Having watched The Name of the Doctor, I think what it tried to do, it did well.
It’s what it forgot that annoyed me.
I liked Clara’s storyline, I thought it was a little uninspired (haven’t we seen something similar before?) but it was well done for what it was. Plus, I’m quickly falling in love with Jenna-Louise Coleman.
What annoyed me was Trenzalore. It was HEAVILY implied that there was some mechanism on Trenzalore that forced people to tell the truth when a question was asked. None of that here; the Great Intelligence was basically blackmailing the Doctor into talking.
Furthermore, what the hell happened to the Silence? We’ve been hearing about Silence falling since Matt Smith became the Doctor; now, when they were all ready to reveal the asking of the Question through which Silence will fall…nothing. All of a sudden, it’s the site of the Doctor’s grave? What? Three seasons building up this plot, and it fizzles like it was lost to the Time Vortex? That better not have happened.
Moffat better be lying in wait to tie it all together, either in the 50th or beyond. It was a good episode, but the Silence plot was forgotten for Clara’s. It wasn’t nearly as great as it could have been, but I hope I’m proven wrong in the future.
You know what would be really cute?
Since season 9 is just basically the wedding weekend and Ted probably wont meet the mother till the series finale, thus we wont really get to see their relationship blossom, if after HIMYM is over, the creators would make like a movie or a tv special called ‘How I Married Your Mother’ in which Ted sits down his daughter the night before her wedding and tells her the story of how he married the mother.
Craig, Carter, get on this!
This…would actually be a really great idea. As said, it’d be best as a movie, not another TV show, but it would be pretty awesome.
