Doctor Who: The Sound of Drums

With the exception of The Empire Strikes Back, the middle part of a three parter is generally the leanest part of the story. This episode felt like it. Lots of running about achieving not very much, a little plot development, a little (inconsequential) action, etc. But mostly it was the build up to another world-in-jeopardy, end of season cliffhanger.

So it held my attention but wasn't really great. John Simm was enjoying himself though.

Hey Ricky, have you noticed an increasing connection to another classic Sci-Fi series of yester-year?

We have a base in the clouds, mention of angels, and of course the indestructible captain!

...all we need now are those two circles of light or a flashing scene change to "Da-da-dum de-da-da-dum!" ;-)

Yes. The cloudbase was a bit too much of a homage. But I hadn't actually connected that thought to the indestructible captain. Ooooh.

The wee shperical alien things are a bit like the Zeroids in Terrahawks too.
