Doctor Who night

It starts with a cassette tape. This must be a period piece.

That carpet. It looks 1980s. It looks a bit like my carpet.

"I've never been threatened with a chair leg before. ... Oh, all right, I tell a lie."

"I work in Town Planning. We're lining all the highways with trees so that invading armies can march in the shade."

... And now there's a restaurant full of Charlie McCarthys. Unless that isn't the right plural of 'Charlie McCarthy' and I should have typed "Charlies McCarthy". Or something like that.

"It's amazing. You've come up with a theory even more insane than what's actually happening."

And now they've found some Angels. Something around there is definitely picking up on nightmares.

"Every time the Doctor gets pally with someone I feel the urge to notify their next of kin."

"You think this is hell?
"Well, the whole 1980s hotel thing..."

"It's going to kill us all. How cool is that?"

That clown looks worryingly like it could be a future Doctor. Or possibly a hybrid of past Doctors. 6th and 7th?

"Why is it up to you to save us? Quite the god complex you've got there."

Again the gratuitous slow motion sequence ten minutes from the end of the show. I could get rather tired of this.

... Could the Doctor possibly be more obviously trying to snap Amy out of her faith in him?

Wait wait wait... the monster is a relative of the Nimons? I was sort of half hoping it would be an Aggedor... but really. Good grief. If they can bring back such rubbish characters as the Nimons, then why can't they bring back some of the interesting aliens?

Other final thought: Well, the show's been running for almost 50 years and the Doctor and company are still spending the better part of an entire episode running down corridors. They're just 1980s retro looking corridors now. Yes I said "1980s" and "retro" in the same sentence. Excuse me a moment...
