  • ...But its still a corker...and very creepy too. But not my favourite episode

    yes all in all it is a very good episode that(of course)needs multiple viewings to get a full understanding and a full enjoyment for this episode.
    but it does lack that something special that makes most episodes work.
    on first viewing i was really confused with some of the things the main characters(not the Doc this time round)were babbling on about.
    but nevertheless after rewatching i managed to enjoy it much more and the weeping angels are really creepy.
    Unfortunately this episode was at the wrong end of series 3 as it aired right after the scorching two parter Human Nature/Family Of Blood(which in many ways i prefer over this episode).
    This is definately not Moffats best work,he makes his masterpiece in series fours terrific Silence In The Library/Forest Of The Dead two parter(which is terrifying and terrific).
    the thing that makes this extra special is the excellent direction and the also acts like a sort of slasher film as the angels pick off their victims one by one...which only adds to its enjoyment factor.
    Utopia for me is the best episode of this series along with the two parter before this,and i cant help but feel that this episode would have worked much better if it had aired in the first half of the series.
    but thats just my opinion.
    Not the best episode of New Who,but its a very good one.
