Rewatching Doctor Who

The past few months, I participated in The Doctor Who Project with my friends Allison and Justin. In anticipation of the next season, I’ve been rewatching episodes. Tonight I decided to rewatch one of my favorite two parters featuring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor: Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead.

Here is my review of these episodes from our ranking of season four:

“In my top ten. So much to talk about in this one. River Song!! This opens a door to a long running story. And this is just the beginning. Or the end. Dammit, River’s timeline is impossible. Trust Steven Moffat to introduce one of the most interesting and compelling characters in the show’s run. And the Vashta Nerada are just plain creepy. Donna’s story in this one is just heartbreaking, possibly foreshadowing how her story is going to end.”
10 Sonics.

After watching this episode again, with all my knowledge of River Song, it is even more amazing. Knowing her story makes this episode heartbreaking. And her chemistry with this Doctor who doesn’t even know her is fantastic. And to see the Doctor interact with her and realize that she important in his future, well it’s all wibbly wobbly, timey wimey, but it’s awesome.
