Flesh and Stone – WOW!
Well, if you enjoyed The Time of Angels, you must have loved the gripping 45 minutes that was Flesh and Stone, the latest episode of Doctor Who!
If you haven’t seen Flesh and Stone yet, you might care to look away now – this article may contain some mild spoilers…
Steven Moffat certainly seems to have played a blinder, giving us a cliffhanger resolution that wasn’t just ingenious, it also shaped the rest of the story. Flesh and Stone is exactly the sort of Doctor Who fans were wanting when The Grand Moff took over – and he hasn’t disappointed!
While the truth about River Song is a new element, we hope that it can’t quite be true – but why dwell on that when there is potentially the truth about Amy Pond and the crack in the universe that is apparently following the Doctor and his companion?
As for the Weeping Angels – there is one superb moment which we’re not going to go into detail about right now, but on first viewing they’ve been cranked up to be not just a superb one-off foe but a true modern classic!
We’ll have a full review from Flesh and Stone later this weekend – in the meantime, you can catch it again on BBC iPlayer!
