One thought on “Saturday reading

  1. Well, my favorite Who from this era was the End of Time Part II — I mean, really, how can you beat Timothy Dalton chewing the scenery as Rassilon?

    Of Matt Smith’s debut… well, as I’ve said elsewhere, I think Matt has gotten overall weak scripts. I’m tempted to go with Victory of the Daleks, because, well, Daleks, but I think The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood is the best of this season. But a lot of the most MEMORABLE Smith moments come in other episodes — his epic speech to the Atraxi (“… what happened to THEM?”), his multi-timelined solution to the Pandorica problem, the tearjerking finale of Vincent and the Doctor, etc., and Rory’s becoming the Last Centurion is certainly awesome.

    Worst… Amy’s Choice, I think. That or The Lodger, but that one led to another very fun episode.
