Cool

Turn Left

Last week's Doctor Who episode, Midnight, was an okay science fiction yarn.  But if you've read A Fall of Moondust you've already seen it.  And it had a hard act to follow in the previous story, Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead.  Not bad, on the whole, but not insipired.

This week's episode, though, Turn Left, was awesome.

And if they did crib from Arthur C Clarke again, well, there are worse places to borrow ideas.

It's the first part in what promises to be a kick-ass season finale.

Just finished watching it, was pretty good but not hat original (Sliding Doors did the same thing 10 years ago).

Will we find the stars going out it due to some monks and an overgown pc though?

Next weeks does look awesome. (even if the 'get everyone back together for the big finale' trope is a bit overused)

2 On second thoughts, it was the opening and ending segments that really impressed me.  The whole middle part was okay, but the setting of the scene on that alien Chinatown and the ending scene (which I won't spoil) were what really impressed me.  I wrote that post just after watching it, so that ending was still with me.

Neat tie-ins to the previous three seasons as well.

3 Oh, and the opening sequence said to me: You need this in HD on a big-screen TV, not an AVI file on a 19" monitor!

That's not something you often felt while watching the original series!
