I’m taking the time briefly, because I seem to have misplaced my desire to sleep, to complain about how terrible these last few episodes of Doctor Who were. If you are a Whovian like myself but have not yet watched The Bells of Saint John or the latest one Rings of Whatever…stop now, come back when you do.
First of all I was pretty excited for Clara Oswald, the new companion. I really felt like she was different, that where they were heading with her was somewhere interesting. Instead they have blown two episodes in an already short season going absolutely nowhere and with plot lines that fall flat and silly. This last episode was atrocious and I gotta be honest, I never thought I’d say that about any episode of Doctor Who. It isn’t silly like Dinosaurs on a Spaceship silly, it’s silly like Peter Parker at the jazz club in Spider-man 3. In all fairness Bells of Saint John wasn’t bad as much as it wasn’t great. It was ok, it was fine, it was average but for a show that has kept people waiting as much as Doctor Who has….well that’s not very good.
