Quotes

[first lines]
["Demon's Run"]
Amy Pond: [to her baby] I wish I could tell you that you'll be loved, that you'll be safe, and cared for, and protected, but this isn't the time for lies. What you are going to be, Melody, is very, very brave.
Madame Kovarian: Two minutes.

Enough with the showboating.
31 August 2011 | by (New Malden,England) – See all my reviews

I so hoped after Steven Moffat took over we would return to clever well thought out scary stories of the like that he had written in previous series and come away from the overblown bombastic and relentless showboating that the series had become. His first series in charge was mostly a success with some fairly good episodes, but the first half of this season has been a huge disappointment with the quality deteriorating dramatically from the first fairly good episodes to the disastrous mess of this one. It was just like one long trailer for the first 30 minutes and then it just got plain daft. It was more bombastic and overblown than it's ever been and that's unforgivable. I really hope the socks are pulled up in the next half and we get some decent (or even half-decent) stories to help us through the cold winter nights because I really miss those.
