Family of Blood: Doctor Who 3.9
As you know, I've been a little disappointed with Doctor Who series 3. It's just been far too silly. I LIKE silliness, and even I've thought it was all too silly and predictable.
Well... these last two episodes, Human Nature and Family of Blood, have impressed me no end.
We have a scathing anti war message, complicated emotional stories and a Doctor defenseless. But none of these concepts drag on, nor bore you, as we also have a determined Martha, creepy scarecrows and non stop action. One scene has the boys of the school shooting down the scarecrows with machine guns and then, just when you are thinking this is not very Doctor Who, Mr Smith (the Doctor in human form) orders a retreat and runs away. He might bring death and destruction where ever he goes but the Doctor does not enjoy it.
