Dr Who - Season 30 (4) [SPOILERS]

Well, any BBC watchers wish to comment?

I'm not too sure about the rock guitar riffs in the theme tune.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

I recognised a certain *ahem* person before they turned their head around.

Not wanting to give anything away there.

I thought the humour in the episode was wonderful. I just didn't like the silly cute gremlin creatures of the week.

The spaceship was very Close Encounters was it not.

Still want Carey Mulligan though!

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

The spaceship was Close Encounters crossed with the Walkers of Sigma 957.

The adult version of the alien living sugar packets are not nice.

A similar story to the Sarah Jane Adventures pilot. Someone does not like food.

Now you mention it the anti food message was in some ways also around in School Reunion as well. Brain increasing chip fat.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Well, given my 11 and 12 year old children's reaction to the "silly cute gremlin creatures of the week", I have this weird feeling that they were aimed more towards the younger end of Dr Who fandom rather than the cynical 39 year olds like me. They thought they were great.

I could take or leave them as individual specimens, personally, but there was something decidedly creepy about seeing hundreds (or was it thousands) of them all in one place.

And a pretty good performance by Catherine Tate, I thought. I, for one, am looking forward to a different Dr/Companion dynamic this season.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

The new season of Doctor Who is finally starting for those of us in the USA. It will begin this coming Friday evening, on the SciFi Channel, with the Xmas special, Voyage of the Damned.

Yesterday I watched the first (long) ep of The Sarah Jane Adventures. It is obviously made for kids, but wasn't bad, considering. Not sure if I will watch more.

Episode 2: The Fires of Pompeii, was an absolute classic.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Enjoyed them both, very entertaining all around. Fires of Pompeii felt very 80's in theme at times, lots of fum. Tate is good, and I suspect she will slide into the role as time goes on.

Agreed ... I have enjoyed both eps so far, and I think the dynamic between The Doctor and Donna is potentially brilliant. I love that she just isn't shy to challenge The Doctor's outlook with the hard questions that need to be asked.
