamn River Song, that's who.

Hello Sweety! )

well that was over surprisingly quickly - best episode yet, but I needs MOAR! Will be very interested to see how Moffat handles the opening of the next episode seeing as how RTD's run largely involved sudden Agatha Christie style deus ex machina being used to quickly deal with the cliffhangers - will moffatiem be different? Need to watch it again to allow the slashgoggles get a proper bead on amy/river as well.

A very good episode, chills that multiplied, characterisation was very good, plot holes minimal (so far) and well placed lulz - nothing to really go against this show at all.

So next week will suck! /fannish optimism

Amelia + River.

I'm looking at you femslashers, and have certain expectations of you all.

Don't let me down.

It was an okay episode, the impression that the series was required by higher ups to bring the daleks back in a shiny new toy-friendly form is left upon the mind of the viewer, but it's not a bad episode per se - if this is the worst that moffatiem has in store for us, then this season will still be made of awesome - though if this is one of the better episodes we're screwed. The trouble is that the companions and everyone else actually kind of get pushed to the side, and technobabble, mcguffins and CGI set peices that don't involve a great deal of interaction with the actual cast are the focus of the episode, and the daleks failed to inspire fear, loathing or hatred, they acted mainly out of self defence or due to them not really grasping that earth didn't have ICBMs or nukes yet, and thus the human race might survive a single bombing raid focused on london - lots of stuff was like that and you get the impression very much that it was an attempt at putting 2 gallons of tension in a 1 gallon episode, and lots of things spilling over and not really doing anything or fitting and the rationales for them not really making any sense. Lots of stuff just seemed to happen and occur, and dramatically that doesn't really work. But the bits that did work? Those worked HARD.

non-white character deaths for this entire season = 1, total deaths for this season = 5, so the COC/White Character death ratio is 1:4, a better than average ratio actually (a practically unheard of one actually). Cue the dailyfail declaring reverse racism.

[personal profile] pocketmouse has a theory.

It isn't midgets. One might even say it is the sideverse of midgets.

It is definately spoilery for The Beast Below.

Congratulations everyone who simultaneously tried to watch the new who on the iplayer at the same time, you have just made the iplayer go wurnk and fall over. *slow clap*

SUCCESS! ! ! ! ! ! !

And we all depend on the Spoilers Below... )

Hmm, not brillig, might be brilliger on the rewatch, Amie makes some weird assumptions about the doctor that, while spot on, aren't quite justified by the amount of time they've known each other. Doctor is still grumpy and judgemental deep down, but did you see that wobbly look on his face when she looked like she wanted to leave him? Emotionally Vulnerable Doctor IS Emotionally Vulnerable, aww.

Though I must say, the bit where he killed that prostitute and then said "somedays you get to kill a whore" was a bit OOC imho.

I felt that bringing the daleks back again (again) in the very first episode was a bit meh, and having the Doctor just rip out Davros' heart through his chest with his bare hands was a bit much. But at least the doctor and Amelia just did it on that table already instead of having UST lurking in the background all season.

Actual spoilers beneath the cut.

Not actual cowboys of course, though that does happen. )
