Yay, Sarah Jane Smith!
Yay, Rose with a huge gun! Go go go!
Me, presented with the pre-credits skyscape: Well, that's impossible.
Mr Pedia: They did tell you it was impossible.
What is the Shadow Proclamation? Oh, the Judoon dudes, kk.
That UNIT dude's American accent is painful. Possibly as painful as fake British accents on American TV are?
Yay, Jack, for kissing them both and confounding the crazy shippers!
Dalek ships instantly appearing: that's a few megadeaths, I assume.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we are at war." Pure cliche, and if I never hear it again in another screenplay it will be too soon.
Now the Doctor exposits about the Shadow Proclamation to Donna, mercifully briefly.
Yay, Donna being stubborn and correct!
Hrm, the move the Earth reference must be to classic Who. Darn me for not having watched it all already.
Yay, the Dalek hating UNIT!
If there's anything we know about Martha, it's that she isn't scattered into atoms. It's not that sort of show. Sigh.
Yay Donna's granddad! Paintgun: nice try. And Rose blasts it.
Donna: let the dude think. Shut up! He's not giving up yet and everybody knows it.
Is that my favoritest character ever, Harriet Jones, PM? YAY! The fan service here is extreme. Jack, you are irrepressible, and way more fun in Who than ever in Dorkwood.
Harriet Jones: "Millions of phones calling out at once."
Mr P: "And as suddenly silenced!"
Note, however, that they are just ambiguous enough about her fate that they can bring her back if they want. Yes, crazy fan speaking here.
I had to look up Davros. Remind me to watch all of classic Who some time soon, would you?
Rose! The Doctor! The touching reunion scene! The way-too-long run to meet each other!
Mr Pedia: We need a Dalek to interject now. It's gonna be too sappy.
And right on cue, a Dalek!
And regeneration. Can he come back as Chris Eccleston, please?
And SJS threatened, Ianto & Gwen threatened...
Me: "It has to end in the next few seconds, with all of this stuff hanging."
Right on cue, the end. Yay!
Mr Pedia: Next week, Davros, the Hands of Fate.
The non-spoiler version: That was fun! Completely crazy, but fun! Can't wait until next week.
