Just finished watching tonight's Doctor Who
…What the everloving fuck did I just watch?!
That was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most dark and horrifying things I’ve ever seen from this show. Holy hell, it was terrifying - and absolutely phenomenal.
I’ve not been a big fan of Moffat’s seasons thus far, but omg he absolutely nailed it tonight. In my opinion, this was his best episode.
That one scene where Bill discovered her fellow patients in the hospital, and the state they were in (one of them even constantly asking to be killed)… I’m astonished that the BBC approved that O_O It was so sinister and is gonna stay with me for a while now. Just… damn.
I really hope that Bill’s cyber-conversion is reversed. For me, she’s been by far the best companion of Moffat’s era and I’m gonna be heartbroken if this is how she’s written out. That scene at the very end where she was crying and the tear was shown coming out of the eye of her Cyberman shell (alluding to the later designs having an actual teardrop shape under the eyes) was ridiculously powerful, though. Poor thing, she doesn’t deserve this ;_;
Massive props to whoever’s doing the voice of the Cybermen! I recently watched The Tenth Planet and crikey their new voices sound identical to the ones in that episode (their very first appearance)!
“Genesis of the Cybermen” though :p Nice, I do love a good fourth-wall break like that lol!
I’m not over the Master effectively flirting with himself - that’s perfect characterisation, right there (and is just hilarious to boot). I’m so excited to see the pair of them interacting some more!
Oh man… I literally can’t wait for next week now! I’m still in shock :O
