Ariel still wants to sleep with the lights on after seeing it. In fact she refused to watch it with me last night.
It is interesting to see the Doctor when someone else knows more about what is going on than he does. He tends to pout a bit I think.
I love the title of the episode and how it works into the piece itself.
Overall I thought it was a really scary story played very well by the actors.
The villain of the piece was typical of Moffat’s writing if you consider his other episodes.
As usual spoilers behind the cut and in the comments.
I am grateful that Moffat was tapped for Show Runner for 2010.
I did get a little tired of the use of the word spoilers.
I did like the Doctor telling the Vashta Nerada to look him up and they decided attacking the Doctor would not be a good idea.
I want a diary like River’s. It looked like the TARDIS.
So River knows the Doctor’s name. I like how his first time meeting her is her last time running into him. It has poignancy to it.
Poor Donna. Will she ever find happiness?
I am so glad that SciFi didn’t screw with the ending. I saw that the clock was ticking down and we hadn’t gotten to the screwdriver and I was worried we were going to leave it like that.
The idea that Doctor Moon is a computer set up on the moon to help the computer on the surface was a neat one. I had figured out that the girl was in the computer last episode but didn’t suss out Moon until this one.
Overall the ending worked for me.
