Looking forward to new Who

April 3rd, 2010 (05:26 pm)

Taking a quick break from making enough of my flat visitable before Oxford DocSoc turn up... I'm expecting a slight change of tone, already clear from the change of colour palette from the RTD era. Amy could be (in the excised words of the Abigail-Master) a "psychological minefield" - I expect her to be surrounded by symbols of maturation like a fairytale princess. The eleventh Doctor will be confident and inventive and energetic. The storytelling will be more structured than it was under RTD, less reliant on taking viewpoint characters and telling a story through their experiences whether or not those experiences make much sense, though that method did work at its best (which was a lot of the time).

Geronimo!

Some interesting ideas, there, especially about Amy. If it's anything like as cleverly put-together as you're anticipating, I shall be very happy.

I am optimistic, based on what we saw... an Amy in revolt against her fairytaleness, but never having had the chance to embrace it...

I ended up being introduced to the game Dominion afterwards by ayaron and PlayerKing, so haven't had time to review yet... tomorrow, I hope, in-between essay marking.
