There seems to be a running trend in social media right now of voicing unpopular opinions as conversation starters. While we have no issues with this practice — it does, after all, spur some interesting discussions — it has an undertone at times that implies that what is about to be shared will be upsetting, inflammatory, or the seed of debate-turned-argument. We’re positive people, and try to find some quality and enjoyment in most of what we consume, so we tend not to drift into this sort of thing. That said: we had to put a little more work than usual in highlighting the great things about the Season 12 closing story.
We were ultimately able to, damned if we will be daunted, but just the same. It was work. Sort of like trying to do your job with a rather uncomfortable, distressing pack on your back, that if you attempt to remove it…oh, you get the idea.
This time around, we put Sarah Jane and Harry through some shoulder-gripping struggle, as they deal with a foe they were assured was eradicated in “Revenge of the Cybermen”. The cybernetic soldiers are back with a new look, new voice, and new agenda. Haley learns that the council of Voga don’t know anything about bad poetry, Keir does a little digging to find out why a certain famous seal keeps appearing, and Jay wonders how long it takes to wash gold dust off sweaty hands.
