Did anyone catch the most recent Doctor Who episode (from Friday)? The one with the whole massive speech by the Doctor about war which has apparently somewhat taken the internet by storm?
It was pretty good wasn't it?
I have to admit, I thought from pretty early on that Peter Capaldi was a MUCH better Doctor than Matt Smith (who I really never warmed to) and this just proves me right, because it was a pretty excellent piece of acting on his part. It was also a surprisingly eloquent and well-written bit, so I guess I have to admit that the internet is kind of right to be bowled away by it.
I say "surprised" of course because the rest of the episode was just a bit rubbish
I mean, I fucking love Doctor Who, but I also enjoy taking the rip out of it because it IS often a little bit rubbish. The plot of most episodes can basically be summarised as "a bad thing happens, the Doctor does a thing, wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey and everything's okay". I mean there are exceptions, like I think both of the episodes with Arya Stark were ACTUALLY really good, but this is how I feel most of the time. And the whole thing with the Zygons was just a bit ludicrous... Like, each and every single scene in the previous episode which involved human soldiers just made me cringe. I mean... Come on
UNIT... Step up the game bro.
I also have to voice another, potentially volatile opinion. I think Clara is hot, but she is NOT a good companion. I thought she was good for a couple of series, but by now I am really losing my interest and patience with her and the focus on her role.
