Doctor Who: The Silence
Another excellent episode, with The Silence proving to be, I think, one of the scariest Who monsters of all time. I love how Stephen Moffat can create such memorable monsters, often, have you noticed, based on what could be variations of childhood games, take your gaze away from the Weeping Angels and they move, turn your back on The Silence and you forget about them, Moffat plays very heavily on the fear of things moving just out of the corner of your eye I think.
And so many questions raised by these two episodes, I love TV drama that makes you think, there isn’t that much of it around these days, with Lost being the absolute classic, 24 making you think at least a little (i.e. who was the CTU mole this series and trying to figure out the complex layers of bad guys) and over on this side of the pond Life on Mars / Ashes to Ashes. Of course all four of those shows are now over, so thank god for Doctor Who. I’ve got so many theories now about what’s going on this series, as I’m sure everyone who has watched these episodes have, I can’t wait to see if/when my theories pan out (evidence already suggests I was right about Amy . . .).
Oh and as for next week, notice how those black marks on their hands where in the same places as those transmitters . . . ?
