Re: 31.02: The Beast Below

Hooked me from start to finish. I'm going to say that I think I enjoyed it more than the first episode.

Re: 31.02: The Beast Below

Yes, me too. It was claustrophobic, a little sad. And best of all an original summary of the nature of the Doctor. Okay, I realise he keeps saying 'this is what I do' etc, but the illustration with this metaphor was just ace. I felt 10 again, really.

And I was so pleased to see the return of quirkiness. It worked for Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, well, all the Doctors, and I've missed it.

Re: 31.02: The Beast Below

A solid episode rather than great. It gave the companion a chance to shine - 'Bonny Scot brings down the English monarch' :-)

Seemed a little like Gridlock (inverted) where there the 'creature' (Face of Boe) was above - keeping the Humans safe below.

Cheers, daveac

Re: 31.02: The Beast Below

I missed the first one (:O), but rather enjoyed this one. I'm liking Matt Smith. At times it seemed like he was trying to copy Tennant's style, and it wasn't quite working, but then he got back to his own again. He's certainly growing on me, and I like Amy.

Re: 31.02: The Beast Below

I loved this episode. It had me hooked from the beginning.

And this has been nagging me ... the repeated line about children crying. The Dr was there because a child cried. The star whale came because the children cried. I'm sure I've seen that in a book and I've asked several people and they feel the same only no one can pin it down. Does anyone know? Or am I totally wrong?

I do know there is an Elizabeth Browning poem with this but I cannot remember a book.
