A Weeping Angels two parter - absolutely stonking!!,
This review is from: Doctor Who - Series 5, Volume 2 [DVD] (DVD)
What a joy the Weeping Angels 2 parter is! It just zooms along and leaves you breathless! Best opening 5 minutes in Who ever! Angel Dave and his chirpy 'dead' voice was superbly disturbing and more kudos to River Song's hallucinogenic lipstick - what a riot! This is simply a great chase story with some chilling and hilarious moments. Great stuff Moffatt! The Vamps in Venice looked stunning parading with their parasols and baring their fangs - probably the most beautifully shot scene ever in Who. But their true form was too comical to take seriously - the bodies were effective but the heads too silly. But great stag do scene at the beginning and overall, not too bad for a pedestrian Who story. Good thrills and spills viewing. Where else do you get this on terrestial TV? BTW, River Song and the Vamps are pretty sexy!! I think I've been a wee bit over zealous in my use of exclamation marks....
