    I almost agree with that review…then I remember Amy’s Choice, how delightfully fresh I found Matt’s performance in the first two episodes, how the opening of The Time of Angels is more entertaining than anything we should ever dare to expect from a BBC production, how my love of red hair often manifests itself in the form of a recurring dream of Karen Gillan and I – how the two of us can hardly walk for days after we…both pull our backs during a manual handling meeting.

    Stephen Moffat is the main reason I watch Dr Who. I’ve loved everything he’s had a hand in, from Press Gang to Jekyll to Sherlock. The rest of this year’s Dr Who COULD be bad, but I think Moffat’s episodes will be awesome enough to make up for any sucking that may happen. Though the dolls in Mark Gatiss’ episode look very promising to me.

    Then again, I’ve just had a sausage roll from Gregg’s so I might just be in a chipper mood from that…

    Gaiman’s episode…I think it’s safe to say that’s the one we should be getting more than a tad excited about. Though I really realllly can’t wait for the opening ‘Astronaut’ 2-parter.

    Also, the best guest stars so far?? Mark Sheppard, Lily Cole, Sarah Smart, Marshall Lancaster, Suranne Jones, Michael Sheen, Alex Kingston (again, obviously), James Corden (yep, again), Hugh Bonneville…we are being seriously spoiled here!

    Somewhat annoyingly it would seem that when it was shown tonight on BBC 1 there was an extra shot, absent from the online version. Unfortunately, for anyone watching in England there was just a black screen for the opening 15 seconds or so.

    Some of the Penny Arcade Forum chaps have speculated that the Silents – if they are indeed the Silents – are based upon the Slender Man.

    Considering that bit of “folklore” actually originated from a “make up some creepy stories” thread on the Something Awful forums, it’d be pretty chuffing incredible if true.

    Now go to the BBC website and find the date and time so you can put it in your calender.

    Then let me know what to put in my calendar. Ta.

    Six *is* too early, you’re right. Admittedly, the ratings were good, apparently, when the show was on at 6pm last year, but if this year is going to be scarier, then it stands to reason that it wants to be on later.

    well I’m biased as I’m a big fan of doctor who. I have to say that I like matt smith as the doctor much more than steven moffat’s writing for the show which has been better on sherlock up til now. however, the stuff I’ve seen and heard concerning the series 6 looks much much much much better than series 5, so I hold out for Moffat. Besides mild criticism, I think its fantastic that anyones actually putting out great sci fi, what with dismal products such as outcasts, and brilliant shows like the blakes 7 remake and red dwarf being mooted over the years or put on the back burner.

    I enjoyed that a lot but i feel there was far too much packed into it. I kind of feel like ive watched another trailer and the main event is next week, which it is but i think a 90 minute episode would have been far better to start with.

    #111955

    I have to agree. Although my enjoyment was hampered by who I was watching it … My parents who insisted on, every time there was a plot twist, looking at each other while rolling their eyes in a “I could do better than that” way. Really irritated me throughout, so will have to have a second viewing on my own tonight, though I think it was a very interesting episode regardless, I just need to actually have a chance to ENJOY it. Am I rambling? Well I like rambling. :)

    #111956

    That should read “who I was watching it with”. Didn’t spot the error in time.

    #111957
    Alex
    Participant

    Well my comment doesn’t seem to be showing up on URP! so i’ll put it here. I greatly enjoyed that. The 45 minutes seemed to fly by, and even with the large amount squeezed in some of the scenes seemed longer than last time, allowing the dialogue to breath more. For example, I particularly enjoyed the moment between Rory and River where we can dwell briefly on a relationship we are all familiar with and be reminded of why it is essentially at heart a tragedy.

    As for opening with a two parter, well I believe that it paid off. I’m certainly more interested about episode 2 than I have been in some considerable time and it would seem that it has allowed Moffat to set up various plot strands for the rest of the series as in TEH last year. The only thing that slightly concerns me is how the average audience might react to starting with a timey-whimey plot right off the bat.

    I’ll reserve my judgement on the Silents until we really see them fully next week, but the concept is a nice play on the idea of a perception filter that I don’t believe has been used before. It was also nice to see Moffat dealing with something a bit more abstract rather than taking something from everyday life and making it scary. It’s a technique that has worked wonders for him, but variety keeps things fresh and this was most welcome.

