Doctor Who: The Vampires of Venice
This week the Doctor takes Amy and her fiancée Rory on a ‘date’ to Venice, of course they quickly find trouble and Rory does the normal boyfriend of the side kick thing and moans about it. Don’t get me wrong, I liked this episode , I thought the scene between Rory and one of the vampires ‘sword’ fighting funny and Rory’s moaning did have a fair point. I also thought Matt Smith acted his socks off again, that bloke will go far (as will Karen Gillian, if anything just for being so darn gorgeous) but I’m digressing, much as I loved Russell T Davies’ Doctor Who, I am loving Stephen Moffat’s Doctor Who for being different, its cleaner, crisper and the dynamic between the Doctor and his assistant is so much better but by reintroducing Rory, introducing the domestics so to speak, it was slipping back into RTD land and been there, done that. I’m kind of hoping they’ll leave Rory on a planet somewhere next episode, but of course they won’t do that.
