Too Much Magic, and fuck What They Did to Donna

First (Drunken) Reactions


The "science" made no sense, there were deus ex machinae coming out the wazoo, and the "heart-breaking" ending didn't even knock on my heart's door.

sabottaby was right. It was an anti-climax.

Worse, in saying it was an anti-climax anti-climax "after last week's awesomeness.

But still, it was geekworthy. I laughed a few times, I gasped three or four, but I didn't cry — the score clearly intimated that I was supposed to.

I took a lot of screen-caps and had intended to post a long, cap-heavy entry that would annoy most of you, but to hell with it. No spoilers, you'll enjoy it, but it wasn't An Episode for the Ages.

Damn it.

Of course, I'll re-watch it tomorrow, and it's possible I'll change my mind.

One of the deux felt like repetition but I'll leave it for a spoiler-friendly post for discussion.

I enjoyed the episode and it appears to have confirmed two of the rumours I have heard about next year's WHoVerse.

Spoiler-Friendly Post

One of us had better get on that, oughtn't we?

Probably time to re-view the episode before I high myself off to bed for a morning of job-hunting.

I am so out of the loop on the new Doctor Who. Watched most of the first season and part of the second then it fell off my radar. Damn.
