Grumble Doctor Grumble Who

I don't really have a lot to say about Doctor Who this week, as I thought it was a bit rubbish. Great start, but turned lame roughly halfway through, and then ended with a Big Reset Button, which is a trope I do not tolerate under any circumstances ever. I just felt that I should congratulate Jenna-Louise Coleman on the least convincing 'Running Away From A Big Fireball' acting that I have ever seen. To be perfectly fair to her though, she was streets ahead of the three man salvage team, who were the woodenest things that I've had on my screen for a good few years; and even they weren't as bad as their appalling redemption arc storyline. Oh, Doctor Who. This is your big anniversary year, and so far you're not living up to it. It was not episodes like this that allowed the show to reach fifty. Still, by the look of things we have Victorian lesbian adventurers next week, so that bodes well; and Matt Smith continues to be awesome. I just wish the writing was worthy of him. Has April been Work Experience Month or something?

I'm hoping that it all ends up meaning something....................and that Captain Jack actually turns up too!!

I've also heard that these episodes are based on old who storylines (basically running down corridors away from crap monsters!!)

I do get the impression that they're trying to do some sort of homage to the old show with these latest episodes, yes, but so far they're missing the mark. This week was just a mess. Old Who wasn't perfect, I admit, and sometimes it was utter nonsense, but maybe the new series writers could start basing their episodes on the best of the old stuff, rather than the worst.

And yes, Jack would be good!

Best rather than worst would be a start! My guess is their budget ran out!
