Gotta love Mark Gatiss’s geeky enthusiasm for the show.
Mark Gatiss treats the legends of Doctor Who’s creation as only a longtime fan can, in a lovely tribute full of the exasperated acceptance that rose-tinted hindsight brings.
…I’m not going to have my “Day of the Doctor” blog ready tonight.
“C.S. Lewis meets H.G. Wells meets Father Christmas. That’s the Doctor.” Perfect.
I was absolutely convinced that this would air in the U.K. immediately after the 50th-anniversary episode on the 23rd. I guess someone figured that would be Doctor Who overload.
It’s going to be Time Lord overload for the next couple of months across the BBC…
Comic-Con audience got two trailers, but no one else can see them (yet). What could possibly be the benefit to withholding trailers like this?
I’d say I called this, but it’s such an obvious choice to air that episode that it hardly required any great prognosticatory skills.
There’s a ton of stuff here that kinda doesn’t make sense, but I kinda liked “Hide” anyway. It reminded me of the Gothic era of Tom Baker’s tenure as the Doctor, which might be the single most consistently fun stretch of the show ever.
Good choice, I’d say…
