Scene-by-scene rambling and a few thoughts at the end ...( Quite a lot of rambling )
*Chris and Billie are amazing. Their faces are so expressive. You don’t need their reactions to be spelled out by the dialogue, you just have to watch their faces. And their chemistry really is incredible. Whether they’re fighting, flirting (sort of), serious or laughing, they look so natural together.
*As for the action plot, uh, well, I said in a comment to another post,
‘If I think too hard about the plot here, I'll start hitting my head against the wall. That's probably the only way it'll make sense. (I mean, even with the sun filter half down, surely Rose would have suffered burns? Eye damage? And those cracks in the 'glass' - why wasn't the oxygen sucked out? Excuse me, need to go bang my head against the wall.)’ As for the Giant Fans of Death, I just … aghh.
*I found it interesting that in this, Rose’s first real adventure, that she has no chance to save herself or help the Doctor. Rose is trapped in that room, waiting for someone to save her and Jabe is the one who gets to help the Doctor (and get very dead in the process but that’s not the point.) I wonder why they wrote it that way? Maybe to show that Rose really is way out of her depth here?
*I would also like to know if The Face of Boe had a chat with Rose at any point …
I could go on and on but this is quite long enough already.
