Doctor Who XXXIII(7).0.ii: Pond Life, part two

August 28th, 2012 (12:42 pm)

Part two of Pond Life is a lot simpler and sweeter than yesterday's instalment. We have an even more childlike Doctor than on Monday, possessed by one single obsession and not really understanding the adult world (represented by the bedroom) which Amy and Rory inhabit. The throws forward to (I presume) 'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship' work well both as teasers and as reminders that the Doctor's sense of 'now' is not that of those who experience linear time.

:( True, though I prefer to think of it as a variant on Pertwee's Yeti-on-a-loo-in-Tooting Bec.

Well, I suppose it supports the theory that that would cause embarrassment rather than fear.

... and today Chibnall seems to be advocating slavery (but, hey, it's a male Ood, so it isn't misogynistic slavery). I dread to think what will happen in the final part...

I've still not seen it, and must do so for the sake of completeness...
