The Wibbly Lever!
14 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This brilliant Comic Relief two-part short plays out just as you'd expect from a Doctor Who comedy with all the so-called Timey-Wimey we've come to love in the Moffat era but done in a manner accessible to the large casual viewership it had, yet not dumbed down. It sees Rory get distracted by his wife Amy's skirt so that he breaks the TARDIS and makes it land inside itself. Now whenever someone steps inside it they end up back inside the iconic time machine but a few seconds earlier than when they stepped through the door. Part one ends with two Amy Ponds at once and to begin part two she flirts with herself which is absolutely hilarious (she does it again later when there's also two Rory Williamses). Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are excellent together, an early sign of the then-in-the-future brilliance of series six. They don't really have any choice in the matter, they have to be great in this because only they are in it, there are no extras or guest cast for this one.

Though the resolution of the story is somewhat "hand wavy" it's still the source of one of the most quotable lines in Doctor Who history (The Wibbly Lever!) and Matt Smith delivers the line with perfection. This two-part-episode is not one to take too seriously but is still a must-see for fans, acting as a great way to introduce newbies to the show with its less complicated but still extremely entertaining plot. How the Moff produced something this good with only three actors is beyond even the best of other writers but he makes it look easy. In short this is one of the best shorts you'll ever see, just don't think too much about it and enjoy the show! 9/10
