The Zygon Invasion

Post by tony ingram on Sat Oct 31, 2015 9:06 pm

OK, that was not bad at all.
But I guarantee that the Kate who the Zygon Clara spoke to at the end was actually the real Kate.

I reckon you're right.

Loved the classic series references! (Apart from the one about Harry Sullivan designing a killer gas, which was very disappointing.)

I enjoyed it. A bit dark, and heavy on the Middle East references, but well done.

Seems to have sparked controversy, over here. Some saying Doctor Who should do this sort of thing more often, others that it should stay away from politics altogether.

I have never understood the pure escapism stance, that fiction should never reflect anything about the real world. I would find that boring.
Although, from what I've seen, people don't mind references to the real world if they agree with them.

I think the problem with this one is that some of the audience think it's telling us to sympathise with the refugees, and others think it's telling us to fear them...

I think it's telling us: "Some people are nice, but some people should be feared."

Perhaps that message is so simple that some people can't see it.

Perhaps it's actually telling us never to trust shapeshifting orange aliens, except when they're actually trustworthy? Yes, that works, I think...

And you can't tell who's who just by looking at them.

I don't know that there was a specific message, just that they used some real world ideas for their fiction.

Or that you can never really tell if YOU are the evil twin.

I suppose the evil twin would never see themselves in that role.

I'm not sure, my niece wants to be a supervillain. I think she'd be happy to be the evil twin.

I always wanted to be a Bond villain. I basically just want the huge undersea base.

Well, with the undersea base, obviously there'd have to be the obligatory army of minions, but aside from that, yeah...

You'd need people to do the catering. And the plumbing. You can't do your own plumbing if you're a supervillain.

No, I favour the classic private army of leather clad Amazons.
