Random Ramblings of a Dilusional Depressive with Megalomanic Mania (and a soft spot for cute chicks in short skirts).

This one didn't do it for me. Despite the huge potential of the 'dream' versus reality storyline, not enough happened. The 'choice' didn't feel right - shouldn't we have had two futures to choose from, instead of one future and a trapped-in-the-Tardis present? It was kind of obvious that the future was the dream, and the double dream twist was too late to save the episode.
I was hoping for something between The Celestial Toymaker and The Mind Robber, two black and white classic Who tales. Perhaps with a nod to Edge of Destruction. But I was left with a bit of a twin dilemma. I didn't really care what happened as the episode unfolded, and I ended up disliking the Dream Lord almost as much as I do Graham Norton. There was not enough menace or power in the performance. He should have been someone like 'Q' in Star Trek TNG, all knowing and all powerful, not some annoying little man.
Rory's death was nicely done, but shame it wasn't for real! Now that would have given the episode a much needed edge.
Obviously a case of not enough psychic pollen. That's two episodes in a row not worth remembering! 5/10
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
