In 2MTL 136 we noted this new Doctor's increased alienness and, more importantly, his decreased ability to relate to the people around him. In today's podcast, we look within the fiction for a reason why.
So what's up with this Eleventh Doctor guy, anyway? It's not just that he's "alien" — it's that his emotional wires are SERIOUSLY crossed….
UPDATE: Where you hear the word "peanut butter" think "marmalade."
Could "The Time of Angels" live up to the relentless fan adulation, or was I doomed to disappointment because my expectations were just too inflated? Well…at least there was one big development in the Doctor's character that made the episode worthwhile.
