DOCTOR WHO THE IMPOSSIBLE ASTRONAUT

HE’S BACK AND IT’S DARKER THAN EVER.

WARNNG SPOILERS AHEAD.

THE RUMOURS ARE TRUE- SOMEONE DOES INDEED ALL OUT DIE AND IT’S NOT WHO YOU’D EXPECT. RIVER SONG IS BACK, NO REVELATION ON HER IDENTITY YET BUT A STRANGE SLIP THAT THE DAY THE DOCTOR KNOWS HER IT WILL KILL HER. IT SEEMS THE DOCTOR HAS LEFT THE PONDS BEHIND, REUNITING WITH THEM AFTER OVER 200 YEARS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE PRESENT, THIS SORT OF CLASHES WITH LAST YEAR WHERE THEY SEEMED TO BE GLAD TO BE RID OF THEIR OLD LIFE AND TRAVELLING ABOARD THE TARDIS ESPECIALLY AFTER THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE. MUST BE PART OF THE STORY ARC AND NOT SOME DAFT PLOT DEVICE ALA NO CYBERMEN SUCKED IN TO THE VOID, TIME REVERSED TO THE MOMENT OF THE TOCLAFANE AND ASSASSINATED PRESIDENT WHO SEEM TO BE ABSENT. PLEASE NO LAZINESS.

THE SILENCE ARE CREEPY WITH A BRILLIANT ABILITY AND THEIR SKULKING IN THE DARK WILL SEND KIDS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY INTO HIDING.

A NETWORK OF TUNNELS ALL OVER THE PLANET THAT NOBODY HAS NOTICED BEFORE, THE TARDIS LIKE TIME MACHINE FROM LAST YEAR’S EPISODE THE LODGER AND AMY’S SECRET AND THE DOCTOR WITH LAUREL AND HARDY.

THREADS ARE LAID AND THE MYSTERIOUS APPEARANCE OF AN ASTRONAUT IN A LAKE AND SPOOKY WAREHOUSE ALONG WITH THE BRILLIANT MARK SHEPPARD TRAVELLING ABOARD THE TARDIS, SOMETHING BIG IS HAPPENING THAT SEEMS TO STRETCH BACK TO LAST YEAR.

A BIT SLOW IN PLACES AND MOFFAT SEEMS TO HAVE AN INABILITY TO CRANK UP A GOOD CLIFFHANGER, MAYBE THE MUSIC WAS LACKING TO HELP RAISE IT TO A CRESCENDO BUT OVERALL IT LEAVES YOU WANTING MORE. RORY IS BRILLIANT AS EVER.

  1. On the River discussion with Rory, was that not a reference to ‘Silence In The Library’, in that she was looking at a different face. I think she meant emotionally kill her, even though she did die in that episode, so I could be barking up the wrong tree altogether. Liked the kid in the space suit angle though, very Wallace and Gromit, when is the penguin dressed as a chicken going to appear.
