Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Something irritated me about Forest of the Dead.

It was... whenever they showed Anita with her faceplate obscured, I was sure to check her communication device, and every time it was glowing steadily indicating she was still alive. And it continued to do so right up to and including the shot when the Doctor announced that Anita was dead. The next shot was of the communication device, with it blinking weakly even though it had been strong and steady in the very previous shot.


Other than that, it was excellent. Why can't Doctor Who be like that every week?!

Although admittedly the trailer for next week looks good...

Gah. I didn't even think to look. But I also know I'm intentionally suspending more belief just so I can enjoy them more.

Still, yes, excellent. They kept it all working on so many levels (even after I figured out the where Donna had gone).

They didn't. The Doctor told them to look him up, and they agreed to let him have a couple of hours to safely evacuate all the people.

Actually, they gave him "One day".

After he scared the crap off them when they looked him up on Wikipedia, of course. :)

I noted that exact same problem, as I was looking for it to. (As I noted in my blog entry!)