    #111958

    I’ll watch it again at some point as I didn’t really give it my full attention. It did seem reminiscent of the usual Moffat ingredients; timey-wimey, the spooky child, even the space-suits echoed Silence in the Library. And it’s great that Moffat is interested in the more complex effects of time-travel in a way that RTD never seemed bothered, but it is beginning to get a little repetitive.

    Incidentally, I’m staying with my parents this weekend and, while they watched the Tennant and Eccelston years, they don’t seem to have an interest in the show since the Moffat/Smith takeover. It’s definitely not as accessible as it was and opening with a plot far more complex than Rose, New Earth, Smith and Jones, Partners in Crime and even The Eleventh Hour may be a mis-step.

    #111960

    I was disappointed.

    I found a lot of the interaction between the characters was tired and Alex Kingston’s hamming it up annoying. And the Doctor really pissed me off in this episode. Whether it’s constantly telling us how great he is or overly enthusiastic hugging while saying patronising things like ‘And RORY the ROMAN!’, he really got on my nerves.

    I found his approach to time travel and crisis situations just too careless and unreal. Landing in the Oval Office, appearing in films, treating an attempt to escape from prison with a friend like a game… the guy is out of control in this episode. This guy is Time Lord Cocky Idiot, recklessly blundering in ensuring things happen in the most madcap way while his followers say how much they love him in the corner of the room. It was almost Doctor Who self-parody at times with the hat-associated eccentricities (I’m really sick of the Fez), little history jokes, ridiculously powerful intuition and that gag about who has to explain the Tardis is bigger on the inside. I hope that’s the last time we see that one. I know it makes sense but I think it’s dangerous to make fun of the conventions of the show like that. Of course when the episode got out of the Oval Office things got a lot more interesting and the second episode will give The Doctor a chance to be more serious but for the first half-hour I was really worried.

    Also, did Moffat forget Nixon was in the scene? It was bizarre watching Everett take charge of the scene, while the President said almost nothing. I think also that Everett III bloke really needed a character moment before he got taken by the guys at the bar, he’s just a nothing character walking around aimlessly.

    3/5 for me because by the end of the episode I was very excited about how it all would come together.

    I managed to completely miss this! Forgot it was on, actually. (The week went past so quickly.)

    It’s okay, I’ll catch it later.

    #111963

    I took the Doctor’s enthusiasm to be a sort of juxtaposition of the Future Doctor’s tiredness. His face when he went down to see the spaceman… He looked really, really sad to me. So I appreciated the over-enthusiastic and youthful Doctor turning up afterwards… and I think Matt Smith did a great job this episode. So many layers to his Doctor.

    Meh, just my opinion. Thought I’d throw it out there.

    I haven’t rewatched the episode without my parents yet, but it’s growing on my anyway. It certainly have an emotional effect on me, and I’m definitely going to watch the concluding part.

    Oh yeah and I didn’t find Alex Kingston hammy at all, I thought she just had good chemistry with the rest of the cast. They all seem very comfortable in their roles, which I never take to be a bad thing.

    I thought that was incredible. Anyone who isn’t left terrified and excited by that episode (on many, many different levels, not least what it means for the show as a whole) just wasn’t paying attention.

    It *was* very packed but it was handled well. Everything felt very out of control and chaotic, which was fitting considering the circumstances.

    What generic says about the contrast between the two Doctors is spot on, in my opinion. Matt Smith was amazing.

    I’ve just read a review that’s going to up on Unlimited Rice Pudding at some point soon. I strongly recommend you guys read it, because Julian Hazeldine nails exactly why I loved this episode, better than my half asleep brain can put into words at the moment.

    PS: Who’s in the space suit? My money is on River.

    Seems most likely doesn’t it? The reason for her being in prison perhaps? Because she killed a Timelord – somewhat of an endangered species – the prison sentence was longer than her life so they started the sentence before she committed the crime… Timey-wimey? I’m probably wrong… nowt new there :oP

    I’d like to see a curveball there though and it be Amy in the suit.

