I was worried The Sound of Drums, part 2 of the 3 parter season finale, last Saturday would do what has happened in several of the recent two parters: lose all the momentum built up in the first half. Thankfully it didn’t. Fingers crossed part three delivers a proper closing punch to the season and doesn’t turn into a silly wimper or a bad special effects fest.
I know Doctor Who is silly fluff. Till someone has the nerver to make real science fiction in Britain it’s the best champion we’re going to get for the idea that we can do science fiction and we shouldn’t just leave it to Americans to do because they have more money for special effects.
