"They're not vampires, they're aliens!" "Classic."
"We're not her boys." "Yeah, we are." "Yeah...."
I know I'm a lost cause but that's what I want from Doctor Who. Hapless but not unintelligent boyfriend changing the dynamic, great one-liners, no obvious WTF moments, wonderful interplay between our heroes, good direction and Helen McCrory being brilliant. It wasn't complicated and I've read that it lacked menace but I'm sick of everything being "it's the end of the world!" anyway. Personally, I sat there having a whale of a time for the full 45 minutes, and I can see myself watching it time and again. I know that Stephen Moffat is massively clever, and moments that felt odd during the Weeping Angels story will undoubtedly pay off beautifully later on but hey, I'm impatient.
As for the newbie, I know Marie's not a fan, but I do love the beatnik physicality of Matt Smith's Doctor and the fact that, as has been widely noted, he's a lot less human than Ten. Can't hear a word he says at times, of course... that really needs to be sorted.
Next week - creepy dreamworld. Can't wait.
EDIT: Does the Doctor break the fourth wall in this episode by the way? When he says that asking the baddies to reveal the whole plan will work one time, it feels like he catches the eye of the viewer ...
