Seems like a good approach. And I have this strong suspicion that this is an episode that we're going to end up having a lot more to say about by the end of the season.
Yeah, that's it. I can't quite step back far enough to see it all.
Yeah, major portions of what you've written are basically saying that, but over the course of today it kinda snapped in my brain: that's it. That's the one point I'd want to make about this episode, above any other.
Enevarim just summed it up thusly, after reading your comment:
"Whithouse brings not peace, but a sword."
I absolutely love that.
Because it is Doctor Who by numbers. It is a very nice Doctor Who story. In an episode that explicitly tells us over and over to question the narratives we're being handed.
Me toooooooo <3 At this point I'm thinking he should probably never be given the reins of the show (waaaaay too depressing), but I think the show does benefit from letting him in to savage everything from time to time . . .
And making everyone cross! >:)
Yes. Well put--I think that's exactly it. Whithouse has upped his game: two complicated, multi-faceted monsters to mirror the Doctor.
Which is probably why it's so impossible to size it up properly.
(*snort* just remembered Twelve to Clara: Why've you got three mirrors? It is because your face is so wide?)
One way or another, we are getting through this week!!
The exit polls are promising!! (And I shall now go to bed and SLEEP.)
Oh. I did. And I did =D
I saw! :D
