I think I have just witnessed Hitler being left in a cupboard. Never mind. Stranger things happen. Far more importantly, I have just finished watching Let’s Kill Hitler – which was pretty damn good. For the first time we saw River (or at least first in River’s timeline). When I first saw that there was going to be a character called Mels in this episode I did suspect it might be her. And it was!
The Doctor also finally manages to confirm his death at Lake Silencio (Spanish for Silence probably related to The Silence, which we may finally work out what it is). He gives River the all important TARDIS diary.
We also understand why River is a weapon against the Doctor, however we do not yet learn why she is a weapon.
The most important, and interesting, thing from this episode is that we saw the beginning of the relationship of River and the Doctor which means that there isn’t too much of it left, as previous episodes suggest that the first time River met the Doctor would be his last (and vice verse). This could potentially mean that their time lines will be in sync for some, if not all, of the remainder of this series. Despite this, we are coming to the end of the Doctor’s relationship with River.
Here’s a list of my favorite bits from this weeks episode:
- “I just put Hitler in a cupboard”
- The crop circle
- The fact Hitler was described as an object most of the time
- That amazing tessellation effect (well done, whoever did that)
- The Corvette
- Fish fingers and custard!
- Heil High Five
