Alternative title: Why Moffat Who is Poetry

Welcome to the meta café! Although this time it's more The Poetry Café (not that there's ever much difference). What I mean is, this post is like a follow-up to The Hollow Men and will be formatted in a similar way: I.e. first up is the poem/imagery, which will then be followed by lengthy, complex and in-depth notes. No really, this is enormous. (I will also write a more regular meta post later, with all the stuff that does not fit into this very specific reading.) Also, although this meta mostly centers on The Doctor Falls, it meanders through a lot of S10, and even further back. And as always, Promethia owns at least half of this.

But first, here is the second half of the fifth and final part of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, as filtered through Moffat Who:

Meta café is... open. (Can it be? This has taken me most of the day/week!) So make sure you have a nice cup of tea and some refreshments as this is about 7000 words long. (Everything is connected...) With endless thanks to Promethia, as always. ♥

So, last weekend was very very busy, only saw this episode on Monday and have been vaguely attempting to write something in the days that followed.

It's a lovely, lovely episode, and deserves far better than these scattered thoughts, but I know tonight's episode will be quite something so felt the need to post SOMETHING, before the story moved on.

So here it is. Very basic, barely cover a quarter of what I'd like, but it's better than nothing... Oh and a great deal is Promethia's, literally.

This has been SUCH A BUSY WEEKEND. Although in a good way.

For now, the brief thoughts I wrote down on The Empress of Mars.

Here be Spoilers )

I feel this only addresses about three things, but it's already Thursday and my head just won't wrap itself around things the way they should. So further thoughts might follow. Please talk to me about stuff you think I should look at!

Weekly Meta Cafe is hereby open. :)

Since Promethia wrote a fabulous post mining all the imagery, I am just sharing a few quick notes.

So, last week Promethia wrote about Knock Knock, which was great.

This week... Well, I've been trying to slowly re-boot my brain. This weekend is the first one where we've not been busy since - I'm not even sure. Anyway, it's not rebooted enough to actually write anything. I've been talking about it with Promethia, but since her brain is working, and mine is not, these are her thoughts. Roughly edited into different subjects areas.

Although TONIGHT I shall be sat in front of the TV, watching in real time and hopefully being able to flail shortly afterwards. :)

Anyway, what is under the cut is ALLLLL [personal profile] promethia_tenk. (Times like these it is VERY HANDY to hare your brain with someone else...)

Here be spoilers )

This has been a very very busy weekend and after watching 'Knock Knock' this was pretty much my only thought:

YES THIS COUNTS AS A SPOILER )

Thankfully the other half of my brain, the always brilliant [personal profile] promethia_tenk, HAS WRITTEN A POST, which talks about All The Things. :D :D :D

Go & read. I doubt I'll be 'writing' anything more than what's under the cut.

(My parents have been visiting for the past two weeks. They left this morning. Next weekend it's my sister-in-law's wedding. So yeah, RL eating me alive.)

Well, my immediate reaction was pure delight. But as I started writing down all my thoughts, I realised I would have to split them up, as they were veering in two very different directions. So, first up comes the serious post. Because the show did one of the things I was most hoping for: It got political. And how!

Thin Ice Review Part 1 (the serious part) )

HAPPY FANNISH POST HERE!!

Thoughts on 'The Pilot' and 'Smile', whilst also looking back to Clara.
