Most of this is going to be behind the cut and remember comments may be very spoilery.
Over all this took what happened in Utopia and kicks it up to the next level. Solid script and solid performances all around. I really like what John Simm did. Also the logic that is Doctor Who continuity manages to keep most of itself together.
On another note that I really don’t consider a spoiler because it is the music related. When this episode came out in the UK the song “Voodoo Child” by Rogue Trader went back onto the charts and it ran up on the iTunes download list. You couldn’t get it in the US just the UK but one week later it was available in the US too because of demand. The power of the fan.
I am grateful for good music in Doctor Who.
Wow. The Master as totally loony just works for me on so many levels. And the teletubbies were a nice touch too.
The Doctor in the pit of despair and Martha yanking him out of it.
Captain Jack being….well Captain Jack. The Torchwood riff just worked on so many levels. And I am wondering what they did in Tibet.
The Doctor figuring out how the Master did it which does play into next week.
Old Doctor. Martha escapes. Jack dies again.
I just enjoyed the heck out of this (but Utopia still remains my favorite)
Next week the conclusion which had fans talking, debating, fighting, and groaning (not the good kind of groaning either).
