In Which I Review Doctor Who (9x11)
--Peter Capaldi nailed this episode. I might have some problems with Moffat's pacing and narrative, but Capaldi is wonderful.
--"I'm the Doctor. I am coming to find you and I will never stop."
--You cannot establish a telepathic link with a door because they are notoriously cross. Good to know.
--"I've run out of corridor. Now that's a life summed up." I laughed way too hard at this.
--So basically the Doctor landed at Hogwarts?
--The Doctor is the hybird. Okay, for what it's worth, that is part of Doctor Who canon from the movie with the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann. However, 99.5% of the fandom likes to ignore the half human/half Time Lord detail. I can't believe Moffat chose to run with that tidbit.
--Is the Doctor about to become the Valeyard? I might be okay with a lot of this self-indulgence if he was about to become the Valeyard.
--Only one episode to go!
