Six Degrees of Doctor Who
Just watched it, and wow, I really liked that episode. |
- So, he's not a clone! I'm glad, and I liked the fact Kline Whatstheirnames don't know where he's from (unless they're bluffing).
- Flashbacks can be such a cliche, but I think they worked here. The disjointed backstory helped build tension around what would happen when they opened the box.
- Was the older woman the same actress as Dr. Jackman's 'Mother'?
- The character of Katherine is seeming less and less like an important piece of the story and more and more like an excuse to have a hot girl wear tight things. Miranda, however, gave a good turn with her investigation, and Meera Syal did a great job of the realization she was wrong, and that she was in a great deal of danger.
- Gina Bellman was so good in this episode. I was very impressed with her acting in this episode, and I really enjoyed seeing her character fleshed out. Too often the Wife Character is just the Wife Character, and not really a person. Kudos to Steven Moffat for making Claire a lot more real.
- James Nesbitt really shone in this episode as well, I thought. His bumbling, nerdy Tom meeting Claire for the first time was brilliant. The discussion of the patio was the most painful social interaction I've seen since series two of Extras.
- Steven Moffat, this is the sort of stuff that makes Doctor Who fans want you to script edit the show full time, or produce, or anything, really. Love and kisses, A Lot of DW Fans.
- Oh, almost forgot my "Blink" spoiler... I thought it was amusing when Dr. Jackman and Hyde were communicating through the TV to one another. Reminded me of the Doctor/Sally.
- Cliffhanger! Is it Jackman? Is it Hyde? Or perhaps something else altogether?
