Demons Run When A Good Man Goes to War
“A Good Man Goes to War” was one of those episodes of Doctor Who that I was really looking forward to more than usual. I was excited to see him call on his friends, to see Rory be a hero, to find out what was happening with Amy, and to learn more about the mysterious River Song. I was also counting on this episode to make the last few rather weak episodes really count for something, justifying them in a way so long as they satisfied the greater whole with this one.
“A Good Man” was a peculiar episode of Who where nothing really happened, but the premise and the hype called for massive movement. The set up in the episode seemed quite grand but when it came down to the action not much really went on. At first glance the episode is exciting but great deal less impressive upon a second look and further discussion. It’s like Moffet got caught up in the timey-whimy fun and the misdirection and let the point runaway from him.
