hmm. not my favourite episode so far, thought the way they dealt with the aliens far too cheesy. some good moments though, especially the ending with mickey and the doctor. very much a "bottle show".
next week's looks very ooh.Tags: doctor who
Yes, suffering in the transitions between "there's a human in this suit", and "this is a fluid CGI that doesn't have to worry about gravity".
The core concepts are good, but screenplay is dripping with fromage. I know Locum Who is supposed to be 'quaintly Britishly crap', and the BBC are not producing the show in an entirely polished manner, but some of the last two eps had me cringing on behalf of the BBC, and I unlatched my suspension of disbelief quite a few times, to protect my sanity and patience.
I'd like more concepts, more character, more story arc, less US-style presentation, more 'unseen' mysteries. I thought the 'sun's end' idea would have been eye-opening for some people who didn't think about that kind of thing - I liked 'Sliders' for its ideas, but sadly only caught a few eps of that.
