lately, i’ve been a little annoyed with Doctor Who. Capaldi doesn’t act like the doctor. He acts like he doesn’t even know who that is. but I just realized that’s probably the whole point. he doesn’t know, and Clara’s teaching him. and maybe that was a little ham-fisted and obvious in the dalek episode, but it was really well done in “Listen”. though honestly, i’m not sure i approve of them making the doctor out to be so scared all of a sudden.
also, i think they wasted a really good idea for a villain. i mean, seriously, the way Capaldi read that poem?!! and the notion of unknown and unseen constant companions that we are only aware of subconsciously! kind of like a combination of the silence and the Vashta Nerada!!! i mean, that’s some weeping angels level shit right there!!!! thoughts?
