"Gee, Mr Hitler..."

You know how I keep pointing out that Moffat's idea of "How to Do Drama" is basically an Indiana Jones movie? All I'm saying is, this would be a lot neater if Michael Sheard were still around.

Hmmm. On the other hand... let's look at this scene again. A gormless-looking boy-man with a bow tie fixation, being thanked by Adolf Hitler for obvious "shock" value, even though he's clearly out of his depth in Nazi Germany and we're used to seeing a real extra-terrestrial champion deal with this type of situation. Why does that remind me of something?

Oh yeah.

Doctor Who, 2011: all the wit and subtlety you've come to expect from a sixty-year-old Superman comic. Next week, River Song becomes Lana Lang by temporarily gaining a disfiguring mutation and turning evil.