    #111992

    Participant

    SPOILERS AND THEORIES…






    I suggested Amy in the Spacesuit.Dunno why,just thought it’d be different,especially after she was so upset. Amy and River having the same thought about wanting to get rid of the Spaceman in 1969, but not being able to change established events…maybe Amy shooting the Astronaut eventually necessitates her having to ‘be’ the Spaceman and kill the Doctor? Just a throwaway suggestion and one I don’t really believe for a second.
    Rory had a great episode,really developing as a character beyond ‘the comedy boyfriend’. River was good too,more engaging as a character, rather than just being ‘the mysterious River Song’.
    As I’ve mentioned on URP’s comments thread,Amy’s ‘revelation’ at the end. Was a surprise *because* we were expecting it to be something different – that would have been so obvious,so normal,we expected The Moff to throw something else at us.So,the double bluff,and it was as surprising as anything else.Cracking stuff.
    Non-plot points – I approve of the BBC logo’s incorporation into the opening titles – a hell of a lot better than that mess they shoved on the DVDs of series five. Also – while the caption and tribute show for Lis Sladen were great (the CBBC tribute made me cry, again – my SFX TARDIS sound card went off on it’s own as ‘She’ started at the end),I was very surprised not to see anything for Nicholas Courtney.However,they may be dedicating an episode to each of them, so I’ll wait and see if there’s something next week.

    Oh, and I made a point of *not* watching with the parents! My mum does nothing but moan about Matt Smith, and my Dad’s as deaf as a post, and misses half of it.

    Odd. I watched it with my dad, and he had a good time, despite not having a clue about what was going on.

    I like the new regeneration glow FX. Nice, almost like a liquid. And Matt has such an impressive range of emotions. But I’m glad Arthur Darvill is a permanant fixture to the crew now. Rory is just so wonderfully normal, it balances them all out.

    Ah, not long now until we can all judge the story of this two-parter properly! Oh and I got round to watching it again without my parents. It was awesome, in my opinion. The cliff hanger I was a bit disappointed with at first, thinking “the Doctor isn’t about to die or anything” but then instantly felt ashamed for that thought. The cliff hanger was brilliant because it was a new sort of cliff hanger for Dr Who (I THINK anyway, I just tried to think of similar ones but it is late and I’m only up because I’ve had a big bottle of coke and I intend to sleep through the bloody wedding tomorrow). Oh yeah, and obviously Rory and River are in deep smeg.

    Like I said earlier, you’ve got to love the way the story is so well resolved (resolved actually hardly seems the right word, but hey), yet it leaves us thinking ‘what the fuck?’

    SPOILERS. PROBABLY.






    Here’s something that’s puzzling me a little – and bearing in mind I’ve only watched tonight’s the once, and I’ve probably missed something while getting ice-cream down my t-shirt – but at the end of last week’s episode, River shouted ‘Rory!’… Now, that *wasn’t* resolved, was it? Or does Rory “sometimes” remembering his 2000 years with the Pandorica have something to do with it?

    I think all that happened there is that she was warning him about the Silence being behind him, and they both ran away. I need to watch it again before it’s 100% clear in my head, though.

    As for Rory’s memories, I took that as an implication that he was being stalked by Silence for 2,000 years, and that’s why he can only remember bits of it.

    I liked it a lot, but it was rather like skim-reading a good book. There was an so much going on and I felt like there was huge gaps between each sequence. The ending was incredible but we’re surely not expected to believe (even as a Red Herring) that the Doctor has had a go on Pond.

    So presumably it’s because of the Silence that Amy can’t remember the Daleks?

    Silence isn’t the only thing that’s going to fall though. The ratings are going to take a dive, as this isn’t the mainstream Doctor Who that RTD cultivated. You can argue that I should give the general public more credit, but while this was brilliantly produced, it was also batshit crazy.

    Next weeks episode needs to be both great and completely accessible to an audience who haven’t seen this two parter.

    Never has a thought of my own been summed up so correctly yet crudely.

    I’ve a feeling it will be completely standalone, as will anything non-Moffat-penned, I shoul imagine. I loved the bit in yesterday’s episode where the Doctor said “shall we go and resolve this story arc, or shall we have a few non-connected adventures first to keep the kids happy?”

    Singingpotato1979 (I always call her that, even in bed) pointed out last night that the little girl could be Jenny. Having thought about it more, I think it could be The Doctor, and that’s how they get out of his death. Somehow.

    Absolutely. It brought to mind a line from The Office (US) which I watched immediately before Doctor Who. Steve Carrel’s final scene and he says to the “documentary crew” : “You guys will let me know if this ever airs, right?”. Almost excused the last two seasons.

    Has anyone suggested that the little girl is The Rani yet?

    I see Kevin O’Sullivan hasn’t mentioned Doctor Who in his Sunday Mirror column today. Probably too confusing for him.
    He has, however, given a little ‘bubble’ over to Don’t Scare The Hare. Nuff Said.
