While Dinosaurs on a Spaceship was mostly fun adventure, this is a rather morality test set in the Old West. While, I did love Crichton from Farscape as the Marshall, it comes down to the other alien doctor who sorta steals the show. The dark mirror of the Doctor that we sorta lost when the Master died. Speaking of the Master, he got a shot out which might be the first time he has been mentioned to the Ponds. The end result is contrived, but it does end fairly well. Amy and the Doctors confrontation with the guns was a nice bit of business of showing why the Doctor needs companions.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Originally posted by dMrDecent episode, but I did find myself wondering why Amy never raised the whole "killing people's bad" thing *last* week.
Because she was busy tranquilizing Raptors.
A lot of times, the Doctor gives bad guys an out and they refuse to take it. Only Nefertiti saw the Doctor being callous to Solomon and she was in no mood (or natural inclination) to be merciful.
Yeah, but Amy must've been aware of what happened to Solomon even if she didn't know how cold the Doctor was in offing him. She obviously feels pretty strongly about the no killing thing but at the start of this week's episode she was laughing and joking like nothing had happened. You don't think she'd at least have mentioned what happened to Solomon wasn't cool before heading off into Mercy?
I had zero problem with the Solomon being killed or the story they were trying to tell, I just thought the execution (no pun intended) was a bit clunky.
I also liked the episode in general. It seemed like half of it was just putting the camera on Carell and Will and letting them go (such as the entire cold open, or should I say hot open). But I thought he was hilar.
