Flesh and Stone – WOW!

Doctor Who - Flesh and Stone

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!

    WOW WOW WOW! I loved it, scary, suspense, great story and great acting!
    Those Angles aint half scary, I was glad at the start my cat decided to sit on my lap lol. Matt Smith is in danger of becoming one of my favorite Doctors!
    And I loved the end where he pushed Amy away when she was trying to snog him, such a refreshing change!

    I agree – really, the best part about the snogging scene was the Doctor pushing her away. No more soupy romance for the Doctor, it seems – what a relief! I did think that Amy’s attempt to seduce him was a little too much for a children’s program, but the way he responded pretty much redeemed it.

    *MILD SPOILER ALERT* By the way, there’s one interesting thing to note – when the Doctor first leaves Amy in the forest, he’s not wearing his jacket. When he comes back and tells her to “remember what I told you when you were seven”, he’s got it on again. Is this a production error…or something more? Like a future Doctor doing a little “rewriting”…

    Pretty incredible really. There’s nothing else I can say-lost for words for once.
