So, let’s get down to reviewing. Sorry, it’s been a bit of break since the airing of the episode and my actual reviewing. I deemed school more important to a blog, so I watched, but did not write. But now, exams are over, so I can blog as much as I like J
So, Let’s Kill Hitler. I think it was a pretty good episode; my favourite bit was, of course, the scene where Mels brings Rory and Amy together. I’m a sucker for Rory-cuteness. Rory was adorable and the sassy Mels was a really good character. The revelation of her being River was clever too, and I particularly loved the line where Mels/River tells Rory, “Oh shut up dad, I’m concentrating on a dress size!”
Rory was absolutely amazing in this episode! He was really manly, and yet so vulnerable at the same time. For example, when he punches Hitler then grabs his gun but doesn’t really know what to do. Also, when he is told to put Hitler in the cupboard, Arthur Darvill displays comedy gold.
However, as good as the reveal was about River, I didn’t feel like it was very important. Maybe I’m just not used to Alex Kingston’s River Song trying to kill the Doctor. It just didn’t seem right to me, all the Judas tree poison lipstick, the jumping out the window, the killing soldiers with regeneration energy flying from her hair, or the giving up of her regenerations. The revelation seemed to just be pushover so that Alex Kinston could have the line “I’m going to wear lots of jodhpurs!” Also, because we have now seen how Alex Kingston’s River was created, does this no longer mean that we will see the Doctor’s and River’s timelines going backwards and forwards simultaneously, but will jump around?
|Hmmm... Cleavage much?|
Another thing that annoys me is the image choice for previous companions. They were promo pictures. Couldn’t they have gotten something more natural? Like them smiling around the console or something. I didn’t like it. I also think they should have made Amelia more of a hologram for that scene. Just my thoughts.
Also, did the Doctor start World War Two? Maybe? He says to Hitler, “The British are coming.” With the intent to scare him, so perhaps the Doctor was the cause for it. I wouldn’t be surprised. And didn’t anybody else think that the guard looked remarkably like Captain Jack? And one of the people at the restaurant look like Sohpie Owens?
