Write faster, old man!
Well, that was a very fine piece of televised art, right there
You’re shit at dying, you know that?
The tension key has been turned
Fire and blood, indeed
Hold the door
A Song of Breasts and Fire
A true history of the world is a history of great conversations in elegant rooms.
You’ve been mostly dead all day.
A man can do terrible things when he has lost his way.
You ever dance with the devil in the dark of the moon?
Weirdest. Arching. Ever.
Well that certainly was...an episode of television
They have pulled out an awfully big gun and I hope they can handle it responsibly
This episode was a lot of things, but mostly it was just right
When it comes to not making a damn lick of sense, this episode absolutely takes the cake.
Cool stuff definitely happened.
Makes you wonder what the question is
Dealing with the consequences of creating yet another immortal character
Vikings, warriors, puppets, eels, Maisie Williams, and return of the Doctor speaking baby
Who wrote Beethoven's 5th?
If I’m being completely honest, I was not head over heels for Under the Lake. However, I was for the payoff in the wibbly wobbly second half. There were a lot of firsts, a lot of fun, and a really cool monster. Plus, I was at least partially right: the Doctor’s ghost was not a ghost at all, just like I said last week. Let’s break it down, shall we?
I want to kiss it to death
Now that it’s October, the chill is in the air, and 31 Days of Halloween is in full effect at Geekade.com, a good old fashioned ghost story is just what the Doctor ordered, and that is exactly what we got in Series 9, Episode 3, Under the Lake.
Really, where did he get that cup of tea?
Mercy me! (See what I did there?) What a crazy start to a season! While The Magician’s Apprentice was all laughs and set-up, The Witch’s Familiar was deep, with a lot of payoff, something that’s refreshing to modern Whovians, to put it charitably.
The Doctor is back, along with an old nemesis, an old friend, and Clara.
After a seemingly interminable hiatus, we are back with a BANG. The Doctor Who series 9 premiere brings back a lot of greatest hits, raises a lot of heavy questions, and leaves us wanting more. Let’s grab our sonic screwdrivers and take it apart, shall we?
