2.02 Tooth and Claw

Flicking through my flist, I appear to be the only one who wasn't bowled over by Tooth and Claw. Of course there were nice bits and all that, but on the whole, I didn't really care for it. Rose's constant allusion to Victoria's not-amusedness was pretty annoying, and the BBC One ident\kung fu monks rather pointless. What happened to them at the end? And why did Victoria lie about who killed the lead monk?

Great looking werewolf, though. Much better than that sad excuse of one they made of Oz in BtVS. Other bits I liked were The Doctor's Scottish accent, his use of the name Jamie McCrimmon, his licking of the mistletoe infusion coated panelling, his "Am I being rude again?", his working out there was a trap within a trap and how to spring it; Lady Isobel's courage and quick thinking; and of course, Ian Dury.

And, after having watched TCI, New Earth and this episode, I still don't feel the love with this Doctor as I did with the previous one from the very beginning.

I feel the same... although I enjoyed quite a few bits of this ep and it was better on the whole than the last ep I miss Chris... it just seems uber cheesy now... :(

Hee! Icon love!

it just seems uber cheesy now

YES! Yes, that is exactly how I feel about it, too. It just seems to me to be trying too hard right now...

I disliked exactly the same things you did, but overall, and especially compared to last weeks, this was a much, much more enjoyable episode.

Actually, despite its obvious flaws, I quite liked that one...Different strokes, I guess. ;-)

That's it exactly! There's just something about this season that makes me go, "stop with the cheese," way too often! meh..

Meh, indeed.

I hate feeling like this, but I just want my Doctor uncheesy. :(

Yup! Absolutely...

I wanted to feed her to the werewolf.

You were in no way alone in that...though I suppose we ought to cut her some slack for getting everyone out of that cellar in time.

I have similar feelings to this episode,it was a big improvement on the previous episode,but I`m still not feeling it.
Three where things I really enjoyed,but there is something,I don`t like that I just can`t put my finger on.
