Hi, mateys! I know that it’s a bit late review of the christmas episode of Doctor Who. I’m sorry about that because I’ve had final exams and homeworks blablah. So let’s get started.
I told that I really loved Oswin when I first saw her at the first episode of the seventh season, Asylum of the Daleks. I said that this girl and this epic story have brought us to old seasons, back to this Doctor Who spirit we missed. When Amy and Rory are gone, I cried the hell out of me. However, I didn’t like seventh seasons’ episodes except first one. Then Clara came back, and the old spirit comes back again. It was legendary, and it really was a plot twist we never expected. I’m glad they did this, it started to become like a River Song, there’s a crack in my wall or a silence will fall mystery. I hope it will end at the season final and it will be a huge plot twist.
The story was a bit scary, I mean a person falls into a pond, and then pond gets frozen. And they’re finding the body when it’s melted. This gave me goosebumps. A really weird thing. However, the snowmen and the frozen lady etc. were not that scary and qualified I think. With Steven Moffat, aliens of Doctor Who became more fairytale-ish. He writes anything he wants, even if he wants to write a parapsychologic story, and then he says that they are aliens. Of course there would be aliens like that, but ALL of them is like that and with that Doctor Who started to become a children show.
Although, Clara was wonderful. She is so cute, so beautiful and she acts well. My favorite companion was Donna Noble, and I think this girl could get Donna’s throne. I like her curiosity and bravery. Amy Pond was curious and also she was brave, but she wasn’t get as excited as Clara, and Amy is not a very adventureous person I think. She’s more like a family person. I’m not saying this because she’s married to Rory or something. From starting to the end, Amy was with Doctor just because he was her hero. The link between them was so powerful. When I look at Clara, I can see that even if she doesn’t have the Doctor, she could find herself in adventures. She was living two other lifes! She was two different people!
In this episode, we saw the Doctor’s blue period. It made me remember the first episode after Rose was gone. Tenth Doctor always tried to be tough, he didn’t want to reflect his sadness to anybody. But we saw it in his eyes when somebody mentions about her. Elevent Doctor, he was a really childish person, though. He couldn’t hide his feelings about Amy and Rory. It was wonderful to see him be affected by them like this. He became one of their family members, first time in his life he had a family and they’re gone. But all he has done in his life full with kindness and favors to people. Where was karma? Even if he’s all blue, he couldn’t compress his instincts about adventures and helping people. He helped them. And I could see in his eyes, he was so excited about Clara and he really liked her.
Consequently, I want to talk about really little things that impress me in this episode. As you see, we’ve had a lesbian couple in Doctor Who! I got so excited when they said that they are married. I don’t know if we will see them in next episodes, but I hope we will see them. The next thing I want to mention is, Clara and the Doctor’s kiss. He seemed so excited! I thought he was an alien, he wouldn’t have enjoyed it that much! And also, he is married, people. He can’t do this to River 😦 I want to see River in next episodes SO much. I hope the writers include her. At least if she got the point in her storyline when she died at the library they could tell us that.
That’s all from me. It’s not been as good as I expected, but I finished my review. Thanks for reading!
Edit: I can’t believe myself, I forgot to mention about TARDIS’s new design! I really liked it. It reflects the blueness of the Doctor. But why did he do that? I really don’t know. He changes TARDIS from home to a real spaceship. It’s weird. But I liked it.
