What did you think of the Doctor Who season finale (both parts)? Yeah, yeah, the finale aired over a week ago but Doctor Who is usually pretty memorable, for good or bad. It seems fan reactions are all over the place. You might count me among those who didn’t like it, but “dislike” is too strong a word.
In general, I don’t care for episodes that focus on the Master, now Missy. (“The Mistress”is a terrible name for her. It sounds like a kept woman.) The character is so off-the-charts whack, it’s hard for me to understand his/her motivation. It seems to boil down to Missy’s desperate desire to win back The Doctor. But how is destroying the planet he loves going to do that? Then again, she is insane, quite literally.
A few weeks ago, YouTube’s Emergency Awesome/Charlie had said he felt that Danny was going to be tragic figure, likening him to Rory Williams’. But Rory was well-defined, where Danny wasn’t. We saw Rory’s interactions with Amy and felt their love. With Clara and Danny, we were only told they loved each other. We didn’t see it.
