– Yes, although then the Toclafane and the god complex dent that again, so that she’s tensing and readying herself to stop him if necessary. There’s the wonderful sentence of Lamia’s about the relation of the two Time Lords to the Captain, and the tension in that mix, but there is also the tension between the two Time Lords who are trying hard to figure everything out – it’s like a poem or a multivariate equation or a sprung and balanced dance floor, this chapter.
Not least because the “god complex” accusation could be thrown at either the Captain or the Seeker, and they would probably both argue that the characterization was fair enough but that they were doing it for the best of everybody so it was quite all right acceptable for them to have a god complex. And obviously we’re not supposed to agree with the Captain but I’m still not sure whether we’re ever supposed to agree with the Seeker. Looking forward to more Saba chapters exploring this eventually…
