I realize It’s a bit late in the season to start reviewing episodes but let’s chalk that up to timey-wimey hang ups. My name is Zach and I’m a budding Whovian/Matt Smith enthusiast. From here on out I’ll be hopping in the TARDIS and dropping by here weekly to give you my take on the latest episode of Doctor Who and swoon my bow-tie off at the good Doctor.

Just remember that I called it when the series finale rolls around.
As far as the acting goes almost the entire cast was on their A-game. The fabulous Matt Smith delivers a performance akin to his predecessor David Tennant and with a rivaling swagger and a similar charm. Due in part to the writing for this episode by Toby Whithouse (“The Vampires of Venice”) that allowed for a heartfelt delivery in which the Doctor is the most meta of superheroes by being the furthest thing from one. Rita, a guest character played by Amara Karen (also Rita in The Darjeeling Limited) played a spectacularly lovable character but fell victim to the same fate as many other of the Doctor’s one episode crushes. Arthur Darvill as always is brilliant as Rory Williams, but it was Karen Gillian who disappointed me the most. Perhaps I’m just getting bored of her, and based on the script of the episode so too, perhaps, is the Doctor. Two points each this week for our leading men and none for Gretchen Wieners, er- Karen Gillian.
