Cold Blood, the review

THE STORY: A very good and suiting completion to the story that started in The Hungry Earth. This part of the story seemed more fulfilling and adventurous then The Hungry Earth, but that episode was mainly for building tension and setting the story out. As I said before, these stories could have been more creepy. The way that the masked Silurian's look is so menacing and creepy, so much more could have been done with that. Overall I was a brilliant story, and lived up to the expectations that were left by The Hungry Earth.

THE DOCTOR AND AMY (OH AND RORY):  All three of the usual cast were on top form this week, more so The Doctor, just for those final few scenes, truly sad. The lack of Amy in the last episode was made up for in this episode, a very strong and worth while story for Amy. And Rory, oh poor Rory.

THE ENEMY: Once again, the Silurian's was brilliant. A lot more menacing and scary in this episode, but still not reaching there full potential of creepiness. Still they are great, and new envisioning of a classic enemy, one that will hopefully appear a few times over the Moffat era.

THE BEST BIT: The scene where Alaya's body is brought back to the Silurian city, an amazingly powerful scene.

THE WORST BIT: Not really the worst bit, but Nasreen could have been a better character, some of the lines she said were quite cheesy and just annoyed me.

THE MOST INTERESTING BIT: The meeting over the sharing of the planet.

RATING 4.5/5
What did you think of the episode?

3. Drone of the 80's

4 & 5. TBA
TBA (Episodes evolving CSSC)

6. The Misplaced Souls

7. People in the deep

10. Fade
The Doctor loses touch with reality as he fades from one world another. As one world is with his companions but he is about to die, and one in places his been before with his companions, but he is alone, both begin to seem less real as The Fade toys with The Doctor's mind, and threaten his existence in time.

11, 12 & 13 The Red Sky, From The Abyss, and Day of the Doomed
The last day of light has gone, and the doors of the Abyss have opened. The Doctor faces death as the most dangerous revenge plot unfolds. The one The Doctor fears the most has been set free, and is going to destroy The Doctor's world bit by bit. Humanity faces it's darkest day as the Abyss' shadow covers earth.

Tell me what you think?
THE STORY: A great story, which had me captivated from the word go. The return of the Silurian's was brilliant, although I felt the story could have been more of a scary one. It seemed to lack a certain "wow, that was creepy" factor which I love in Doctor who. Hopefully this will be picked up in "Cold Blood".

THE DOCTOR AND AMY (Oh, and Rory): The Doctor was on top for in this episode, the best we've seen him so far. Amy wasn't really in the episode much, but her scenes were brilliant, a lot of scares for Amy this week. The part of her being "eaten" by the Earth was just genius, brilliantly scary genius. Rory seems to be a little less involved in this episode, as it many focused on The Doctor, but his scene's were brilliant, more serious then before.

THE ENEMY: The Silurian's were actually one of the best enemies we have seen this series. They are such a clever idea, and I love when classic enemies are brought into the new series. The Silurian's are so menacing, and a little creepy. Only thing I would say is that they don't have the third eye, which slightly disappoint me.

THE BEST BIT: The Doctors retort to Rory as his complains about the sonic screwdriver, "Oi! Don't diss the sonic!"

THE WORST BIT: The engagement ring scene, didn't seem needed. But it may be important later.

THE MOST INTERESTING BIT: The Doctor's conversation with Alaya, it was such a captivating and strong scene.
Rating: 3.9/5

Blog Fan Series. UPDATE #2

Plans for the fan series have moved on a little over the past few weeks. A synopsis for the series has been put together:
The Doctor is suddenly thrown into a whirlwind of adventure as he regenerates in the blink of an eye, without warning. The search for the truth leads The Doctor to meet an old friend, the clever and  brilliant Cassie Smith. 
Together the are going to go across the stars, throw time and space, going into dangers unknown. 
What happens to humanity in the 42nd century? Why is everyone so into music in the 80's? What is the truth of the trees of Earth? What lurks in the deep? Who is Experiment CSSC? Why is The Doctor scared of a silent dripping tap? And What is Abyss?

