For all the buster about seeing old rooms, I thought it was kind of a let down to only see the same hallway over and over and then seeing the Corral control room ... well meh.
Thing is, while they might have only shown hallways this time, that's 1) still more than we've seen before in the new series, with the only other non-control room section seen before being the closet, and 2) an indication that yet more rooms will be made and shown in the future. Even if you weren't wowed by the corridors themselves, this is still very much a step in the right direction.
And yeah, what the fuck, Rory dead again? I'm at the point that I don't even care. It's Moffat's little joke.
While Rory dying has become ridiculous in and of itself, I'm just jazzed they did it right
this time. The major problem I've had with the previous instances was that there wasn't really any emotional content to them. Stock hazards and cliche scenes. We can watch CPR on any old show. DW needs something a little more.
I'm not saying I don't want them to stop with the Rory death scenes. I do want them to stop. I'm just saying I'm glad they managed to not fuck it up at least once.
Seriously, aside from say Human Nature/Family of Blood and Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone, has there been a two parter where both seemed fantastic?
I'm pretty happy with all the parts of both of Ten's Cybermen two-parters, personally. And the library two-parter, even if it did introduce my nefarious nemesis, River Song.
Could perhaps this be the origin of the Nestine Conscious and the Autons?
Hmm. I did think of the Nestene while watching the episode, but except for taking on the appearance of other people, they're not really the same. The Nestene is plastic where the Flesh seems to be more of a biological substance, and while the Autons have the same general copying limit as everything else in the DW universe (that being the need to keep a telepathic link with the person they're copying), the Flesh seems to be able to imprint another person's consciousness completely and permanently without having to keep the real person alive.
Of course, I just said "seems" there twice. The second episode may give more and/or harder information, but at the moment it would appear that for the Flesh to become the Nestene, they'd actually have to take a few steps backward in their sophistication.
