Dinosaurs! On a Space Ship!

Alright.

Chibnall, you're forgiven for Cybervixen.

I don't think I've enjoyed a DW episode so much since WoRS.

I can't find a damned thing wrong with it.

No. Not a damned thing.

It makes up for last week. Which I liked. But didn't love. For reasons whereof I'm sure I'll speak later. Or not.

Damn that second goblet of wine for allowing me to be ebullient, yet incoherent withal ....

I love random and out-of-left-field. That said... it's jarring that the extra TARDIS residents aren't even handwaved particularly. Unless you count "are these our replacements?" Especially since one of them becomes a bit of a plot point.

But more importantly--how could one not love the triceratops? Awwwww.

When Nefertiti started the pawing on the Doctor I was worried and think other fans were as well. (I thought she was married to Akhenaten and Imohotep was a physician that predated--who cares?) She was grand fun, Intelligent, courageous, royal, but certainly the caliber of female in Egyptian whom we saw depicted as having their own chariots. Rory's Dad--was very much Rory's Dad. My girls joked that his question would be "What exactly is the function of a rubber duck" And he has tools and balls in his pockets. And Riddel and Nefertiti have promise, and lots of it, so I hope we see them again.

Silly Robots, baby dinos, and Mister Filtch as the snarling villain. I had fun.

I think Nefertiti might have been saying "Amenhotep" which was Akhenaten's name prior to his creation of the new religion.

Thanks. That means the Doctor snatched her at a critical time--before his revelation--did the encounter with aliens change his views about nature of religion. She would have married to her cousin, and although First Wife, there are letters that say that Nefertiti wasn't his favorite wife. There is record of a wife that dissappeared, and of course Tut's mommy died.

Nope, I was stone-cold sober, and I was completely incoherent afterwards, too. IT WAS JUST THAT HAPPY-FYING.

It also makes up for S5's Hungry Earth and Cold Blood- definitely more excitement than those two combined.

Eh, I did roll my eyes at the Nef/Ryddell hook-up at the end. Too bloody predictably annoying. And I held out hope (until the coming attractions at least) about Brian being a Companion for at least another episode or two while the Ponds did domestic stuff. But alas, middle age men aren't aesthetically pleasing enough to be Companions... :p

I think it was Rory's emergency medical supplies that had me grinning like a loon the most.

I enjoyed it. Probably won't become a new favorite episode of mine, but thoroughly enjoyable, fun, and some excellent lines. And Rory's dad was delightful.
