The Time Of Angels [Apr. 25th, 2010|10:14 am]
Tony Grist
That was pretty good.

Basically a retread of Silence in the Library

As if Moffat were dissatisfied with Silence in the Library and wanted to make it tighter and scarier.

He even reuses that creepy idea where a person can be dead but still talk to you.

I think the weeping Angels probably are the scariest Monsters ever.

I like the old married couple vibe between River and the Doctor.

Some great in-jokes- like the iconic panty-groany noise the Tardis makes when it lands being down to the Doctor forgetting to  disengage the brakes. We always suspected it, but now we know; it's not the machine that's at fault it's the driver.

Alex Kingston is a treat. She always is.

But if Moffatt is reworking old episodes this early, what are the implications for the show's future? Has he got anything new up his sleeve?

I missed the beginning:-((

But I did enjoy the latter part, so much so that I'll be going back to watch it On Demand...

It's the best of the new season- thus far.

I *loved* his imitation of the TARDIS noise! And you're spot on about the retread, and it is worrisome, though it did give me a chance to notice the graceful, totally unstereotypical lack of jealousy of the two female characters (cos companions are always potential, uh, companions, Donna notwithstanding). The dynamic between the two women was kind, even sort of chummy. Makes me like Amy Pond so much more than I have thus far.

Yes - contrast and compare Rose and Sarah Jane, who got on fine in the end but only by way of some pretty tiresome cattiness.

Amy came into her own with her teasing of the Doctor. I'm warming to her.

But what was going on with that injection River gave Amy? Is River friend or foe? We're being prompted to believe that she's the Doctor's future wife, but I'm beginning to think that that's a smokescreen.

Spoilers! :)

I can't recall whether the injection took place before or after the sand poured out of the corner of Amy's eye. Might be a clue, if it wasn't part of the Angels' terror tactics....

I think it was afterwards.
