Re: Doctor Who

I watched the latest episode this morning. I thought it had some interesting elements and some humorous moments, but I kind of predicted how it was going to end (maybe it's because I'm an adult, so I've seen more shows than some younger kids and teenagers watching this episode, I don't know...). But even though I figured the episode was going where it was going, I thought that the scene at the end where the Doctor is reunited with the TARDIS was kind of sweet.
And I have to say, I'm liking the retro theme song a lot! I remember hating the new orchestration of the theme song when Peter Capaldi first came on the show in series 8 (though I haven't really seen any new episodes since series 8 started so I don't know if it was changed at all in his subsequent series), so I'm glad they've reverted to something more pleasant.

Re: Doctor Who

But I am enjoying the series.

Re: Doctor Who

Last night's episode was the best Dr Who I have ever seen.

Re: Doctor Who

I loved the episode (best of Jodie's that we've seen so far), but had quite a few little quibbles.  One being that Rosa Parks didn't fit the description I've read of her.  It felt a bit "educational" and expositional at times (although I know I have to bear in mind that it's aimed at children who might not know the background detail!).  And the end speech didn't come off so well for me - I think maybe the writing rather than the delivery.  But I did find it an emotional episode and really warmed to all the companions.  There were some very funny parts too!

Re: Doctor Who

I don't really know what Rosa Parks was like, so I can't speak to that. I'll have to see what I can find out. It looks like Radio Times put out an article about her portrayal in the episode.

I did recognize Vinette Robinson (Sally Donovan) playing her, though.

But overall I thought it was the best of the series so far. Exciting, funny, and moving in the end. I like that they acknowledge the fact that time travel to the past, especially to certain times and places, might not go so well for certain people because of prejudices of the day.

Re: Doctor Who

Well, I don't know if the description I've read of Rosa is accurate anyway! I'd read that she came across as quiet and shy, and I didn't really get that from the episode.  But it may have been that the writers did their research and what was shown was closer to the truth than what I've read.  Or it may be that this portrayal got the point across better - I did really like the portrayal.
