The End & Start

Thoughts: Doctor Who "The End of Time, Part 1"

Scattershot and Un-Meta Thoughts on The End of Time, Part 1
     I didn't get (or haven't yet gotten) an overall thematic response to this episode. That's not, however, to say that I'm speechless about it. The short version? I liked it, was moved by it, and thought it was put together with the usual crazy quilt of intelligence, cheese and sporadic creative laziness. 
     Some of my immediate reactions follow, most of them are cribbed and edited comments I made over at Television Without Pity's episode thread.
     (And speaking of TWoP, Jacob's recap of Waters of Mars is up. Damned good stuff, and far more filled with love than my meta-ramblings.)
     As for EoT1, I've watched the episode twice thus far, and I liked it even more the second time.
