You guys, I’m really excited to be recapping this episode for one simple reason – this is the first episode of Doctor Who that I ever saw. I’d had friends telling me for years and years that I’d love it, that I had to watch it, that it was amazing. And I’d always been pretty meh about it. But one Saturday night in 2010, I was home alone in Canberra and had nothing to do (because I’m cool like that), and when ABC News finished, Doctor Who started. And I was still pretty meh about it, but was too lazy to get up and put a DVD on, so I watched it. Conveniently, this is one of those episodes like Blink that requires no prior knowledge of the show, so it was basically the perfect starting point.
