This is my weekly review of Doctor Who, as that’s probably the thing i’ve been watching all week. I’ll try and get one out every thursday.
Okay, so this week i’ve been watching the end of series 6 and the beginning of season 7, Oh my lord folks. The whole River thing (SPOILERS) being Melody Pond, the daughter of Amy and Rory, my nerd senses exploded. It was so complex yet so simple and understandable but it felt like I was over compensating and making it more confusing in my head. It makes sense really with time being all wibbly wobbly.
Anyway i’m going to start picking things apart now, because thats what I think i’m supposed to do. So I was thinking about this the other day, doesn’t the Doctor and Amy and practically everyone in that show take all the deaths that happen to protect and save them way to casually, I mean a lot of people die in that show and they are all happy and smiling a few moments later, and they don’t seem to be affected by it at all really, whereas most people would be completely distraught seeing so many people die for them all the time, I know it’s not real, but it’s supposed to be, its fake reality isn’t it, and thats not particularly realistic. My house mate said its because other wise they’d go crazy if they didn’t put the deaths out of their minds but thats the point in the real world they would be crazy because they wouldn’t be able to not think about it. Just something to think about.
The beginning of season was, I must say pretty kick ass. It was typical Doctor Who making you think you know whats going to happen and then switching it up right at the end, with Oswald actually being a Dalek, but erasing all Dalek’s knowledge of the Doctor, also the subtle hints throughout the episode “where did you get the milk?”- LOVE IT.
Also the Amy/Rory divorce, that was a bit of a shock to the system, going from 2 series’ of fighting the universe to make sure of each others safety, The Girl Of Waited and The Last Centurion- all of a sudden, having too much love and caring too much about each other caused them to separate, but of course the Doctor comes back and saves everything.
