Saturday 8:00 PM on BBC AmericaBetween Seasons
|OH HEY WOW. So my laptop broke back at Easter and I got a new one, and I'll be honest, without this place on my favourites bar and no new episodes to discuss, I slightly forgot about it. BUT THEN I REMEMBERED. |
Looking forward to it. Should be interesting. Also curious about the various old Daleks, and what exactly an asylum for Daleks would be, or why they'd need one...what are they being protected from, by whom?
Oh now, I took Asylum totally different, I thought asylum as in for the mentally disturbed, not the sanctuary kind
They've done that. His name was Dalek Caan. Part of the reason why I immediately went for the other option. Much more interesting to see Daleks scared and in need of protection from something. Perhaps now they're calling on the Doctor for help? That'd be interesting.
So guessing it's going to pick up where Pond Life leaves off
(with Amy & Rory fighting, the latter having stormed off somewhere)
Having just starting a rewatch of the episode again, i noticed what could possibly be a very subtle clue as to the oncoming appearance of Oswin, just before we actually see her. When the Doctor is about to offer himself as sacrifice to the daleks in the parliament, he says, paraphrasing somewhat here, ''come on,it's christmas''. Now whether that was intentional or not, i thought it to be a very nice touch
|Thought Oswin was definitely the highlight of the episode. Could the Doctor have an intellectual peer at last?|
If I remember correctly, when Vastra and Dorium were looking at the research on Demons run they said that the Silence and Kovarian had been testing and experimenting on Amy and Melody in order to isolate the timelord gene. It is possible that the experiments that they did on Amy rendered her infertile. It may have been a complete mistake on their part.
Good episode overall but I was wondering about Jenna Louise Coleman being in it. I don't think this means that thismeans that this character is the new companion though. I think it is one of those things where an actor appears as a different character, impresses the producer, and is brought back as the new companion character with some explaination given for the resemblance. Freema for instance played one character in Doomsdayand then appeared as Martha, explained that they were cousins. This Oswin character may be related to the new companion in some way, maybe her sister or cousin.
