I’ve also noticed how cinematic the visuals have become in recent years. Quite love it.
The mystery of the third floor in Amelia’s house is driving Jaime a bit nuts. I have to confess, that is certainly an awful lot of staircase just to go up to the attic. (Another?) Perception filter? Crashed Silence ship? Mere error?
I did not see this! How cute.
By the way, regular blogging and screencaps will properly resume once I’ve adequately recovered from a ridiculous amount of change in a very short time. Sorry!
Fresh screencaps for The Eleventh Hour are posted. Review is below the jump.
This is a great picture. I’ve come to really like Matt Smith, and I love moments like this that tie him into the greater continuity. Another such moment is in Vincent and the Doctor when he’s testing the identification machine, which also refers to the Hartnell image.
Here, this actually looks like a library card from 1963, typewritten. As an anachronist, I just eat this up. Here’s a zoom-in on the hi-def version:
I don’t usually save images with a lot of blur, but I made an exception in this case because this here’s comedy gold. I knew it would give me a laugh when appearing on random desktop, and that happened today. I know what’s going on here, and that’s hysterical.
Additionally, there are all the details you can see: the sketch on the wall behind the Doctor with a snapshot in the corner, the radio and the digital clock from the last century, the scattered money on the floor behind Craig, the magnet-encursted fridge. And there’s one detail you can’t quite see here but it flashes briefly earlier when the Doctor is making magical tea: there’s a crack in the wall behind the trash bin. A familiar-looking crack. I find myself searching for it here, although the out-of-focus blur would never let it show.
So, so glad to have this image.
