    Oddly enough, Shakespeare Code–which is supposed to be the fun fluffy episode–is the one that bothered me the most on rewatch. The Dalek episodes are terrible, but I went into the rewatch with rock-bottom expectations and found myself interested in some of the ideas they were trying and failing to pull off. Shakespeare Code, though, is where the dynamic between the Doctor and Martha bothers me the most. Not just that he’s an oblivious alien flirt who doesn’t realize how many mixed signals he’s giving off, but the way he’s constantly mocking and cutting Martha down for being smart and asking smart questions. I don’t even have words for how much that rubbed me the wrong way.

    Gridlock OTOH I like more every time I watch it. It’s a completely bonkers summation of what the new series can do at its best.
