A highlight from Episode 50: Nobbut a Dream! - Part 2
So next up amy's choice Written by simon. Nye and directed by kathryn morris had more shirt at an amy's pregnant roy's gonna ponytail and the doctors board initial thoughts. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it then. I enjoy it now. Yes i'd forgotten how much it lent into the relationship aspect. I'd i'd forgotten. That is fundamentally the crux of the episodes. It's stupid of me to forgotten but i really like i really like the setup and It seems an obvious solution. But it keeps you guessing. Introduces us to the pregnant world first. So that when it flips back to the tartus where we're slightly on the back foot. Yeah thoroughly enjoyable forty. Something minutes of tv yes. It was always one of my favorites of that series but nothing to remember been overlooked at the time because of monsters empower for big arcor. Anything and just looked sposa. Bill i think to some viewers and also gaven me with the was it trailed. Was it trailed with only clips of the fake village dream worlds to encourage because because we've got ucla adult coming and going of his memory. That's we've got the use of the idea that might be time jumps. And then he's coming going in their lives so that that was supposed to set up the other that might be plausible. It skipped five years especially especially at the beginning of the series of has lots of them. Well i mean. I think that's why we were white successfully sold star trek because the eleventh hour is predicated on the idea that that is one big time jump so the fact that he would do it again doesn't seem very improbable steven moffat place. Fuster and looser think with our comfort zones in that respect. Misdirected delta explains it at the end that we don't think we've been dreamed on encourages to think it's choice between two dreams. Yes yeah and of course. That's not what the dream is done. That's what simon spoiler alert on this podcast. Just ending their feels like twenty two thousand ten long enough ago. I probably broken the etiquette of discussing old stores. No matter how old they are still supposed to go through the methodically. Rather make your first discussion points. The the climax but i him care put us everyone else. Does it draws sunny initial thoughts about amy's choice. Yeah it's pretty helpful and into the thing of seeing it as a bit of our also van may be in in series for it was an it. You'll my til bank. I count on this evening cold weather. I have seen since transmission. But some there's something he'd classic line but yeah no saudi. Saudi enjoyed it. And i enjoyed it and i enjoyed it this time. I those does much more to it than i remembered. Yes yeah. It wasn't span. Compared to some of the. I guess it didn't didn't start toward a full so matt's smith instant way some of the other cities that we've been watching occasionally some of the some of the stuff we've gone bloody good. It didn't it. Didn't absolutely leap out of that. Goes on this one. But you've which isn't to say. He's not he's not perfectly good but it's just not did start is the as tiny performance but yet taibbi joins us fantastic of calls and the other thing that we may be one of his yet to say when the how much of this is some annoy and oral b. I i didn't 'cause suspicions it's a sort of basic question of is also the hell why the hell haven't we had him back because it's never heard anything either way but it doesn't feel like him and he's never written anything else like. This is a sitcom to there. Certain he's he sees the men behaving badly goro. Yes yeah yes. The connection is hearts would isn't it. yes because it over to production. Yes yeah so sorry. I shouldn't yet the the virtue production. You ask writers to contribute. When you'll you'll confident in them. And it's easy for us to forget now walter. Absolute giant of television men behaving badly was in the sunday the late night mid mid to late nineties and he single handedly wrote that year upon year and he is a good writer and yet it still feels like really left field choice in terms of a doctor who writer the outcome is a terrific episode. As to how much he wrote versus rewrites the script was delivered the day before the read through and the read through was the day before shooting started. I don't know what you wanna take from that. But i think simon nye is probably likely to have delivered it earlier than that. But you know that that at catalysis that if i wanted to do a passover it he did it late in the day but that doesn't mean that he. It was a page one rewrite or anything like that i mean.
