agapi42: Livia from I, Claudius (One)
[personal profile] agapi42
Well, I really don't have much to say about The Sound of Drums.

I missed the first couple of minutes, I think, of the pre-credit sequence and am hoping that I missed the explanation of how Ten, Martha and Jack got back.

I liked the eerie beat and the addition to Gallifrey canon was...interesting. Yay for cute Koschei.

But I feel as if the Time Lords are having a much more human time scale forced upon them.

Taken from their families and entering the Academy at age eight? That would mean that Susan had been attending the Academy for seven years; that Romana, prior to joining the Doctor, had spent approximately the last one hundred and thirty years in the Academy. I never saw Academy students as little kids.

And the Doctor's tenth body seems to be an extraordinarily short-lived one. The Second Doctor said he was four hundred and fifty, which means that the First Doctor must have been a few hundred years old when he regenerated, and he didn't look as old as that.
And in The Leisure Hive, the Doctor has a good few centuries added to the age of his fourth body and he doesn't look as old as that.

Yeah, pretty much reserving judgement for next week as, somehow, it doesn't seem to me like very much happpened this week.

And worrying over the fate of old companions on Earth at that time ie. really quite a lot.

I'm not sure whether to call this a review. I think not.

ETA: Looking through flist- woe is me, this must be 'fannish disconnect'. Hopefully I will appreciate it more on a second viewing minus family.
