Wow! Okay, now I'm impressed. Those are probably the best two eps I've seen on
the show since season one. They're not quite up there with Empty Child/The
Doctor Dances... but they're damned good. I really am pleased.
The supporting cast was all strong, though I give particular props to the nicely
creepy person playing the son in the Family of Blood - that could've been goofy
pretty easily, but he did an excellent job.
I also have to say that this is easily the strongest performance I've seen from
Tennant. I would've thought that the romance and the inevitable dissolution of
it would have been too cliche to get to me at all. But y'know what? It was
sweet. It was affecting. I really felt BAD for him. I got involved emotionally
in a way I haven't with Tennant thus far, and that's a wonderful thing.
The story was interesting, the villains and their scarecrow army were creepy,
the writing was good, the guest acting was good, the Doctor was good... yay!
