SFX's teasers for The Power of Three:
Three-quarters a brilliant episode, only let down by a disappointingly “Is that it? climax. But there is a lot of fun to be had along the way.
Until that climax it’s like a very appealing mix “Turn Left” and “The Lodger” with an Quatermass story taking place in the background. Though it has its own unique structure too.
Despite being an episode that concentrates on Amy and Rory, it’s an absolute tour de force for Matt Smith’s Doctor – he’s a delight to watch.
The Doctor uses a skill he hasn’t used since season five.
There are some very creepy moments, made creepier by how crazy everything else is going on around them.
Brian is very thorough.
There are some lovely moments of recognition for fans.
There as return to those “appearing as themselves” cameos… big time. And very well chosen a couple of them are too.
The biggest laugh concerns a song you never wanted to hear again.
It’s often at its best in its quieter, character moments. There’s a very simple, but incredibly moving scene between Brian and the Doctor.
“Welcome back, Lefty!”
One guest character is rather wasted, but another is simply brilliant.
Amy has a new job.
Someone has to water the flowers.
There are lots of surprises.
Amy wears a very nice dress at one point.
Two famous artists are namechecked.
There’s something very strange cooking on the barbecue.
Take it away with the speculation!
