As Radiohead once sang, “No Surprises”. The ‘experimental’ episode of New Who turned out to be largely an exercise in Russel T Davies showing how utterly fantastic, witty and adventurous he thinks he is, with a few genuinely good ideas buried under a mass of embarressing self-aware storytelling and chase sequences on loan from the Chuckle Brothers.
Still, only three more episodes to go. It’d be nice to be a little more excited, though. This season hasn’t killed my love of Who, but I think it’ll be even harder to care once Season 3 arrives next year. Old Who will live on, no matter what happens with New Who.
