So intense, and it doesn’t make any sense, but it does. And “pterodactyls are vermin. Do not feed.” Bringing back Dickens, Churchill, a Dalek. “It’s always two minutes past five.” The Doctor reading a “Knitting for Girls” magazine. “Live chess” super creepy — the Doctor’s gotten ruthless.

Amazing — I have been waiting for Doctor Who for so long! Well, really, since the “A Christmas Carol” came out for Christmas 2010. Continue reading
