    Thoroughly enjoyable and lots of mysteries for future untangling.

    @juniperfish agree about the jewellery, there was a lingering shot of the Doctor’s hand on the bannister which seemed deliberate to show off his rings…

    Mrs Flood made me think of River / Pond as did the baby and parent mystery for Ruby but not sure RTD would parallel a Moff sto…[Read more]

    Occurs to me that if RTD2 is serious about all previous doctors having bigenerated, that means as well as 14 and 10.5, 10 will also now be knocking around somewhere, leading to the possibility of a triple Tennant episode.

    And could the Master have also bigenerated? Could it be the Master as Missy picking up the gold tooth in which another version…[Read more]

    Last night’s episode has certainly wormed itself into my brain which can only be a good thing.

    It felt like two very different episodes spliced into one (kind of anti bigenerational). Loved the 1925 segments, gothic Victorian horror, very Tom Bakerish.

    But the rooftop finale felt just too weird, with the Toymaker just sat around while the D…[Read more]

    On the literary theme, the Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter. Long time since I read but very spooky I recall

    For a moment there I thought we were heading for a meta retcon of DW as a tv programme but wasn’t to be… loved the toymaker stuff, still in shock about the denouement..

    And last and least some random disjointed observations… body dysmorphia <_> gender transition… 10 and 14 and 14 and his doppelgänger… doctordonna and  donnadoctor

    i went to see this about the same time as the episode broadcast- as will be seen from the photos the arms are too long…

    the performance was in part about how social media is transforming perceptions of the human body so definitely some weird s…[Read more]

    Explain the brilliance of this episode in five words or less:

    A mere 8 years since my last post (a mere blink to a Timelord), and I’ve had to regenerate as I couldn’t access my former @bobbyfat account, but glad to be back.

    The episode did exactly what it set out to do, which was to re-engage people like me who had drifted away from the show. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Loved the reveal about Rose’s shed being…[Read more]
