The book is composed of two sets of reviews of each episode. One from the point of view of someone who has just watch the episode and is commenting on it singularly. The second from someone who has watched the entire season and is then commenting on each episode.
These two points of view bring to light certain threads you may have missed or better explain aspects of the episode.
Personally, after reading this book, I had to go back and watch some of these episodes to see what the writers saw, which did two things for me. First, fueled my addiction of the the Who and second, made me really appreciate the complexity and controversy Steven Moffat wrote into the season.
In my opinion, that is about the biggest understatement in the history of world television. As I have seen in so many places in my 40+ years as a Citizen of Whoville, this show goes such a long way toward erasing the undeserved inferiority complex inflicted on television. The "Big Screen" vs the "Little Screen?" Fooey. This masterpiece of a show, made so much finer with Steven Moffat at the helm and Matt Smith in the starring role, puts the modern cinema to shame. It truly is a feature film made in an impossibly short production schedule. As a college teacher of creative writing and set design, I still have a few contacts in both parts of the industry, and I hear the same lament constantly: that the movie business is struggling because television is stealing all the great writers... and actors...and directors... and the lighting and sound gurus, the best set designers, stunt coordinators, makeup and costume designers, camera capos, the lot. They didn't run away; they just all went to work for Doctor Who. I have ten students who are determined to become interns for Barbara Southcott and Gordon Seed whether they are invited or not. The rest mostly argue over which Doctor they'd like to wake up and find in their shower.... An obsessed bunch, my kidlings, but they do know the best when they see it. I was so happy to get this book as a gift recently, because I had so enjoyed the previous edition. Keep them coming, Mr. Cooper. Perhaps they will help me get my students through the period of mourning which will commence come Boxing Day, when we more experienced fans have to nurse the newbies through their first regeneration.Read more ›
