I've Been Watching...

This time: The War Machines. They hardly bothered with the DVD really. There are a couple of features on the Post Office Tower itself, and a bit about the restoration, and that was about it.

The story is quite tight, especially considering that many four parters can feel padded. We get the set up of WOTAN taking over, the first War Machine coming out, the second one breaking free, and then the final confrontation. Four solid beats that are played out well, as well as exiting Dodo and bringing in Polly and Ben.

And just how big are Polly's eyes? They seem huge on screen! And it seems clear that they brought in Ben for the action sequences, so not sure what that says when they felt the need to being in Jamie next season.

Nice decent story, like it a lot.
