Welcome to the most dangerous place in the u n i v e r s e …
I thought this episode was pretty mixed. I hated the Doctor saying that Clara cares so he “doesn’t have to” and the fact that he sacrificed the man who was “already dead” to save everyone else (pretty sure we haven’t seen his character interpreted this way since the Colin Baker days). The third act was strong, though, and I really dug the whole “You are a good Dalek” bit. Examining the Doctor’s faults and moral ambiguities is always interesting, but it’s the perfect thing to do with this darker incarnation. I just hope we get to see the Doctor save some peoples and planets in addition to the introspective callousness, because otherwise the answer to his question will be “Not any more.”
MRW, as both a feminist and a movie nerd, someone asks me if I want to see the new Woody Allen film
