Doctor Who 2.03 School Reunion

impressed

current mood: impressed

RTD was right - it's as though Elisabeth Sladen hasn't aged at all.


The evolving relationship between Rose and Sarah Jane was gorgeous - from the initial jealousy and bitching to their togetherness at the end. Sarah Jane having to face up to moving on, Rose having to face that the Doctor has a past and she is not his first companion. Lovely stuff.

Te Doctor's talk with Finch by the pool was fascinating. "If I don't like it, it will stop." There is so a great fall coming for him in the future. The whole chemistry between Finch and the Doctor throughout the episode was amazing - I don't normally hope for villians who seem fairly obviously killed off to come back, but for Finch and ASH, I'd definitely make an exception.

And the dialogue had several beauties that will be quoted for years.

"I can't believe it's you."

*scream*

"Now, I can."



And ASH frigging rocked.

They got a Companion back from the original series? Or did they bring in someone new?

*asks the fan in the US*

Woot!

Did the Doctor recognize her first and end up throwing his arms around her or what?

(Magneto Snoopy! Hee.)

He definitely recognised her on sight, and there was certainly hugging later. Just an all round solid, excellent episode.

Yes, ASH rocked. He was so awesome. So evil-looking.

It was a great ep. I spent all day waiting for the torrent so star1sar and I could watch it.

Hate the fact that Mickey the Idiot is going along for the ride.

Love Rose being jealous of Sarah Jane. Love the Doctor telling her that he wouldn't leave her, that she could be with him for the rest of her life... but making the point that it wouldnt be the end of HIS life when she left.

This episode was brilliantly funny and sad at the same time. Love it. Can't wait for next week.
