review-ish-thingy: the girl who died (doctor who)

-no maaajor spoilers-

OKAY. SO. YOU KNOW HOW THE TWELFTH DOCTOR BASICALLY STOLE HIS FACE FROM THE GUY IN POMPEII? THAT’S FINALLY ADDRESSED IN THIS EPISODE WITH A FLASHBACK.

The plot is mainly vikings vs. deadly warrior race + a plot twist involving Ashildr. I’ve been waiting for an episode set in the past so that there’s a bit more history, and HERE IT IS. There’s no way not to love the vikings.

And especially not Ashildr. Just look at her! And the cool-looking mysterious background . . .

Anywayyy. This episode’s got some pretty awesome quotes, like so:

  • “People talk about premonition as if it’s something strange. It’s not. It’s just remembering in the wrong direction.”
  • “Fly like a bird, run like a nose.”
  • “Winning is all about looking happier than the other guy.”
  • “What trickery is this?” “Says the man with a fake face!”

And naturally, the episode is very much worth watching. It’s fast-paced, but it gets a lot of stuff packed in. And . . . yeah! That’s about it.

MAGICAL WORD OF THE DAY/WEEK/MONTH/WHATEVER:

Risorial, which means “pertaining to laughter”.

-THE END-
