Doctor Who Prequel Short Arrives A Week Late

Shorts like this reassure me that Moffat hasn't lost it entirely as a writer. This prequel to The Name of the Doctor (really, isn't it just an exorcised scene that didn't have a place in the actual episode) is dark, moody, full of atmosphere, and a perfect demonstration of how the Whispermen could have been used, and a sore reminder of how useless they were in the episode. Of course, it gets bogged down with a touch of technobabble in the middle, but that's rather par for the course at this point, isn't it.

What the scene does do is explain how Clarence knew the coordinates of Trenzalore, the only question from the series finale that I wasn't that hung up on knowing.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
