Doctor. You never let me down, do you? My favourite bit was when the doctor despairs. Ecclestone works his jaw muscles silently, and nothing happens for a few moments, except the muffled sound of the daleks screaming outside.
As always I can hardly add to the fine comments made elsewhere. Except to say that I have felt all along that this series was made by people like me, and the point they are trying to make is that a story event is nevertheless an event, a real thing. And the (literally) quixotic notion that a story isn't protected from the world, but exists in it. And what I hope most of all is that this will embolden people who make stories to be more engaged with reality rather than realism.
