*faint laughter from Britian*
We still dont even know what the THING WAS
I was simultaneously laughing and crying through this entire scene.
there is no monster in all of doctor who that terrified me as much as this one. I mean yeah there have been terrible, terrible creatures, but the doctor always managed to defeat them. He didn’t manage to defeat this one. It’s still out there, on the diamond planet and it would’ve killed him and taken over the whole universe if it wasn’t for that stewardess. Because if a creature like that can live on the diamond planet - a planet where everyone thought nothing can survive, what can it do to the rest of the world?
I bet it’s out there right now, having tea with the vasta nerada, Silence, and angels.
The thing that terrified me about this episode wasn’t the creature, or demon, or whatever it was. It was the humans. And their fear. They were ready to kill something because it was new. They were ready to kill the Doctor because of his intelligence and curiosity. That’s the thing about humans- we’re not bad, we’re just so scared of the unknown that, in situations like this, we’ll forget our morals and our minds and we will do anything- anything- to return things to normal.
This was one of less than ten episodes of DW I’ve ever seen, and if the rest of the show is anything like this, fuck Supernatural, it’s the scariest shit I’ve ever seen. Colin Morgan aside, at least SPN monsters are just that, supernatural- they’re not real, they can’t harm us (cannibalistic hillbillies etc aside, I mean in general). It’s like Voldemort vs Umbridge- the greater, distant horror will never be as frightening to you as the one you experience on a day to day basis.
