Class 1.7

What Quill did indeed. It's weird, it's good, it ties in to the whole rest of the season so far, but in lots of ways it's its own show, like Quill goes off in her own subgenre.

I'm not keen on one specific point: dead black man. Do I need to do counting for this show? I mean it has diversity which is why bad things keep happening to diverse people, but still, specifically, black man kept a slave and killed. To go with the death in Night Visitors? Which was again in one sense of someone unfree? I just... you know that 'do I see this' feeling? *sigh*

I like how Quill accessorises. Choker and bracelets solid metal looking. Not letting observer forget.


I don't quite know what to do with the Doctor leaving her like that in the first place, or the whole presence of freedom fighter terrorist slave in the story at all. I mean she's interesting, but she's an argument, and not one that resolves.

Though I like how school governors fit in the argument here.

I liked all the locations in this episode and the excuse to take a tour of alien thought patterns and the argument about religion or lack thereof and how freedom is just plain complicated as a concept. And how they started with the overlooked ones, dreaming of freedom. It's the power of belief, the power of stories, hope in a box again.



I have no idea how this all will wrap. I can come up with some ideas, they've left a lot of parts around, but I don't know what they'll do with them.

And now I care enough I'll be tense all week wondering which way they'll jump.