Tonight: The Hungry Earth

The Hungry Earth
Saturday, 22 May 18.15, BBC One
It's 2015 and the most ambitious drilling project in history has reached deeper beneath the Earth's crust than man has ever gone before - but now the ground itself is fighting back. And when the Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in a tiny mining village it's not long before they find themselves plunged into a battle against a deadly danger from a bygone age.

Here are Digital Spy's ten teasers for this episode:

1. Amy and Rory are expecting to arrive in Rio when The Doctor mistakenly lands them in a Welsh village in the year 2020. Yes, it's just an excuse to see Amy in a tiny skirt for the next two episodes but let's agree to overlook that.

2. Immediately The Doctor senses that there's something unusual with the ground below them. There's something wrong with the grass, too.

3. Pay attention to the script very early on in this episode. A lot of the lines will have added poignancy after the story is done with.

4. The Doctor loves a big ****** *****.

5. Nasreen Chaudhry (Meera Syal) is heading up a team that has drilled further into the Earth than anyone has before, 21km deep. Unfortunately her drilling has disturbed something below...

6. The Earth is pretty hungry. Ravenous in fact. It consumes Amy and it's still got the munchies!

7. Shameless! Plug! For! Sherlock!

8. The Doctor: "Silence. Absolute silence."

9. When The Doctor comes face to face with a Silurian, she claims to be the last of her species.

10. The Doctor: "Nobody **** today."

Hopefully you'll follow this blog. And tell me what you think.


Vampires of Venice viewing figures

5.6: The Vampires of Venice, the episode achieved an overnight figure of 6.2m viewers, with a 30.6% audience share.
Doctor Who was the most watched programme on BBC One for Saturday. (Including BBC HD ratings)
Final BARB ratings will be available in the next 10 days.

Crack of the week

Although it was a certified crack, it was the closest thing we got to one this week, and with all the talk of the silence, I think this needs to be it.

THE STORY: A great romp to really sink your teeth into (pun intended). A great return for Toby Whithouse to the world of Doctor Who. The story just had you drawn in from the moment The Doctor jumped out of the cake, truly amazing. And the Vampire, well weren't they just cracking, although they weren't actual vampires, they were alien fish, but still a good enemy for The Doctor. 
THE DOCTOR AND AMY (oh, and Rory): The addition of Rory just made things a whole lot funnier. Great one liners and fantasy. The Doctor shone in this episode. Matt Smith is The Doctor, no questions asked. He is able to go from gleefully winning against the Vampires, to upset when Gallifrey is mentioned, and then inquisitive about the silence and cracks in time. Amy Played a vital part in this episode, but she was slightly pulled back by the ties of Rory, which sort of put the dynamic of The Doctor and Amy on hold. 
THE ENEMY: Brillant. The "Vampires" themselves were scary and creepy and a lot of fun, whilst the Fish creatures, the Saturnynian's, were scary and strange, but didn't get enough time on screen. I would have also of liked to see the males under the water, a whole army of them would have been brilliant. A great enemy, that should defiantly return at some point.
THE BEST BIT: Rory and The Doctor discussing the kiss with Amy. Rory "Did you kiss her back", to which The Doctor replied "No, i kissed her mouth".  A classic moment.
THE WORST BIT: The Doctor climbing up the tower, the FX on this weren't as good as usual. This was the only thing that ruined it for me. 
THE MOST INTERESTING BIT: The conversation with The Doctor and Rosanna, very compeling and interesting. A battle of minds, always going to be brilliant. 

A lot is about to happen

The review of the latest episode of Doctor who, "The Vampires of Venice" will be posted later today. As well as an edit to the previous post about the latest episode titles, as that post had to be done at my cousins.
Also, I will be posting the latest viewing figures, and the latest on the cracks.

I will be adding a new blog tonight, which will be a basic blog about me writing, planning and creating the new blog fan series. It would be really, really appreciated if you would follow this blog when it is created, and the fan series is really important to me and I really want it to work.
