Why "Tooth and Claw" was a very 'phwoar' episode of Doctor Who

I could list some of the reasons Rob Buckley gave for why it was just a great episode of classic Who-ness, but in terms of the 'phwoar' factor it had to be glorious ease with which Tennant both suitably adopted and then slid out of using his Scottish voice.

I mean, I do understand completely why they didn't go with him using his native accent throughout the series, but there is just something lush about his speech patterns. And it was SOOO well done how he switched from one to another.

Sigh.

And next week of course we have 'Giles', Sarh-Jane Smith AND K-9. Almost makes it worth having to strip a room this weekend ready for the new bathroom being built (it will be sometime before installation!)

I liked Rose's realisation that our beloved royal family are probably werewolves.

I liked the idea of someone creating half a dozen clones of Pierluigi Colloni, a hundred years before his birth and training them to be martial arts monks.

I mean Pierluigi Collina of course...

Ha. Skuds, glad it wasn't just me!

Rob said...

Me too. I just wish the real Collina had pulled out some of the kung fu on occasions in Serie A.....

Did you read Struggling Marie on the subect of the DT fashion shoot? Heresy........

EineKleineRob: Hmm... the heresy on the guardian fashion shoot...

My stance is this: yes it was a bit of a NO!NO!NO! selection of clothes, but frankly I was too busy imagining him getting changed...

Sorry to lower the tone...!
