Scattered Who-ness

Too much else in the brain just now for long-winded meta, so, random thoughts again.

So, how many milliseconds before someone turns up at an event in River's 40s-inspired evening look? Or has it already happened? Because she looked awesome.

Pretty much anything called an angel in Doctor Who is bad news, isn't it? This stray thought brought to you by a recent rewatch of "The Unquiet Dead" and Gwyneth calling the Gelth that. The exception that comes to mind is Reinette referring to the Doctor as her "lonely angel," but then, he can be pretty bad news too, yeah?

Quantum badness. Image in the recording, image in Amy's eye. A true Moffat creeper-outer, revisited baddie and all. But a revisited baddie with new tricks up its sleeve, and a plausible handwave that the ones previously encountered on Earth were straggling scavengers, not representative of the angels' true power. And the decaying ones regaining strength? Yeeeeeeee.

So-alien-it-has-no-voice-of-its-own baddie communicating with the voice of the dead? Still creepy, but Moff would be wise not to push it by going for a third iteration. Especially since the last one also involved River. Or the next one, from her perspective. That must have given her some déjà vu.

Not at all surprised by the "not going back to prison" comment. The Master has always been the Doctor's Moriarty, but he's never had a proper Irene Adler. Raise your hand if you think that's changed.

Moff doesn't just borrow from himself -- more than a few echoes of "School Reunion" in River and Amy's interaction. Love that they hit it off from the get-go.

"River, hug Amy." -- "Why?" -- "Because I'm busy." :: dies laughing ::

"That woman is not going to drag me into this." Uh-huh. And he seriously asks Amy five minutes later why she didn't stay in the TARDIS when he told her to? Oh, honey. Does she look like Nyssa? Because she's the only one who ever actually paid attention to that. FCOL, Victoria was off like a shot the minute your back was turned. I mean, seriously! And yet he keeps saying it. It's really rather adorable.

Didn't know it was a two-parter. It's not often that I'm surprised by that sort of thing anymore. I'm rather enjoying it.

For crying out loud. I forget that it's only a standard acronym in SG-1 fandom... *blush*

Not a bad one to propagate!
