Doctor Who 5.05: Flesh and Stone

I am honestly not sure where to start. That was really rather brilliant ๐Ÿ˜€

Doctor Who 5.04: The Time of Angels

Hmm, my cats are annoyed because I jumped several times and I’m slightly nervous about closing my eyes.

Looks like Moffat succeeded ๐Ÿ˜€ Don’t even blink!

Doctor Who 5.03: Victory of the Daleks

I’m hiding this behind a read more cut thingy because I got a little carried away and there are spoilers littered all over the place. You have been warned!

Doctor Who 5.02: The Beast Below

I may have committed major book buying today. Oops. In my defence, they are all award nominees and I’ll be able to form an opinion on what should win now. Er.

Anyway. It’s so good to have Doctor Who to squee about. I’m hiding the rest of this behind a cut because I discuss major spoilers for the entire episode. You have been warned!

Doctor Who 5.1: The Eleventh Hour (more thoughts)

OK, I know that I promised to reduce the Doctor Who content after the first episode aired. I might have told an untruth. Not precisely a lie, but I didn’t realise how much there would be to discuss from it.

The last couple of days is why I love Doctor Who: so much discussion everywhere! It’s really a community thing, more so than any other fandom that I’ve been in. As a meta-addict, this is kind of awesome.

I got tempted into a re-watch last night after reading some of the commentary. It’s one of those episodes that benefits from a second watching because there’s so much to pick out that I didn’t notice before. Having some of the comments in mind from other viewers was also fun.

Doctor Who 5.1: The Eleventh Hour (the squee edition)

So this is my reaction about five minutes after watching the episode plus the Confidential. Tomorrow could be busy (Easter) so I wanted to get something up. There may be a slightly more insightful post later: I suspect this post is going to be high on the squee quotient.

To that end, onwards! Really, don’t click if you don’t want to be spoiled for the whole darned thing.

Doctor Who 1.04: Aliens of London

Obviously I couldn’t watch just one last night, so I popped in the next disc and went onto Aliens of London.

I didn’t spot this before, but is it possible that someone was riffing the song Werewolves of London? I adore that song – jack the volume up and play air drums every time it plays on the radio.

Back to Doctor Who. This is what I thought back in 2005:

Doctor Who 1.03: The Unquiet Dead

Watched this plus Aliens of London last night. This is what I thought in 2005:

Doctor Who 1.02: The End of the World

Continuing with the excessive Doctor Who-themed postings, this is the review that I wrote for The End of the World back in 2005 with some commentary from me in 2010 at the end:

Doctor Who 1.01: Rose

There is going to be a lot of Doctor Who content here for the next week. Then this blog will go back to the usual knitting and life stuff apart from weekly episode reviews, but be prepared for a week of Doctor Who madness here.

I’ve written reviews for most of the episodes in the new series over the years and posted them else where. With Season 5 starting in a week (!!) I thought it might be fun to go back through those reviews, post the ones related to episodes that I re-watch this week (there’s a re-watch plan, yes) and then add a bit of commentary on what I think now that I’ve had a few years (and a few episodes) since writing the review.

First up, Rose! I re-watched this one a couple of months ago as part of a Doctor Who induction night for some friends. This review was what I posted the morning after it first aired:
