In this week’s installment, our raggedy Doctor visits his version of the Overlook hotel, where he meets a devilish beastie, a sad clown, and a group of people he can’t save.
In a departure from the usual recap-by-retelling-the-story format I normally use, I thought I’d turn the discussion over to the readers today with a few points from me as a starting point. I feel like I need to experience this episode from some other perspectives to really get it.
Do you think this is the last we’ll see of Amy and Rory?
Was this a satisfying way to move on from them as companions?
How does this ending compare to that of Rose, Martha, Donna, Jack, and Wilf?
Do you think the Doctor will get a new companion, or has he decided to go it alone, lest he mess up anyone else’s life?
Is it just me, or did Amy and Rory seem relieved to be off the hook?
What would be in YOUR room in the scary hotel? (For me, it’d be a completely dark room full of spiders. Or at least that’s what I’m telling y’all.)
