So, (I know someone who really hates it when you start off with, “So …” But I’ve been doing it for so long it’s quite a part of me, so he’ll just have to not look.) the raw capture phase for Let’s Kill Hitler resulted in 1350 raw captures. Your average classic storyline will yield 75 to 100 maybe; those weren’t so picturesque. Your average contemporary episode gives between 300 and 700 perhaps. After the culling they are fewer of course. See The Process for the whole … well … process.
This episode was so gorgeous and also so emotionally charged, my capturing finger twitched 1350 times. Now, I watched this episode four times before I started capturing, twice just to fully absorb it and twice to get a feel for what parts I wanted, so it wasn’t all fresh and everything.
Obsessed, you say? Really?
By the way, love it!
That was brisk. And exciting. Full review later. I’m processing. Oh and of course screencaps very soon.
I’m sure half my universe has seen today’s episode by now, but I’m still anxiously waiting. So here’s another sneak peek from BBC America, who of course haven’t shown the episode yet. You know, time zones.
You’d think we’d invented simulcasting by now, right? No point in biting the hand that’s feeding me sneak peeks.
It’s a crash landing! Well you probably knew that already but look at it! Whee!

Is it just me, or do you also have a powerful urge to wash the dust off the time rotor?
