Doctor Who: 'The Unicorn and the Wasp' (S4E7)

Was alright, I suppose. Next...

Updated following Marcus's comment below:

Yes, sorry, I felt the need to comment on that one but didn't have the time. I quite liked it but also felt it was overly silly (a giant wasp?) and overly talky for its own good. The whole thing about why the wasp did everything in the style of an Agatha Christie story was one plot contrivance too far. But I think the overall idea of trying to do a Doctor Who murder mystery was great, I'm just not convinced the actual end result was as good as it should have been.

Oh Ricky, it was fun. Doctor Who is allowed to be fun sometimes. Fenella Whatsit was great, the setting was great, the wasp a bit cheesy, the finger pointing silly, and Donna is becoming really quite good.

The start, where Donna goes all posh on Felicity Kendall, was straight out of "Tooth & Claw" where Rose goes all Scottish. So the crush is absent, but these two are having as much fun together as the Doctor and Rose - which never happened in Martha's time. I rather like it.

And where is your blog about Stephen Moffett taking over from RTD? The writer of the best episodes (Girl in the Fireplace - possibly the best ever - and Blink)taking over the helm? Surely a cause for some celebration?

See change in main article above.

As for the Stephen Moffett story, I had heard something about that but have been too tied up with other things lately to read up on geek stuff.

But it could be good. We'll see.
