Tom MacRae’s previous effort – Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel was a load of utter shit, so how would this one work out after a couple of lacklustre weeks?
Virtually everything – I loved all the performances; I loved the setting and set-up; I though the regulars did brilliantly; I liked the side to the Doctor in lying to Rory and then shutting out the older Amy.
I thought Rory’s character devolved into the slightly feckless character he started off as – and there was some trademark Murray Gold cod-emotional indulgence – the musical equivalent of a crywank.
All told very good stuff. Among a very, very uneven season in which only the regulars have been consistently good The Girl Who Waited along with The Doctor’s Wife have really delivered a template for how DOctor Who can shine in its current incarnation.
Let’s hope someone at Upper Boat is making notes.
