Blink/Utopia (yeah, more Doctor Who)
Okay. I accidentally spoiled myself on the nature of the Weeping Angels while building the DVD.
That didn’t stop me from having several OMGWTFBBQ!!! moments while watching this episode–if I can know the nature of the monster and still get my mind blown, that’s perfect writing, perfect directing, and perfect acting.
Had I not known what they were, I would have been behind the sofa. In one startled leap.
Absolutely stunning — they had a bit of a shaky start to this season, but dayamn have they found their bearings.
It doesn’t hurt that this was a Steven Moffat script–he’s carved himself out a niche worthy of Terrance Dicks, Terry Nation, Robert Holmes and (dare I say) Douglas Adams between The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace and Blink–all four standout episodes of the restart.
OH MY FUCKING GOD! o.O;
My brain hurts! I thought they couldn’t keep up to the mark they set in Human Nature/Family of Blood. I humbly submit to you that was wrong, oh so very wrong…
