Doctor Who, 501 - The Eleventh Hour
Okay. Okay. Now that I've had time to gather my thoughts, and I'll be honest, gather up crazy picspam material, it's time for a reaction post / episode picture spam.
Some basically non-spoilery general emotions first.
IT, in case that wasn't quite apparent from my last post. When I first heard that RTD was leaving, I felt a little uneasy and worried, but now I welcome out new overlord Moffat with open arms. My feelings on Karen and Matt are the same, but we knew that before already.
I thought it was absolutely magical, in the truest sense of the word. Idk if it was because Eleven's the first Doctor who I've had to actually wait for (I caught on with the show right after Tennant's first Christmas special, then quickly watched the first season and then the second one was already starting) and for who I have been along for the entire regeneration shebang, but there just was something so incredibly wonderful about this episode. When Amy saw the TARDIS for the first time, I felt the overwhelming awe, just like she did and my breath caught along hers.
And Amy's story was just beautiful and I love that she has history and sort of.. inner workings. I always felt that was something the companions lacked a little. Well, okay, Donna had the thing with feeling inadequate, Martha was always jealous and Rose.. well, Rose was defined by her love for the Doctor. But I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. In a way, Amy has more history with the Doctor than any of the others.
And Eleven's just brilliant, what else can I say about him.( NOW COMES THE PART WITH THE HUGE PICTURE SPAM AND QUOTES AND GENEREAL SPOILERY SQUEEAGECollapse )
