Doctor Who night [Sep. 28th, 2014|09:35 pm]
[mood |busybusy]
[music |Howling Bells - "Possessed"]

"Why is your face all coloured in?"

"Hardly anyone in the universe has that number."

So, tonight's episode is a bank robbery story. This could be a bit 'different'.

There's a bit much slow-motion running so far. Did the script run under time or something?

"No entry under any circumstances" isn't quite as impressive a sign as it should be if, the first time you see it, there's a timelord crawling out from behind it...

... This is a bit disappointing. The story's a bank robbery but, instead of a mystery, they're plotting it like a space invaders game.

"It's obvious that you've known him for a while." "Why?" "You're really good at excuses."

The Doctor actually tells the team to split up. That's different... normally he tells them not to, and they end up doing it anyway...

... And the Doctor is also fairly obviously the Architect behind it all

"What in the name of sanity is this?" "I'm taking a sanity judgement from the self-burner?"

... The Doctor is the Architect, but is acting on behalf of Kalabraxos in the first place? That was a bit less predictable.

"Calories consumed in the TARDIS have no effect." "Seriously?" "No. This is a time machine, not a medical facility."

It was, overall. There were some interesting ideas. Things about it were a bit... odd... but it wasn't done badly, just not as I expected. (I expected it to be more of a mystery and less having been plotted like one of those modern quest-story-type space invaders games).

Sometimes, unexpected is good in a show. It all depends on whether it's more towards the fresh, new approach, or the nasty surprise. {Smile, wink}
