Doomsday [Jul. 9th, 2006|11:18 am]
Tony Grist
A lot of Whovians hated Rose and her family. John Pertwee, they protest,  never got all huggy and kissy with his companions and their hangers-on. I take the line that the new show is a reinvention not a reproduction and personally I rather like having my emotions played like a zither.

I guessed the denouement. I knew there had to be some reason for introducing that parallel universe and by the end (or rather, just before the end) I'd worked out what it was.  I've liked the story arc in this season.
 
And even though I knew how it was going to pan out, I liked the way it was done.  It could have been slushy and unconvincing and groan-making and it wasn't. Russell T Davies is a damn good writer.

I'll miss Billie Piper. She's marvellous.

The old time Who was largely thrills and spills and chases- lots of chases- with the odd one-liner tossed in. It was a kid's show and there was little emotional depth to it. Russell T Davies has taken it to a new place with all the stuff about loneliness and relationship.

I like what he's doing with the show, but a lot of Whovians seem to hate it. They particularly loathe and detest Rose Tyler.

Oh well, they won't have her to kick about any more.

Girl in the Fireplace would be the stand out episode for me this time round with School Reunion coming in a close second.
