Time of Angels

I've watched the latest Doctor Who three times now. It has the weeping angels that were in my all-time favorite episode Blink. This is incredibly dense (is that the word I want?); the catacombs make the perfect backdrop to the storyline, I see more details each time. The supporting cast totally eclipses the doctor; Dr. Song fascinates, Amy Pond is just as good as she was in the first episode, and the Bishop - Father Octavian - brilliant.

Best rebuttal of the old 'no offense' line: Quite a lot taken, if that's alright, Doctor.

The show has redeemed itself from last week's Dalek flop. (Though I'm still not convinced that Matt Smith has enough depth to carry off the Doctor for very long.)
