Yeah Pyramids of Mars was my fave
I agree. It was much better and at least attempted to tell a story in it's highly condensed format. Still disappointed that these shorts are not really about the Ponds so much as mini-promo reels for the new series. It's understandable that they would do this, but then why call them "Ponds' Life"?
Today's has a big inside joke for old series fans. Nice nod to Pertwee.
I apologise for forgetting to check this thread more often
Smith's zaniness does require some measure of patience now and then, but as a character and a performer, the 11th Doctor and Matt Smith still make me happy
Might as well post it here too then.
Haven't watched any episode of Matt Smith, I just love David so much... Guess I will need to give it a try
Love these series 7 posters they are releasing.
I'm getting really tired of Amy and Rory. Can't wait for them to leave already.
I'll miss them both and felt they added a great dynamic to the show. Yet, agree that it's probably time for them to move on. It feels like they have run out of ideas on where to take them. Hopefully they don't kill them off or anything.
Its just been 2 years of Amy gets in trouble, Rory is the valliant hero, the Dr. saves them both. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Its really time for something new. I was never that enamored of the Dr/Amy/River story line anyway.
Rory has actually had a fairly interesting character arc. It reminds me in a way of Wesley from Buffy and Angel fame. He started out fairly incompetent and bumbling and managed to get his shit together. Sure it's not nearly as strong and arc, but the similarities are there and has been fun to watch.
I truly do love Amy. She's adorable. River? Not so much.
Amy's been all over the map -- sexpot, warrior woman, cynic, indifferent mother, etc. I like her because Karen brings a lot of charm to the part, but unless the upcoming eps are incredible, the character will depart without having lived up to its potential.
What a great episode. Non-zany Smith performing as impeccably as ever, with each companion giving it their all. And even amidst the gloom, Moffat still managed to pack some measure of wit in. All was rather redolent of his first season classic, "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances", albeit with the investment of two seasons' character and plot development. And there were twists
The Dalek nostalgia angle was wasted, that said, but this is still their most effective use since the Eccleston season
Rory must have a footlong.
I don't know why but the "Demon's Run" episode is one that will always epitomise Smith's tenure.
It was a flawed episode but it somehow conveyed anguish, doubt and fear that you know must be present in a million-year-old-time-lord-warrior, but has to be kept at bay because of his role in life.
Not to mention the fact that the poem;
Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown in sun
When a good man goes to war
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war
Demons run but count the cost
The battles won but the child is lost
Is as close as I can come to a modern nursery rhyme that I could actually tell the kids.
