Dr. Who: Go, read this!

Faith Like Mustard Seeds
For anyone who loved "Flesh and Stone" - and perhaps even more, for those who didn't - may I recommend this absolutely brilliant essay by sahiya ? And by "brilliant," I mean, the light from the bulb that went on over my head when I read it. She finds a theme in the story that was there, writ large and lovely, that I didn't see at all, because sometimes I'm that thick. And she writes about it beautifully. Go! Read! What are you waiting for?

Psst . . . thanks for the link and the praise, but the link actually goes to the comments, rather than the essay.

So it did ... fixed now, and thanks for letting me know!

Thanks. I just watched those eps last weekend, and I'm fonder of Blink (and not sure the angels are worth more than that one, brilliant ep).

Sahiya is an excellent writer, whose clear prose and excellent organizational skills make reading her a pleasure. Hope you enjoy what she puts forth, even if you're not a ToA/FaS fan!

It was a good post, and I agree with her about the overarcing theme of the episodes.

Still not so thrilled with SM's episodes, especially dealing with Big Themes. Not much brain today, though, and would prefer to see the eps again before elucidating. I just thought that the two eps had more weak points than even I, as an SF fan (visual & written) fan, want to deal with.

I'll be interested in whatever thoughts you have on this, eventually.
