Day of the Moon
To repeat my previous post:I will be irregularly posting responses to series six of Doctor Who. I will be assuming that readers have already seen it--so no spoiler tags or plot summeries, yaddah yaddah yaddah
Day of the Moon opens six months after Impossible Astronaut, with Canton Everett Deleware III tracking down Rory, Amy and River while the Doctor is chained in Area 51 as the government attempts to build 'the perfect prison---"
"And it still won't be enough!"
We get to see more of the incrediableness that is River Song--jumping off a skyscraper into the TARDIS swimming pool (which we still don't get to see), shooting Silents while causally flirting with the Doctor...
Moffat continues with his mind-twisting plot elements--Amy's pregancy, the girl in the suit, Neil Armstrong's foot, and something in the corner of your eye.But the ending was absolutely the craziest.
And we won't be seeing her for another few episodes at least. agggggggggggg
I was also surprised that the Silents were defeated so easily--or were they? I am aware of the whole time-wimey thing, but if they tried to blow up the TARDIS in 2010, they can't all be gone. It's all a trick on their part.
Did they really have to throw in the Canton thing at the end? It didn't add anything to the story at all. Ah, well. At least it wasn't as blatent as some other instances.
One last thought...the "perfect prison" was a term used to describe the Pandorica. The outside of that box did resemble the Pandorica, after all, even if the inside was bigger...who made the Pandorica after all?
