Episode 4 is a small climax!

The DW of this episode finally returned to its proper level, 03 is clearly a collective sleepwalking, or deliberately lowering our expectations. This episode has a small climax in the form of a single episode. Recall that many exciting episodes often need two episodes, such as Time of Angels, Silence in the Library, Last of the Time Lords, The Pandorica Opens. Going into the fifth season, double episodes ending a journey have become more and more frequent. Of course, this can be described more delicately and stacked with more details, but the relative density will undoubtedly be reduced. Let the audience have a feeling of not being able to work hard. In fact, I still like the way of fighting in season 4, the highest score is Midnight.

S604 takes the costume style of episode 03 and goes retro. There are many surprises in this episode. After tardis is embodied, it can objectively simulate the dialogue between two mad doctors. This is very enjoyable, and it is even more exciting than two doctors meeting in the air at the same time. Because the two doctors together are nothing more than memories and expectations, self-joking. The relationship between doctor and tardis is more profound. The dialogue between the doctor and tardis is his dialogue with a voice that understands him better than himself, which is very enjoyable. The doctor cannot regard tardis as an object. In a sense, it is officially the tardis that selects, shapes, and cultivates the doctor rather than the doctor using and operating the tardis. Therefore, after tardis is embodied as Idris, this relationship can be expressed more vividly, and this relationship is really moving. Idris's sad and happy expression when talking to the doctor perfectly captures the "mirror" theme, and at the same time reveals the uniqueness of this (the only surviving) Time Lord. (I once thought that Doctor SongRiver would have something to do with the tardis body.)


Other tear-jerking themes include the doctor's attempt to search and rescue the remaining Time Lord, which failed again, and the homesickness and loneliness surged +10086; House controlled tardis to appear again with mind control. Odd's appearance is like a soy sauce. If DT sees the last Odd's performance, it may be more sad than SM, so I think 11th and 10th are more hard-hearted than before, not as kind and chivalrous as before, considering myself more many. Probably this is not just the Regeneration of the doctor, but also the result of the generational replacement of the actors themselves.

The Impossible Astronaut quotes

  • The Doctor: I'm going to need a SWAT team ready to mobilise, street-level maps covering all of Florida, a pot of coffee, twelve Jammie Dodgers and a fez.

    Canton Delaware: Get him his maps.

  • River Song: When I first met the Doctor, a long, long time ago, he knew all about me. Think about that. Impressionable young girl and suddenly, this man just drops out of the sky. And he's clever and mad and wonderful, and knows every last thing about her. Imaging what that does to a girl.

    Rory Williams: I don't really have to.

    River Song: Trouble is it's all back-to-front. My past is his future. We're travelling in opposite directions. Every time we meet, I know him more, he knows me less. I live for the days when I see him, but I know that every time I do, he'll be one step further away. And the day is coming when I'll look into that man's eyes, my Doctor, and he won't have the faintest idea who I am. And I think it's going to kill me.
