We reckon you’re going to love this one
So far this year we haven’t been doing our Spoiler Free Doctor Who previews. No reason, really – we’ve been too busy providing other sorts of Who goodness (such as our minute -by- minute reviews). But “The Time Of Angels” is something special. I watched it last night so I could get the review ready to post straight after the episode airs, and was so excited by the end that I just had to blog about it.
Don’t worry, there will be NO spoilers. I knew very little about the episode other than the villains (and in case you don’t – though I can’t imagine how – I won’t even mention them) and I’m glad about that. I’m not even going to say, “There’s a great gag about…”, because there is a great gag about that whatever-it-is, but it’s much more fun not knowing it’s coming (but it will make you laugh).
So, here are a few random thoughts:
It is the first part of a two-parter, so it’s difficult to judge the story overall, but on the basis of this first part, it could turn out to be one of the show’s all-time classics.
Of course, feel free to take all this with a pinch of salt. New Who is a divisive show and SFX is known for being a magazine that definitely sits on the thumbs-up side of that divide. But I’m going to stick out my neck and make a prediction – on the episode poll on the SFX forum this weekend, I reckon well over 50% of voters are going to give it five out of five. I certainly will.
