We have watched "Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars".

And we will be doing a family roundtable review tomorrow night. I wanted to do it now! But Adam and Elayna are still processing. They're getting all academic up on this in the other room. Analysis is happening.

Spoiler-free version: whoa that was dark. And the ending had us going "oh craaaaap....", and we can't wait for Christmas Day and "The End of Time".

I am SO dreading this. It's waiting for me.

Any actual spoilers will be under a cut-tag, I promise!

Curiously, I didn't think it was dark enough. I'll be curious to see the discussion play out. :)

Were I writing it, I'd've gone darker, but... heh. Remind me to tell you the plot of what I'm working on sometime.

I'm a non-Who watcher, at least so far (I'll watch it, eventually, I promise, 'cause my watching it will make at least rafaela happy), but knowing Children of Earth by reputation: do you think that CoE's having aired contributes to that feeling that this special wasn't dark enough? Or am I reading too much into that? (Heck, the answer could be the same for both. I don't know what I'm talking about.)

Certainly possible!
16th-Nov-2009 02:35 am (UTC)
As it is, I am watching The Prisoner.

Oooh, I heard bad things about that.
16th-Nov-2009 02:43 am (UTC)
What sort of bad things?
16th-Nov-2009 02:45 am (UTC)
Just firmly "meh" things.

*is downloading the new ep right now*

...Did it air tonight or something? The post directly above yours was this: http://doven.livejournal.com/323886.html

And it had me blinking and going o_O.

Aired tonight in England. We pirates downloaded it.

..bwhaa? I must be thinking of a different episode then. I thought I'd already seen it.

That chart is is about 9/10ths of the current Who eps, so it's not surprising.

Just finished it. I do suspect that part of the feeling that it wasn't dark enough is in relation to CoE but if they be seperated enough to instead put Waters of Mars in context with the rest of Who-verse then OOOOOH wow. *I* at least was blown away and am so very glad I'm not gonna have to wait months and months to see the next one.

Doc's starting to lose it in his isolation.
