Vincent And The Doctor [Jun. 5th, 2010|09:14 pm]
Tony Grist
We'd all like to do that for Vincent, wouldn't we!

I rate episodes of Dr Who by the degree to which they move me. This one moved me to tears- and goes straight into my top ten.

Tony Curran- lovely. And what a deft touch to have Scottish= Dutch.

Bill Nighy- clever casting.

Loved the chicken monster.

Just one criticism: that churchyard- with its yew trees and 18th century box tombs- could only be English/Welsh.

I missed it again!

I'll catch it on demand later on in the week - when it's raining...

IMHO it's the best episode this season.

I missed the Eleventh Doctor with Bill Nighy?

Argh!

Nighy has a very small role- I guess he did it as a favour to Richard Curtis- but he's perfect.

I'll keep an eye on BBC America. I got behind after the fourth episode and decided to wait until the end of the season to catch up, but I may make an exception for Bill Nighy and van Gogh.

While this is largely a stand-alone episode there are certain nuances that are likely to pass you by if you haven't seen those that precede it.

You're so right about that church, but it was a really enjoyable episode. I like these ones where they explore earth history & feature real historical figures. And I'm really warming to Matt Smith...

I'm particularly fond of the episode featuring Mme de Pompadour.

Yeah. I enjoyed that one. But Curse of Fenric from the old days still remains one of my favourites...

Yes, that's a classic. I remember watching it with my sons.

I've always thought the McCoy era was undervalued.
