Storyline

The Doctor once again comes across River Song who is on a mysterious mission to locate the last of the Weeping Angels. The Angels have a unique way of hiding - they appear to be solid and immovable when anyone is looking at them. Only when they are alone are they able to move or attack. Amy finds the relationship between the Doctor and River to be quite interesting, particularly when she learns that at some point in the distant future, they are to be married! The Doctor thinks dealing with the last of the Angels should be a relatively easy task but realizes they are in trouble when they find they are replicating and that there is now an army of them.

Last week I wrote I scything review of the previous two episodes, and I am delighted to say that this one is much better. Firstly, and most importantly, the plot actually makes sense, and despite a few repeated ideas from previous episodes, it is generally quite original too.

Thankfully, unlike the previous two episodes, there is no awful plot to distract you from appreciating the episode. We have a repeat of the quirky, amusing Amy Pond (in contrast to the previous two episodes), who really is a incredible character, and an episode where Matt Smith is really able to show his true colours.

There are some genuine scares rather than the comical attempts at them that we have become used to, and the episode moves at a much better pace thanks to being a two-parter.

I started watching this episode being very pessimistic about how good it would be thanks to the previous two, but I am glad to say that I really enjoyed it. In fact, despite an element of predictability (though only slight), it really was fantastic.

For those of you, like me, who hated the previous few episodes, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised.
