Capaldiwatching: OH FOR GOD'S SAKE pt. 2

My score is an average of two scores: 0 for the episode itself, 10 for Capaldi, who demonstrates his trademark ability to make something coherent and recognizably human out of the most dopey and incoherently written roles.

This whole double episode is just a jumble of red herrings and cheap thrills (the image of a couple engaged in penetrative sex being shot in slow motion is repeated every five minutes or so, as are shots of their mummified corpses, DEAD AND STILL HAVING SEX, AREN'T YOU THRILLED? In a similar vein of questionable taste Capaldi's character is shown having constant flashbacks to a childhood trauma that dooms him to being a Norman Bates style psycho killer. He also delivers a couple speeches of quasi-poetic Freudian word salad and even for a couple of minutes goes Hannibal Lecter to penetrate the mind of one of the forensic detectives examining him, SO SCARY RIGHT, but of course none of this comes together to give us a character we can get any kind of a fix on, just a jumble of psychological non sequiturs designed to mystify us. Capaldi deals with the ridiculous task of having to actually play this character by concentrating on how he must be feeling, which is confused and uneasy, which works very well, as we share what he's feeling, and not in a good way.
